Quotations

A friend is a gift you give yourself.

Better mad with the rest of the world than wise alone.

The Art of Worldly Wisdom (1647)

The things we remember the best are those better forgotten.

True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island…to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.
