Do You Feel Buffeted About By the Winds of Life? Heres 5 Thought Provoking Solutions

From Denny: With all the intense and dangerous weather issues going on globally I looked around for some interesting wind quotes. Wind is often used as a metaphor for politics and the experience of living, enduring and triumphing in Life.

Here are a couple regarding wind as a metaphor for politics:


* A great wind is blowing, and that gives you either imagination or a headache. - Queen Catherine II

* I've seen public opinion shift like the wind and put out the very fire it lighted. - Rachel Field

Here are a few regarding our interaction with what Life brings us:


* Botanists say that trees need the powerful March winds to flex their trunks and main branches, so the sap is drawn up to nourish the budding leaves. Perhaps we need the gales of life in the same way, though we dislike enduring them. - Jane Truax

* Let mystery have its place in you; do not be always turning up your whole soil with the ploughshare of self-examination, but leave a little fallow corner in your heart ready for any seed the winds may bring... - Henri Frederic Amiel

* If the winds of fortune are temporarily blowing against you, remember that you can harness them and make them carry you toward your definite purpose, throught the use of your imagination. - Napolean Hill

Here's what I have today over at Dennys Global Politics:
