Celebrating Spring: Friendship

"The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart." - Elizabeth Foley

"Silence makes the real conversations between friends. Not the saying but the never needing to say is what counts." - Margaret Lee Runbeck

"A friend is one who joyfully sings with you when you are on the mountain top, and silently walks beside you through the valley." - William A. Ward

"Friendship is not diminished by distance or time... by suffering or silence. It is in these things that it roots most deeply. It is from these things that it flowers." - Unknown

I have seen this quote attributed to Pam Brown:

"In loneliness, in sickness, in confusion-the mere knowledge of friendship makes it possible to endure, even if the friend is powerless to help. It is enough that they exist. Friendship is not diminished by distance or time, by imprisonment or war, by suffering or silence. It is in these things that it roots most deeply. It is from these things that it flowers. "
