Poster: Adjust the Sails

We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.
(German proverb)

The source for the proverb is David Crystal's book, As They Say in Zanzibar: Proverbial Wisdom from Around the World (Oxford University Press: 2006). Crystal does not provide the proverbs in the original, but I would guess this might be the German: Wir können den Wind nicht ändern, aber die Segel anders setzen.
