“It is hard to make the boat go as fast as you want to. The enemy, of course, is resistance of the water, as you have to displace the amount of water equal to the weight of men and equipment, but that very water is what supports you and that very enemy is your friend. So is life: the very problems you must overcome also support you and make you strong in overcoming them.”

– George Yeoman Pocock (Boys In The Boat, by Daniel James Brown)
