Our home is where our friends abide. We are lonely in the crowded city, if our friends are not there; we are contented in the desert wild, if our friends are about us.
Charles Edward Locke
Friends enliven music AND life.
Friends eat, drink, and converse.
Friends solve problems.
Friends inspire marathons.
Friends hike Machu Picchu.
Friends backpack, climb mountains,
AND bring you out.
Friends ensure you fly.
Friends get you through...
...and conjure up memories.
Some men may be acquaintances merely, but one whom I have been accustomed to regard, to idealize, to have dreams about as a friend, and mix up intimately with myself, can never denigrate into an acquaintance.
Henry David Thoreau
