The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,
nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one
when you discover that someone else believes in you
and is willing to trust you with a friendship.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Each friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born
until they arrive.
A friend is a gift you give yourself.
~Robert Louis Stevenson
A true friend is the greatest blessing
of all blessings.
~Francois de la Rochefoucauld
Nobody sees a flower ~ really~

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.
If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
May all beings everywhere
be free from suffering.
May all beings everywhere be fed.
May all beings everywhere be peaceful.
May all beings everywhere be happy.
My religion is very simple~
my religion is kindness.
You can make more friends in two months
by becoming interested in other people
than you can in two years
by trying to get other people
interested in you.
You can discover more about a person
in an hour of play
than in a year of conversation.
The ornament of a house
are the friends who frequent it.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
There was a definite process by which
one made peopleinto friends,
and it involved talking to them
and listening to them
for hours at a time.
No road is too long
with good company.
