Oh, rowing! Oh , life!

“It is hard to make that 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 stronger in overcoming them.”

—George Yeoman Pocock

(Of course, the quote addresses so much more than rowing; but it’s such a perfect metaphor. So to supplement, a photo of the boat I rowed in [I’m the one without sleeves in seven seat!] while at RIT. Also, you all must read ‘The Boys in the Boat’.)
