Really nothing new here today, but a look back on a few quotes about one of life's greatest treasures...friendship!
Nothing I can say is nearly as good as these few quotes by others. I think they about say it all.
Mighty proud I am that I am able to have a spare bed for my friends.
Never explain - your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway.

The language of friendship is not words but meanings.
Henry David Thoreau
The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.
Henry David Thoreau

Think where mans glory most begins and ends, and say my glory was I had such friends.
William Butler Yeats
True friends stab you in the front.
We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.
When a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.
Edward W. Howe
That's really all the deep thoughts I had for this Sunday. I hope you all have a great day!
I suggest we have our coffee inside the kitchen this morning. It's always better shared with friends!
