“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly:
and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”(Proverbs 18:24)
How do you describe a friend? There never seems to be a word, or words, big enough. It’s just too big a subject to use words already written, sung or spoken. I will ask largely for a new word.
I have a friend who sticketh closer than a brother You ask who that may be I say He is like no other His name above all names too holy to pronounce I just call him Jesus He's been my friend Since I was but a child
“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art … It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”C.S. Lewis
“I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don’t believe I deserved my friends.”Walt Whitman
