This is a thinking quote.
Tricky quote, that!I understand it's message.But guess I'm not scientific enough to understand it's reality.Can you guess that I never flew a kite?:-)~♥~
That is such an interesting quote. It certainly gives one something to think about.Teresa
Yep,higher AGAINST the wind,just don't "spit in the wind",teehehe!!~JoLazyonloblolly
Now, that's interesting - rising against the wind. I never knew this. Thanks for sharing!Come by to read today’s post: K is for Knight in Shining Armor~Cathy Kennedy, Children's AuthorThe Tale of Ole Green Eyes
Oh my, I need to go get a cup of coffee and read this one again....It's a little early out here! Love the quote and love the quoter?xxoo,RMW
It reminds me of the song "...against the wind"..beautiful photo,Jenny!
Love the "Kwote."And the Kites.=)
Lovely kites Jenny flowing in the wind.. You asked for the name of the flowers in my blog.I do know the name but not at this moment.:((( They grow everywhere in Spain and Italy and France and I suppose in more southern warmer countries.They don't grow very well in Holland, the climat is not right for it.Oh yes I know now. Bougainville is the name. LOL Have a good week. We will be on holidays in England next week but maybe I can post on my little notebook.Riet
I've been meaning to get a kite. Today would be the perfect day to fly one too.
I've always enjoyed kites. Down here they fly the most amazing kites over the river and the beach.I also buy them and tuck them in the grands Easter baskets. They love them too!~Ames
That explains a lot about why I could never get my kite to fly as a kid... and maybe why I'm not a high flyer now!! I'd rather go with the flow any day. It's much easier. Weren't Churchill's quotes wonderful though!
Great quote Jenny! Happy Kite flying to you...
They look so happy flying in the breeze!Melinda
Now that's deep! Like the words, love the photo!
Amen to that!
I have never heard of that quote before ... quite brilliant and thought provoking! I am so glad you shared this with us all!
Who knew? I thought kites went with the wind! I always go against the wind, yet I never fly! Waaaaa!
Beautiful post. Great quote. True also of red kites.
One of those times when going against the wind is the only way to soar to new heights!
what a lovely kite.
Sometimes I wish I could fly above all the drama, like a kite.
Now that's a great quote, and way better than the famous one from Nietzsche. The wind, the kites - great images in my mind.
Oh, Winston was such a smart man! Jenny!! LOL!! Suburban taupe/brown is one of your favorite colors? Surely it's something bright and wonderful like mango yellow or coral red or cobalt blue or something else worthy of a great blog post. :-)Have a wonderful holiday weekend!!!!!!
I am a kite person. When I was young, we made kites out of balsa wood and the London Times. I taught my children to fly kites and they love them as much as I do!! Great post, Miss Jenny!!
There is something very therapeutic about flying a kite!Winston was certainly one who rose against the wind. He was at his greatest while he was leading through the time of crisis and darkness."Keep buggering on!"
Ah, kites.... I think I've only played with a kite only once or twice ever. It was a lot of work getting it up in the air though.
Not convinced, I have to try it out myself ! I thought the wind has to blow under it ! Not with or against, lol !
Nice choice of K-word, lovely image of the kites and great quote too! Best wishes & hugs,AnnaI am still packing!
A perfect K post. You know, I just watched "The Winds of War" a bigtime mini-series from the 1980's..... about WW2. Churchill was a wise, wise man.
certainly a quote to ponder. I love the cheerful joy of the photo!
AW, go fly a KITE!!Love this one :)
