Did Thomas S. Monson echo Dolly Parton?

We can't direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails

While reading the First Presidency message this month ("Living the Abundant Life"), I read the above quote (seemingly from President Monson--it didn't have quotation marks around it) and really liked it.  But I googled it, and while I can't confirm it, it appears more often attributed to Dolly Parton.  (Several other names pop up too.)

Does there reach a point where a catchy phrase becomes common property?
