On Good Companions

Tuesday, September 29, 2020

" So long as we love, we serve; so long as we are served by others, I should say that we are almost indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend" Robert Louis Stevenson The above words emphasis the greatest things man has in life---love and friendship. They have long been an inspiration to me on cloudy days of spiritual depression. It is good to be reminded of the fact that we are needed by our fellows; that we are more than brothers to the ox, that we are truly of some importance, however small, in a struggling world. It is something to live for others instead of only for ourselves. Indeed, we do not really live unless we have friends surrounding us like a firm wall against the winds of the world. By Charles Hanson Towne These words were given to me by my father Joe. He wanted me to understand lives meaning more deeply than I did as a child. I thank for this precious book given to me 50 years ago. RIP
