The paddle-boat

Life is not an ocean whose currents, in their spirited capriciousness, will convey to our destinations, or even at the least to some pleasant, sunny island where we can settle comfortably on the tepid sand. Rather, it is a little paddle-boat on which we must paddle with all our strength. If for a moment we recline, the waters will sweep us still further from our destinations – they are almost always never in our favor.
