Friendship Day (7/30/12)

Today is National Friendship Day founded of course by Hallmark in 1919 in an effort to sell more cards. The United Nations endorsed it in 2011...
So in honor of National Friendship Day...

A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.

A friend should be one in whose understanding and virtue we can equally confide, and whose opinion we can value at once for its justness and its sincerity.

A friend to all is a friend to none.

A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so often - just to save it from drying out completely.

A friendship founded on business is better than a business founded on friendship.

A hug is like a boomerang - you get it back right away.

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

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