Friends are the real superheroes. They battle our worst enemies-loneliness, grief, anxiety, depression, fear, and doubt-every time they come around.
It is not so much our friends’ help that helps us as the confident knowledge that they will help us.
But thou art with us, with us in the past,
The present, with us in the times to come.
There is no grief, no sorrow, no despair,
No languor, no dejection, no dismay,
No absence scarcely can there be, for those
Who love as we do. Speed thee well!
I won’t let my best friends do silly,stupid,annoying,funny things
The Court of Dreams.
The people who knew that there was a price, and one worth paying, for that dream.
The person who has never made an enemy will never make a friend.
I mean that everything this afternoon has been too beautiful, and that perhaps everything together will never be so right again. I’m very glad therefore you’ve been a part of it.
The only way to move from your reality to God’s reality is through people who love you.
You can trust us to stick to you through thick and thin – to the bitter end. And you can trust us to keep any secret of yours – closer than you yourself keep it. But you cannot trust us to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word. We are your friends, Frodo. Anyway: there it is. We know most of what Gandalf has told you. We know a good deal about the ring. We are horribly afraid-but we are coming with you; or following you like hounds.
A letter always seemed to me like immortality because it is the mind alone without corporeal friend.
