“Friendship arises … when two or more discover that they have in common some insight or interest.
“As Emerson said, ‘Do you love me?’ Means, ‘Do you see the same truth?’ – or at least, ‘Do you care about the same truth?’ The man who agrees with us that some question, little regarded by others, is of great importance can be our friend.
“That is why those pathetic people who simply “want friends” can never make any. The very condition of having friends is that we should want something else besides friends.”

This weekend I’m looking forward to being a part of Emily’s wedding in Chapel Hill on Saturday, catching up with old roommates and friends, & moving all of Bryan’s furniture in to our new apartment (ha, not my fave part of the weekend, but a necessary one (!).
