My favorite quotes these past few days.

"We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.
~ Joseph Roux

"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. "
~ Henri Nouwen

"When a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it. "
~ Edward W. Howe

"When a woman like that whom I've seen so much, All of a sudden drops out of touch; Is always busy and never can, Spare you a moment, it means a man. "
~ Alice Duer Miller
