Wednesday Wisdom

The Ancient Mariner said to Neptune during a great storm,
“Oh God, you will save me if you wish, but I am going
to go on holding my tiller straight.”
~ Michel De Montaigne

  1. Wonderful, yes, we need to continue moving forward on our own course, whether we believe or not. So much said in so few words here about resilience I think. 🙂


    1. Having faith in God’s will is good, but that doesn’t mean we sit back and do nothing waiting for God to take care of us. We must “hold the tiller straight.” IOW, we must do the work that keeps us straight. My mother-in-law likes to say, “Even God can’t drive a parked car.” 🙂
