"A friendship does not grow up spontaneously.
It must have a good soil in which to take root, good seed
from which to start, and care and cultivation in order to become its best.
The good soil is sincerity and truth, coupled with kindness and affection.
The good seed is love and apprectiation.
And it must be watched closely that no weeds of jealousy or envy creep in,
and the soil must be constantly stirred by kind acts, words
of appreciation and affection, and mutual admiration.
There dare be no selfish interests nor evil suspicions in true friendship.
The smallest bit of mistrust will blight it like frost.
Friendship is tnder, but beautiful."
