Flying with friends

I am blessed to have wonderful friends. They bring balance and sometimes chaos into my life. Most of all they love and support me regardless of what I do. Below are a couple of quotes that sum up friendship for me. If you know of any other quotes, kindly share them. Thanks in advance.

Rachel Naomi Remen:The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.

Zora Neale Hurston: It seems to me that trying to live without friends is like milking a bear to get cream for your morning coffee. It is a whole lot of trouble, and then not worth much after you get it.

"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe unto him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up."
~ The Bible: Ecclesiastes 4:9-10.

This is one of my favorite quotes about the importance of friends and what they mean to me in my life. We were not meant to live life alone and it truly is a blessing to have friends.
