The Monday Morning Quote #524

“Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo & withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.”

George Washington to his nephew (Pushrod Washington)

    Have a good day, Alun
