- Friendship -

Misfortune shows those who are not really friends
Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC)

Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods
Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC)

Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation
George Washington, First president of US (1732 - 1799)
