The secret of goodness and greatness is in choosing whom you will approach and live with, in memory or imagination, through the crowding obvious people who seem to live with you.
—Robert Browning.

Fair Nature's book together read,
The old wood-paths that knew our tread,
The maple shadows overhead—

Where'er I look, where'er I stray,
Thy thought goes with me on my way,
And hence the prayer I breathe to-day.

—John Greenleaf Whittier.

Shall two walk together, except they have agreed?
—Amos 3. 3.

Lord God, I thank thee for the delight of congenial companions and the memory of friendship. May I not be quick to lose my friends through misunderstanding and selfishness. May I be considerate and constant and be able to climb to the highest steeps of friendship. Amen.
