Friendship, “the wine of life,” should, like a well-stocked cellar, be continually renewed; and it is consolatory to think, that although we can seldom add what will equal the generous first growths of our youth, yet friendship becomes insensibly old in much less time than is commonly imagined, and not many years are required to make it mellow and pleasant. Warmth will, no doubt, make a considerable difference. Men of affectionate temper and bright fancy will coalesce a great deal sooner than those who are cold and dull.
~ James Boswell

If a man does not make new acquaintance as he advances through life, he will soon find himself left alone. A man, Sir, should keep his friendship in constant repair.
~ Samuel Johnson

Have patience with all things but first with yourself. Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being. You're a perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist. And no amount of triumphs or tribulations can ever change that. Unconditional self acceptance is the core of a peaceful mind. ~ St. Francis de Sales

This Is My Wish For You

Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sometimes in life,
You find a special friend;
Someone who changes your life
Just by being part of it.
Someone who makes you laugh
Until you can't stop;
Someone who makes you believe
That there really is good in the world.
Someone who convinces you
That there really is an unlocked door
Just waiting for you to open it.

Making a hundered
friends is not a miracle.
The miracle is to make a
single friend who will
stand by your side even
when hundreds
are against you

True Friendship

True friendship isn't who you've known the longest...
It's who showed up when you needed them the most.
It's who listens to understand you, not just to reply.
Someone who helps you, without an agenda.
The people who encourage you, believe in you, and love you.
They are honest, loyal and thoughtful.
True friends make time for you, not excuses.
They are the ones you can spend time with making the best of memories...
yet also go awhile without seeing them and nothing has changed.


Fight for you
Respect you
Include you
Encourage you
Need you
Deserve you
Stand by you

Good friends care for each other,
Close friends understand each other,
but True friends stay forever,
beyond Words,
beyond Distance,
beyond Time.
