Inspirational Quotes for Reflection:
"The glory of friendship is not in the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is in the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, What! You too? I thought I was the only one."
"Friendship can be purchased only by friendship. A man may have authority over others, but he can never have their heart but by giving his own."
"Most of us have business associates, casual acquaintances, and occasional companions. Real friends, on the other hand, are not so easy to acquire. Friendship rests upon more than accidental relationships or even association in a common task. Its roots lie in the spiritual realm."
