Thought for the Day

A FRIEND

“There is no friend like an old friend
Who has shared our morning days,
No greeting like his welcome,
No homage like his praise.
Fame is the scentless sunflower,
With gaudy crown of gold;
But friendship is the breathing rose,
With sweets in every fold.”

~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
(1809-1894)
