Today we’ll touch on friendship. Amid all the great quotes out there, I believe this one speaks to exactly what I wanted to express.
“Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried,
Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel;
But do not dull thy palm with entertainment
Of each new-hatch’d, unfledg’d comrade.”
– William Shakespeare
Without going into unneeded amounts of discourse, this quote is for my friends. If you’re able to keep the friends you grow up with, that you experience life with, give everything you have to doing so. The bond that you build is not easily broken. These are the friends that you may not talk to for months, or perhaps years, but when you do finally get together you start off like you didn’t miss a step.
New friendships are important as well, as life situations change, but I wanted the focus of this to be on ones from early in life. Do not lose sight of those friendships you already have.
To my friends… Cheers!
