Topic: FRIENDS, FRIENDSHIP

Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, share a word of praise and they always open their hearts to us."

Written with a pen. Sealed with a kiss. If you are my friend, please answer this:
Are we friends or are we not? You told me once, but I forgot. So tell me now. And tell me true. So I can say.....I'm here for you. Of all the friends I've met, you're the one I won't forget. And if I die before you do, I'll go to heaven and wait for you. Send this to all of your friends who mean the most to you. We secure our friends not by accepting favors but by doing them. Paul Harvey.. Good Day!

Friends Are Like Angels
Our friends are like angels,
Who brighten our days.
In all kinds of wonderful,
Magical ways.

Their thoughtfulness comes,
As a gift from above.
And we feel we're surrounded,
By warm, caring love.

Like upside-down rainbows,
Their smiles bring the sun.
And they fill ho-hum moments,
With laughter and fun.

Friends are like angels,
Without any wings.
Blessing our lives,
With the most precious things.

Here is a floating angel sent to watch over you...
Pass this on to the people you want watched over...

Learn to reject friendship, or rather the dream of friendship. To want friendship is a great fault. Friendship ought to be a gratuitous joy, like the joys afforded by art, or life (like aesthetic joys). I must refuse it in order to be worthy to receive it.
Simone Weil (1909–43), French philosopher, mystic. The Pre-War Notebook (1933–39; published in First and Last Notebooks, ed. by Richard Rees, 1970).

In poverty and other misfortunes of life, true friends are
a sure refuge. The young they keep out of mischief;
to the old they are a comfort and aid in their weakness,
and those in the prime of life they incite to noble deeds.
-- Aristotle
Comment: We have a friend in Jesus…no truer friend indeed.

Life is to be fortified by many friendships. To love and
be loved is the greatest happiness of existence.
-- Sydney Smith
Comment: Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so.

What I cannot love, I overlook. Is that real friendship?
-- Anais Nin
Comment: The little ones, who so many overlook in life, need a friend. To love the little ones, to love the beggar, the down and out, the alcoholic, the homeless, the destitute, requires that we all see ourselves in the reflection of their eyes. To be their friend requires the utmost in humility. These little ones are called to Jesus for He loves them and has compassion and mercy for them.

Poor is the friendless master of a world.
-- Edward Young
Comment: We will always have poor people on the earth until Jesus returns. When Jesus returns what account will we give in regard to the poor in our midst?

Constant use had not worn ragged the fabric of
their friendship.
-- Dorothy Parker
Comment: Over the years, true friendship does not wear thin, it wears thicker.
