Quotes for a Friend

You can always tell a real friend; when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.  ~Laurence J. Peter Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait for the answer.  ~Author Unknown A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out.  ~Grace Pulpit When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.  The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.  ~Henri Nouwen Are we not like two volumes of one book?  ~Marceline Desbordes-ValmoreFriendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art....  It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.  ~C.S.
