Hector, I love love love this quote! I gave my priest friend a Christmas present that was kind of different. He loves to travel.
I mean he finds all of the really neat off the road wonders and shares them. Some are beautiful,
some are funny, some are full of intrigue and are mysterious. So,
for Christmas, I purchased him a little travel journal. On the bottom of each page, I wrote in cursive a favorite quote of mine about travel and discovery, etc.
I found this quote when I was preparing this gift for him. I fell in love with it. He also loved the gift.

Suzzane, that soundslike a most wonderful gift for a very unique person. I'm not sure where I found this quote, but I have kept it in a special place. We need courage to live fully, and to live without regrets...

This is good for me right now, as my husband is self employed and begining an apsotolate of gigantic proportions. I tend to want to play it safter, you know, why not just "get a regualr job", and just hang with our seven kids. He is bolder, and feels called. So, this quote gave me a little shot in the arm, thankyou.

You are welcome! Of course, we need to be in prayer to listen to God's will. Think back to the New Testament... Jesus, the apostles, St. Paul, Mary Magdalene... they all threw off the bowlines to fully live their calling...

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

I went to RC Mass in Walsingham a year or so ago. They sang a wonderful song (modern hymn) written by the director of music in Hallam diosese (Sheffield)
Cast out into the deep
Leave safe harbours behind
Our God is with us....

can't remember more, but it was GREAT. I loved it and it spoke to me then and now.

Sailing boats are meant to be sailed and our lives are meant to be lived for GOD

be blessed
