There are many moments in friendship, as in love, when silence is beyond words. The faults of our friend may be clear to us, but it is well to seem to shut our eyes to them.
Friendship is usually treated by the majority of mankind as a tough and everlasting thing which will survive all manner of bad treatment.
But this as an exceedingly great and foolish error; it may die in an hour of a single unwise word; its conditions of existence are that it should be dealt with delicately and tenderly, being as it is a sensitive plant not a roadside thistle. We must not expect our friend to be above humanity.
To all my beloved friend...thank you for being my friend!!!
