Thought for the Week: give the gift of Friendship

"Much of the vitality in a friendship lies in the honouring of differences, not simply in the enjoyment of similarities." — Unknown

"Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over." — Gloria Naylor (African- American novelist and educator, b. 1950)

"The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart." — Elisabeth Foley

"The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing… not healing, not curing… that is a friend who cares." — Henri Nouwen (Dutch writer 1932 – 1996)

"You can gain more friends by being yourself than you can by putting up a front. You can gain more friends by building people up than you can by tearing them down. And you can gain more friends by taking a few minutes from each day to do something kind for someone, whether it be a friend or a complete stranger. What a difference one person can make!" — Sasha Azevedo (American Actress, Athlete and Model)
