Quotable quotes

It's taken way too long to start this thread. Stuff locals have said that sticks with you.

When in doubt...go sailing
-zzholt (Gary):

It looks like a pretty day. I hate pretty days. (The tendency of nice, mild days to be low/no wind)
- Gene Mathis

It was a hard wind (A strong and gusty day)
- Gene Mathis

It wasn't a good day but it was a necessary day. (A particularly gusty day after a long dry spell)
- Chris Voith

I've never been too scared to watch.
- Chris Voith quoting a buddy from his hang gliding days.

Others we should add?

Corollary to not too scared to watch, translated for sailing– "I'd rather be on shore wishing I was out there, than the other way around" Good

The wind is our master, not our servant.

What happens in a black hole stays in a black hole.
