“If a man knows not to which port he sails, no wind is favourable.” — Seneca

It means you need to have a purpose in life. There has to be something that you want to accomplish and that is important for you. If you don’t have a purpose in your life, you will never know which way you want to sail.

In other words, you will not have the direction and will never know which is the right path for you.
