"There are secrets in the earth and in the soil of the heart, that only love and friendship can reveal to us. They are both shovels that dig deep into the world and pull out the things of most incredible value."
"Let your closest friends, those who are your confidants, be like both lanterns and like mirrors. Let them like lanterns, when the darkness of night overwhelms you, they will shine a way where once there was none. Let them be like mirrors. When the glare of daylight steals your sight, they will bring clarity before your eyes."
