Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.
Age appears to be best in four things; old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.

I've always been the type of person that has told friends, if they're going through a rough time, I'm always there to talk to.
It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.
