Garden in the sky

"Silently, one by one,
in the infinite meadows of heaven,
blossomed the lovely stars,
forget-me-nots of the angels."

--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


A friend is another self,
as though a part of me I put aside,
almost forgotten,
was suddenly recalled.
And, the missing piece replaced,
I am whole once more.


"The friendship that can cease has never been real."

--Saint Jerome

God's Favor

"What a great favor God does to those He places in the company of good people!"

-Saint Teresa of Avila


"Friendship is the source of the greatest pleasures, and without friends even the most agreeable pursuits become tedious."

--Saint Thomas Aquinas
