Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are.
The little reed, bending to the force of the wind, soon stood upright again when the storm had passed over.
Though the sex to which I belong is considered weak you will nevertheless find me a rock that bends to no wind.
Words empty as the wind are best left unsaid.
The autumn wind is a pirate. Blustering in from sea with a rollicking song he sweeps along swaggering boisterously. His face is weather beaten, he wears a hooded sash with a silver hat about his head... The autumn wind is a Raider, pillaging just for fun.
I have spent a great deal of my life being part of minorities. Some of the people I admire the most in the world have had the courage to defend, against wind and tide, minority viewpoints in those frightening times when any disagreement with universal conformity is identified as treason.
Antonio Munoz Molina
If you are bitter, you are like a dry leaf that you can just squash, and you can get blown away by the wind. There is much more wisdom in forgiveness.
Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame!
William Butler Yeats
Winning is like shaving - you do it every day or you wind up looking like a bum.
I want to go and go, and then drop dead in the middle of something I'm loving to do. And if that doesn't happen, if I wind up sitting in a wheelchair, at least I'll have my high heels on.
When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing - just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?
I am a being of Heaven and Earth, of thunder and lightning, of rain and wind, of the galaxies.
I keep sailing on in this middle passage. I am sailing into the wind and the dark. But I am doing my best to keep my boat steady and my sails full.
When men sow the wind it is rational to expect that they will reap the whirlwind.
A great wind is blowing, and that gives you either imagination or a headache.
Catherine the Great
Put two ships in the open sea, without wind or tide, and, at last, they will come together. Throw two planets into space, and they will fall one on the other. Place two enemies in the midst of a crowd, and they will inevitably meet; it is a fatality, a question of time; that is all.
A great wind swept over the ghetto, carrying away shame, invisibility and four centuries of humiliation. But when the wind dropped people saw it had been only a little breeze, friendly, almost gentle.
Companies should not have a singular view of profitability. There needs to be a balance between commerce and social responsibility... The companies that are authentic about it will wind up as the companies that make more money.
The older you get the stronger the wind gets - and it's always in your face.
The sound of 'gentle stillness' after all the thunder and wind have passed will the ultimate Word from God.
Wind to a sailor is what money is to life on shore.
At home, I love reaching out into that absolute silence, when you can hear the owl or the wind.
Sailing a boat calls for quick action, a blending of feeling with the wind and water as well as with the very heart and soul of the boat itself. Sailing teaches alertness and courage, and gives in return a joyousness and peace that but few sports afford.
George Matthew Adams
A certain amount of opposition is a great help to a man. Kites rise against, not with, the wind.

Neil Patrick Harris
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
