Make New Friends But keep the Old One is Silver and the other Gold!

I love my friends. I don't think that there is anything better than spending time with my friends. They always know how to make me smile, laugh and feel better. I can vent my life's frustrations and I know that in my time of need you would be there for me. I want you to know that I will always be there for you. I think that I am very lucky to have such wonderful people in my life. I just thought I'd put together some quotes on friendship as a tribute to my friends. Thank you all for being such an important part of my life. (you all know who you are.) I love you!

"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up." - Bible: Ecclesiastes
