Good Morning Friends & Digital Neighbors! A few quotes on friendship from Forbes' Book of Quotations. Such a good book, I have a entire shelf of assort books of quotations, proverbs and other pithy things humans have said. I have television and the internet for the less quote worthy things humanity has said. On to the quotes & babble!😊
The influence of each human being on others in this life is a kind of immortality. - John Quincy Adams
I occasionally wonder how much time will pass before I am forgotten after I die. How many years will pass when the last relative or friend of memory passes on and my memories fade with them. It is a sobering and humble thought that 99.99999999% of humanity passes into obscurity, only the extreme get remembered and that is not even a guarantee if there is collapse of society, many notables of the ancient world will never be known to us because of lost history. However something you said or did that conveyed your attitude of goodness and humanity may live for many generations as it is taught to those receive the lesson without knowing the teacher. I wonder what bits of wisdom or positive traits of attitude my great, great, great grandparents passed on to me without knowing their names or anything about their lives. It is perhaps one of the most selfless acts one is capable of since we can give without knowing and one can receive without knowing the giver.
A friend is one who sees through you and still enjoys the view. - Wilma Askinas
Warts and all. Now you can't be anything but warts, but good friends can see the mix in us and work to emphasize what is good and help us smooth out those rough edges. It is a strange dance of acceptance and growth.
What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other. - George Eliot
Everyone is fighting a battle - be kind. I like George's quote and wish more people thought that way. Too many dwellers in the mind of misery want to share that with others rather than find a path out of their misery. Helping people out of their misery is one of the reasons I am a shepherd of souls. While it is the love and friendship with the Master that matters most, to relate to the world as I believe He does is one of my constant goals and prayers. Enough for a Wednesday. Have a great day my friends.
Meanwhile in Alberta, Canada is this wonderful old barn. If it could talk, what stories would it tell?

Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge. Since this changed has happened, I want all of you to know that any funds that come as a result of this community will be given to charity. I came here for community - not for profit.
The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
