“A man that hath friend must shew himself friendly” Prov. 18:24 Print E-mail

Friendship needs a threefold cord: two human hearts and God.

*   *   *   *   *

Love your friends, not for your sake, but for their own; not for what you can get out of them, but for what you can be to them in unselfish blessing. –A.B.S.

“What is the secret of your life?” asked Mrs. Browning of Charles Kingsley; “tell me, that I may make mine beautiful too.”  He replied, “I had a friend.”

*   *   *   *   *

We must be as careful to keep friends as to make them.

*   *   *   *   *

Write to me very often,
For letters are links that bind
Faithful souls to each other
Fettering mind to mind.
Giving to kindly spirits
Lasting and true delight.
So if you would strengthen friendship
Never forget to write.

*   *   *   *   *

The aim of true friendship is not to make life easy for one’s friend, but to make something of the friend. – J.R. MILLER.
