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 :)

Is it weird that when someone said "things that glitter" my first thought was you?
At times, when we're so focused on 'who' we are, we forget 'where' we are.

  • Yul B. Sorry Yul B. Sorry:
    I know what your going to say: why stealing? Well l was force into this way of life due to everything money and not choosing to be poor and in a homeless shetler. My family and friends have abandoned me. And so l saw Carmen on tv. Her superior stealing skills and how she gets away from ACME. I wanted to be just like her to escape the careless outside world and steal and get away with it. I want to join her crew of VILE Henchmen. I know them all. Double Trouble, Vic The Slick, Eartha Brute, Patty Larceny.......

    Oh well, l did pickpocket and steal people's belongings. Like their fast food dinners and groceries. The Double Trouble twins taught me that during my training. But now, its Carmen's turn to train me to steal the world's treasures and landmarks etc etc.
