A true friend walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
A good friend helps you move. A true friend helps you hide the bodies.
Both excellent quotes,Michael. I think anyone who has at least one real,true friend is lucky beyond words and I guess we all have our definition of what a true friend is. For me,it's someone to whom there isn't a single thing about my life I couldn't reveal with total honesty,and knowing that there wouldn't be a smidgeon of judgement anywhere.
Marda nailed it pretty well
