"The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in this hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face us with the reality of our powerlessness. That's a friend who cares. "
"Some people come into our lives and go quickly. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on your heart and we are never the same."
"Everyone hears what you say, friends listen to what you say, best friends listen to what they say."
"Some acquaintances sweep in and out of his life as a storm. Real friends are those who, like sunlight, wait behind the clouds for a chance to shine through."
