A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor.

To reach a port we must set sail.  Sail, not tie at anchor.  Sail, not drift.

Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945) was the 32nd President of the United States (1933-1945).  Both of these quotes were spoken during one of his “Fireside Chats” on April 14, 1938.  Roosevelt used these radio addresses to rally America during the Great Depression and World War II.
