The Winds Of Fate.


The Winds of Fate.


One ship drives east and another drives west

With the self same winds that blow.

‘Tis the set of the sails,

And not the gales,

Which tell us the way to 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.
