This Week...Friends Old and New
Moving back to Houston has given me the opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones. One I’ve known for about 40 years and some for only a short while.
True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island... to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing. Baltasar Gracian
It’s a funny thing about friends...we all need them whether we’d like to admit it or not.
When the world is so complicated, the simple gift of friendship is within all of our hands. Maria Shriver
Friends cannot be taken for granted, though. We have to appreciate them and let them know how much they mean to us.
A true friend freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably. William Penn
It seems that when we’re younger we have many friends and acquaintances. Through our work and the activities of our children, we have any number of people to call for a drink or lunch or to attend a concert or ball game.
But as we get older, our circle of true friends can get smaller.
Depth of friendship does not depend on length of acquaintance. Rabindranath Tagore
Have a weekend treasuring your friends.
