That's a great quote @Jade.

And here are 2 other great quotes, also attributed to Maya Angelou.

(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 :)
