The only faith that wears well and holds its color in all weathers, is that which is woven of conviction and set with the sharp mordant of experience.
Of doues I haue a dainty paire Which, when you please to take the aier, About your head shall gently houer, Your cleere browe from the sunne to couer, And with their nimble wings shall fan you That neither cold nor heate shall tan you, And like umbrellas, with their feathers Sheeld you in all sorts of weathers.Michael Drayton

The seas and the weathers are what is; your vessels adapt to them or sink.tim powers
There is a flower, a little flower With silver crest and golden eye, That welcomes every changing hour, And weathers every sky.james montgomery
