    Friends help us see ourselves

    The brevity of life gives a subconscious urgency to our desire to know ourselves. Dostoyevsky said that one of the greatest tragedies is that so many people live their lives without ever finding themselves in themselves. Perhaps this is what a friendship gives us. The real mirror of your life and soul is your true friend. A friend helps you to glimpse who you really are and what you are doing here.

    John O’Donohue (1954-2008), Irish Catholic scholar, poet and philosopher. “Soul to Soul,” Lapis issue #4, as adapted in Utne Reader, November-December, 1997.
