Quote of the Week

Here's this week's quote:

"You can't run from the wind. You trim your sails, face the music and keep going." - Captain Christopher Shelton, S/V Albatross (from the movie White Squall)

White Squall is one of my all-time favorite movies. Yes, I love the fact that it takes place on a sailboat in the Caribbean. But I also love the story of boys becoming men and people coming together as a tight-knit team to overcome extraordinary circumstances.

Captain Christopher Shelton (brilliantly played by Jeff Bridges) has a very stern sense of wisdom. Almost all of his lines in the movie make for memorable quotes. I particularly like the life applications of the quote shown above. Life isn't about what happens to you, but rather how you react to what happens in your life.
