By the way, the phrase “two ships passing in the night” originates from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s “Tales of a Wayside Inn:”
Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing;
Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another,
Only a look and a voice; then darkness again and a silence.
(and yes, in case you were wondering, I was an English major, and am still a huge English nerd.)
