Quote #5 – Friendship

This quote has meaning for me, particularly in reference to one of my best friends.  Two years ago within an hour of this post he shared this with me:

“A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter; he who finds one finds a treasure. A faithful friend is beyond price, no sum can balance his worth.A faithful friend is a life-saving remedy, such as he who fears God finds; For he who fears God behaves accordingly, and his friend will be like himself.” – Sirach 6: 14-17

The source is biblical.  While not from a Jewish bible, it is certainly relevant and applicable. 🙂
