We all brought a little gift to exchange and some of us brought quotations or thoughts related to friendship. Here's a sampling:
"A friend is someone who dares to ask the hard questions." (Marian H., SIL)
"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: 'What! You, too? Thought I was the only one.'" (C. S. Lewis, author)
"Only God can be a perfect friend, for he has promised, 'Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.'" (Rose L., ReachAcross)
"I've discovered a way to stay friends forever --
There's really nothing to it.
I simply tell you what to do
And you do it!" (Shel Silverstein, author of The Giving Tree)
