Soon the gardens will be lush with flowers, kids will play past dark catching fireflies, bands will play concerts under the stars, and the smell of cookouts will permeate the air. One of the things I love best about this season is getting together with family and friends.
Here are a few great sayings about friendship:
"The only way to have a friend is to be one." Emerson
"Be true to your word, your work and your friend." Henry David Thoreau
"I wonder if there is anything in this world as beautiful as good, strong friendship." Wilbur D. Nesbit
"There is no better looking glass than friendship." Thomas Fuller
"People who have warm friends are healthier and happier than those who have none. A single real, true friend is a treasure worth more than gold or precious stones." G.D. Prentice
"Friendship is the wine of life." Edward Young
Reading a great book is like finding new friends, too. Augustine Birrell said, "Friendship is a world the very sight of which in print makes the heart warm."
Well said, Augustine.
