In the hour of distress and misery the eye of every mortal turns to friendship; in the hour of gladness and conviviality, what is your want? It is friendship. When the heart overflows with gratitude or with other sweet and sacred sentiment, what is the word to which it would give utterance? A friend.

—Walter Savage Landor.


The hurried quest of some people to get hold of new friends is so perpetual that they never have time to get acquainted with anyone.

—M. B. S.


Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not;

And go not to thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity:

Better is a neighbor that is near than a brother far off.

—Proverbs 27. 10.


My Lord and my Friend, I pray that my sympathy may be sincere and comforting, and with a glad heart I may bring rejoicing to my friends. May I learn from thee how I may be a permanent friend. Amen.
