Fortune cookie?

Fortune cookie: "We cannot direct the wind but we can adjust the sails." Do you like this fortune cookie message?

No. I think one of the things that separates human beings from animals is that the animal adapts to it's environment. Cold? grow some fur. To small? evolve yourself bigger. A human simply alters the environment. Cold? build a house. To small? get a gun. get some friends. get civilization. So actually, people would be more likely to adjust the wind to a more suitable speed than to adjust the sails
Yes, better than the one i got last week: "You will receive the last thing you wished for".
Yes; I like the message.

We cannot control the things that happen, but we can control how we react to them.
It's a good quote, a reminder we don't have to go with the flow. We can adjust the sail and go into the wind if we wish.
Life goes on; How can you conform to it? Take control of what you can.
