Newsletter #17 : The Gift of Friendship

The Gift of Friendship

Friendship is a priceless gift

That can’t be bought or sold,

But its value is far greater

Than a mountain made of gold.

For gold is cold and lifeless,

It cannot see nor hear,

And in your times of trouble,

It is powerless to cheer.

It has no ears to listen,

No heart to understand.

It cannot bring you comfort

Or reach out a helping hand.

So when you ask God for a gift,

Be thankful that he sends,

Not diamonds, pearls, or riches,

But the love of a real, true friend.

-Helen Steiner Rice

The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.

Ernest Hemingway
