Men do change, and change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like the stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass.
True courage is like a kite; a contrary wind raises it higher.
We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.
Words empty as the wind are best left unsaid.
I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things... I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind.
It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.
