G. K. Chesterton
The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.
William M. Thackeray
The world is a looking glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face.
There is a scarcity of friendship, but not of friends.
There is no friend as loyal as a book.
There is nothing better than the encouragement of a good friend.
There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.
Charles "Tremendous" Jones
