"We have met the enemy...and he is us." Walt Kelly.

"Most misery is self inflicted." Me.

Just go out and do it. If you think you can-you can. If you think you can't-you're right!

We considered ourselves a howling success when someone asked me very seriously"so you guys are retired?" when we told them what we had been doing in the past year or so.
I go to work to rest up from the weekends!

Less uplifting, but equally entertaining!

Those quotes are quite inspirational (and undoubtedly true), but my favorite (and utterly truthful) cruising quote is this Bierce-like definition:

Cruising: The fine art of repairing your boat in exotic locations.

Salt water can cure most things: whether its tears, sweat or cruising the ocean.
