Friendship is such a gift, isn't it? If you have a handful of true friends, you are rich and blessed indeed.
There are so many wonderful quotes about friendship. Muhammad Ali said, "Friendship ... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything." And Henry Van Dyke said, "A friend is what the heart needs all the time."
"One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood," said Lucius Annaeus Seneca. And Helen Keller left us with this thought, "Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light."
No doubt you have gone through difficult times when you found out who your true friends were. I surely have. Sometimes you get surprised by who stays and who leaves. As Walter Winchell said, "A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out." And it was Euripides who said, "Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness." Marlene Dietrich wisely added her own words, "It's the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter." Yes, indeed.
If you were to leave the world with just one quote about friendship, what would you say?
