“Things change. And friends leave. Life doesn’t stop for anybody.” ~Stephen Chobsky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The gulf between a stranger becoming a friend is usually crossed by a kind word, a handshake, or an arm around the shoulder.
“Silence accompanies the most significant expressions of happiness and unhappiness…” ~Anton Chekhov
