Wednesday Musings

I'm going with quotes today instead of poems. Oh...and a pretty.

A man's growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world.
Leo Buscaglia

A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
Arnold H. Glasow

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.

Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
George Washington

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.
C. S. Lewis

Friendship needs no words - it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness.
Dag Hammarskjold

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
Henry Ellis

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
Anton Chekhov

I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. Scratch where it itches.
Alice Roosevelt Longworth


  1. Those are lovely, Shawn. Here are a couple of my favorites on the same topic:

    "People who are going to get along really well know it almost as soon as they meet. You spend a little while talking and everyone starts to feel this conviction, you're all equally sure that you're at the beginning of something good. That's how it is when you meet people you're going to be with for a long time." — Banana Yoshimoto (Goodbye Tsugumi)

    "Your friends will know you better in the first minute you meet than your acquaintances will know you in a thousand years." — Richard Bach

  2. Oh those are good. Excellent additions.

  3. Fabulous quotes! I completely agree with Chekhov. It's the everyday crap that's gonna kill me.

  4. These are lovely Shawn...

    The second one I can relate to - My BFF is so dear to me, just seeing him makes up for alot of evils in my days...

    Thank you for these...
