ROW!!!!

Oops. I’m a little late for my quote this week.

Thought this was a good one….

If the wind will not serve,
take to the oars.
Destitutus ventis, remos adhibe
– Latin Proverb

Have a fantabulous week everybody!!

  1. Hi Selma,
    Great photos, nothing like being out on the water on a beautiful day.
    Love the quote, and lets face it, that is very true. πŸ˜€

    1. It is so true, Mags. In more ways than one. And what a workout rowing is. You should see the arms on that rowing squad. Buff to the max!

  2. Oooh! I like that one too! Life is intended to be about interaction, not a passive state! We have to be willing to do what is necessary to make it possible for good things to happen!

  3. Great quote. It made me think of a sailing ship being towed by its crew, rowing the longboat to give them something to do in the doldrums.
    The weather (except for yesterday) has been perfect! Eat your heart out, Gabrielle!

    1. Now now. We won’t have any Sydney – Queensland weather rivalry here, Stafford πŸ˜‰ But I suppose it’s one of the few points of difference we have left now that our states are being crushed in similar ways by the Newman/O’Farrell demagogue machine. No choice but to just keep rowing…..

    1. It’s quite an inspirational quote for me and fits in with my current philosophy of not giving up. And of course, I love boats and the sea. All round winner!

  4. No point sitting on our laurels – may as well row πŸ˜‰ another great quote Selma (hope that wind just sticks to Stafford’s boat and doesn’t bother your part of town – haha)

  5. I love this philosophy. Never give up, never say die. Do what ya gotta do but do it. Noone said it would be easy and if it doesn’t work one way, we try another. That is what life is, or should be, about!

  6. You can’t give up. A lot of the time I feel like giving up, but seriously, what does that mean? Sitting in a corner rocking back and forth for ever. Not a good look. Just keep rowing….
