Our most difficult task as a friend is to offer understanding when we don't understand.
It is not so much our friends' help that helps us, as the confidence of their help.
There is magic in long-distance friendships. They let you relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound.
There is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul.
What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.
