The Value of Friendship by @PatriceWilton

Value is a quality that provides worth to people. If you consider your friend a stock, value is the price you’d pay to buy the friendship. The value of friendship is priceless. It’s not something that can be bought or sold but can be given and shared with people who are dear to us. In times of need and celebration, our friends give us a shoulder to cry on and someone to celebrate with.

Friendship

Here are a few of my favorite quotes on friendship. Perhaps you have a few of your own.
  1. The value of friendship is that it is the most beautiful thing in our lives. A good friend may not be the same distance away, but they will always be convenient to reach.
  2. A friend knows all about you and still loves you. A friend thinks you are a good egg even though you are slightly cracked. That’s the value of friendship; thank you for being my friend.
  3. Friends accept each other as they are and delight in each other’s differences. Friendship has no measure or end; it cannot be quantified or reduced, like love. Friends will go through fire for each other; the value of friendship is worth more than gold.
  4. The value of true friendship is a rare and precious thing you can never pay too high a price.
  5. The value of friendship is not only to do things together but to share the happiness you experience. When someone in your life makes you feel that you truly matter, it’s friendship at its best.
  6. Being a good friend is just as important as being a good person. A true friendship is something that everyone needs, and it takes time to build up a strong one.

Take a moment to reflect on all the meaningful friendships you have now and in your past that made a difference in your life. It’s humbling, and I’m ever so grateful for each and every one, even though distance keeps us apart. Cherish those who have enriched your life. It really is the best thing in the world to have wonderful friends.

Living in Florida, I don’t see the miraculous change in the foliage, but I lived the first
thirty years of my life in Vancouver, Canada, and then six years in New Jersey in the
nineties–so it is still very vivid to me. I also just returned from a short trip to Maine
where the leaves were starting to burst with color–a truly beautiful state that was a
pleasant change from the heat and humidity we Floridians experience almost every day!
Enjoy the beautiful photos from wherever you are!
Happy Autumn to all of you.
