It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day. Dalai Lama
For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict, argument, debate. Margaret Heffernan
I am as bad as the worst, but, thank God, I am as good as the best. Walt Whitman
The one characteristic of authentic power that most people overlook is humbleness. It is important for many reasons. A humble person walks in a friendly world. He or she sees friends everywhere he or she looks, wherever he or she goes, whomever he or she meets. His or her perception goes beyond the shell of appearance and into essence. Gary Zukav
