On Friendship

"Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation."
--George Washington

"He who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare,
And he who has one enemy will meet him everywhere."
--Ali ibn-Abi-Talib
"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed."
--Carl Jung

"Never explain yourself: your friends won't need it and your enemies won't believe you anyway."
--Elbert Hubbard

"We are friends and I do like to pass the day with you in serious and inconsequential chatter. I wouldn't mind washing up beside you, dusting beside you, reading the back half of the paper while you read the front. We are friends and I would miss you, do miss you and think of you very often."
--Jeannette Winterson

"True friends stab you in the front."
--Oscar Wilde

"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."

"A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked."
--Bernard Meltzer

Sometimes we put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down. I'll miss a lot of great people this long, hot, lonely summer faraway.
I love you guys :'-) Truly exceptional friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.

That's us, but we're cuter.
