One ship drives east and another west,
With the self-same winds that blow;
‘Tis the set of the sails and not the gales
That determines where they go.
Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate,
As we voyage along through life;
‘Tis the set of a soul that decides its goal–
And not the calm or the strife.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
