Three Day Quote Challenge, Day Three

Thank you, thank you Elizabeth from Tea and Paper for inviting me to participate.

I started the venture with something nostalgic from John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

Day Two was something “down home” from Lyle Lovett

Today, I close with my beloved Emerson, and a quote from his Essay on Friendship.

“I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with roughest courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work, but the solidest thing we know.”

Excerpt From: Ralph Waldo Emerson. “Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson.” iBooks.

Enjoy!  I hope you have a beautiful Tuesday.

  1. So true, Wendy. My best friend has been my best friend since I was 7 years old. Nothing can shake the foundation of that friendship. Love that photo! Hummingbirds are long gone from Massachusetts, with the onset of cold weather.

    • That’s how true friendship should be, no fear of being yourself, able to make mistakes, and still count on your friend being there. Truly, that type of friendship is a great gift.

      I was reading some amazing facts on hummingbirds. They are quite migratory. They travel thousands of miles in their little lives.

      Have a wonderful day.

  2. Very strong quote Wendy. I wish I had a good solid friend that fit this image. In a way, I guess I do. One friend from way back when. I met him when I became a Christian. He is a gift. We went about 10 years without seeing each other, and when we met again and talked, it was like nothing had changed.
    Have a great day.

  3. Beautiful picture and quote. If a friendship is real… The idea of what is real brings me back to The Velveteen Rabbit. What made him real? Love. It makes me wonder. If the basis of something (in particular a relationship) is love, will it be more real than if the basis is greed, power, selfishness? In other words, if you have a relationship just for the something you can get out of it, is it a real relationship? I think Emerson would say “no!”

    Thanks again for including me in the challenge. It was fun!
