"Your friend is your needs answered.
He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.
And he is your board and your fireside.
For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.
And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed."
- Excerpt from Kahlil Gibran’s On Friendship
I am taking a break from my individual tribute and instead would like to dedicate this one to all of you. Thank you all for your friendship - in it I always find my morning, and I have been constantly refreshed.
And here's a song for all of you (video will open in a new window)
THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR
