顺,

              A boat can not always sail with the wind; an army can not always win battles.

解释 ( paraphrase )
行船不可能每次都遇到顺风, 打仗也不可能每次都能得胜利。
这条谚语告诉我们:做任何事情都不可能一帆风顺,总是会遇到一些困难或挫折。我们对于困难和挫折,必须要有充分的思想准备。

This proverb urges us to be fully prepared for difficulities and setbacks. It is impossible to have smooth sailing all the time.

常:经常。
      Always.

兵:军队。
      Troops

造句 ( example )
风无常顺,兵无常胜,不要被一时的困难打倒。
