Why we need friends

Because of a friend, life is a little stronger, fuller, more gracious thing for the friend's existence, whether he be near or far. If the friend is close at hand, that is best; but if he is far away he still is there to think of, to wonder about, to hear from, to write to, to share life and experience with, to serve, to honor, to admire, to love. - Arthur Christopher Benson

My friends are little lamps to me. Their radiance warms and cheers my ways. And all the pathway dark and lone is brightened by their rays. I try to keep them bright by faith. And never let them dim with doubt; For every time I lose a friend, a little lamp goes out. - Elizabeth Whittemore

At every crisis in one's life, it is absolute salvation to have some sympathetic friend to whom you can think aloud without restraint or misgiving. - Woodrow Wilson

Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly. - Unknown

A true friend hears the song in your heart and sings it to you when your memory fails. - Unknown
