Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money.
Marrying for love may be a bit risky, but it is so honest that God can't help but smile on it.
The inordinate love of money, no doubt, may be and is 'the root of all evil,' but money itself, when properly used, is not only a 'handy thing to have in the house,' but affords the gratification of blessing our race by enabling its possessor to enlarge the scope of human happiness and human influence.
I'm treating you as a friend asking you to share my present minuses in the hope that I can ask you to share my future pluses.
Friendship isn't about whom you have known the longest. It's about who came, and never left your side.
I cut myself in the finger, and it pains me: this finger is a part of me. I see a friend hurt, and it hurts me, too: my friend and I are one.
A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.
I have a friend that's like a mirror and shadow; Mirrors don't lie and shadows never leave.
If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship, we must love friends for their sake rather than for our own.
