A Bouquet of Quotes




A Special Friend gave me "FRIENDSHIP A Bouquet of Quotes" many years ago.

It's great and I decided to choose a few favorite quotes to pass on, but, there are so many inspiring ones, there was no way to stop with three or four.

"FRIENDSHIP A Bouquet of Quotes" is a Little Big Book because the book itself is very tiny; but, the contents are BIG Wonderful Quotes About Fiendship.

I don't know who compiled the quotes, but I'm sharing them with you. Enjoy!.
