Friends like you

If when climbing up life's ladder
You can reach a hand below,
Just to help the other fellow,
Up another rung, or so
It will be that in the future,
When you're growing weary, too,
You'll be glad to find there's someone
Who will lend a hand to you

Be A Friend

Just a little labor spend
Be a friend. The pay is bigger
You'll be richer in the end

By William Butler Yeats

Remember to always say what you mean.
If you love someone, tell them.
Don't be afraid to express yourself.
Reach out and tell someone
what they mean to you.
Because when you decide that it is
the right time it might be too late.

for they have helped make you
the person that you are today.

"Friends create the world anew each day.
Without their loving care, courage would not
suffice to keep hearts strong for life."
"Do not protect yourself by a fence,
but rather by your friends."
"Did I choose you? Did you choose me?

"Perhaps the most delightful friendships
are those in which there is
much agreement, much disputation,
and yet more personal liking."
