    That's a great quote @Jade.

    And here are 2 other great quotes, also attributed to Maya Angelou.
    "When someone shows you who they are, believe them..the first time."

    "I did then, what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better." :)

    (I meant to post this on Saint Patrick's Day, of course; but it's a nice sentiment always.)

    "There are good ships,
    And there are wood ships
    The ships that sail the sea;
    But the best ships are friendships
    And may they always be."

    Irish proverb :)
