A friend to whom you would answer, “YES,” without reservation, before
you even know what the question is.
If you do indeed have such a friend – you might want to forward this to
them with a little note. A note that says something like, “When I saw this –
YOU came to mind.”
Fortunate, indeed. That’s the kind of friendship I was thinking of when I wrote, “US: Celebrating the Power of Friendship.”
Such significant friendships can be woven so deeply into our lives – we forget to pause and honor them. Perhaps today –
you can remember and let them know.
Here are some of my favorite words on the subject of friendship:
True friendship is a plant of slow growth. – George Washington –
Today I am still close to you in spirit – a little your friend, because I withhold nothing from you. – Albert Camus –
Being a friend to dogs and men is a good day’s work. – Bevins Jay –
Raise the Bridge, my friend is sailing by. – St. Augustine –
The antidote for fifty enemies is one friend. – Aristotle –
I am your friend, accept no substitutes. – Groucho Marx -
