Blow the Rest Away

Posted in Philosophy, quote(s) with tags , , , , , on July 11, 2010 by Tim R Wilson

Friendship is the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weight thoughts nor measure words, but pouring all right out just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful friendly hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of comfort, blow the rest away.”

~Arab Proverb, quoted in H. L. Roush, Jesus Loves Me, (Roush, 1978)

Special!

glory of friendship

Posted in odds and ends, quote(s) with tags , , , , , on March 21, 2010 by Tim R Wilson

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with friendship.”
