Friendship

Many things have been written about the qualities of friendship, but I think that this Arab proverb expresses the meaning of the word as well as anyone could:-

“A friend is someone ro whom you can pour out the contents of your heart, grain and chaff together, knowing that the gentl3st of hands will sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.”

Next time I hear the expression, “the wisdom of the East”, I shall remember this proverb.

With many peaceful blessings

Geoffrey
