Quote of the Day for YOU: There is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. In or out of ’em, it doesn’t matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that’s the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don’t; whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all, you’re always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you’ve done it there’s always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you’d much better not.”

Spoken by Ratty to Mole in Wind in the Willows a children’s book by Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932).

  1. This photograph talks by itself.. especially for sea/sailing lovers… But I also like the quote of the day too. Thank you, how nice to learn something new and how nice to meet with your blog. With my love, nia

  2. A great shot, and I love the quote!! Wind in the Willows is one of my favorites, and I re-read it at least once a year! While I don’t have a boat (we live where it is clasified as ‘high desert’), we have horses and this quote could be said of them.

  3. Although I’ve never had a boat, I know this to be true because my brother has three of them and he’s always busy with “The Boat”, thinking about it we’ve been around boats all our lives in my family, someone always had one and we were usually in one over the summer months. Even throughout the winter you have to go check on them, bail them out or get them ready for the next season. So, thanks so bringing this to my attention.
