'One who fights back to back'

There Are Those Who Pass Like Ships In The Night
Who Meet For A Moment, Then Sail Out Of Sight.
With Never A Backwards Glance Of Regret.
Folks We Know Briefly Then Quickly Forget.
Then There Are Those Friends Who Sail Together
Through Quiet Waters And Stormy Weather
Helping Each Other Through Joy And Through Strife
And They Are The Kind That Give Meaning To Life.
.....Author Unknown

"Stay" is a charming word

in a friend's vocabulary.

.......Louisa May Alcott.

We cannot tell the precise moment
when friendship is formed.
As in filling a vessel drop by drop,
there is at last a drop which makes it run over;
so in a series of kindnesses,
there is at last one which makes the heart run over.
.....James Boswell

The meeting of two personalities

is like the contact of two chemical substances:

if there is any reaction, both are transformed.

in interest or

divided in purpose.

We stand together until the end.

and must undergo the shocks of adversity

Blessed is the influence of

one true, loving human

soul on another.

.....George Eliot

The person who tries to live alone
will not succeed as a human being.
His heart withers
if it does not answer another heart.
His mind shrinks away
if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts
and finds no other inspiration.
.....Pearl S. Buck

Friendship is neither formality

nor a mode: it is rather a life.

.....David Grayson

Give me one friend,
just one,
who meets the needs of all
my varying moods.
