From time to time in the years to come, I hope you will be treated unfairly, so that you will come to know the value of justice.  I hope that you will suffer betrayal because that will teach you the importance of loyalty.  Sorry to say, but I hope you will be lonely from time to time so that you don’t take friends for granted.  I wish you bad luck, again, from time to time so that you will be conscious of the role of chance in life and understand that your success is not completely deserved and that the failure of others is not completely deserved either.  And when you lose, as you will from time to time, I hope every now and then, your opponent will gloat over your failure.  It is a way for you to understand the importance of sportsmanship. I hope you’ll be ignored so you know the importance of listening to others, and I hope you will have just enough pain to learn compassion.  Whether I wish these things or not, they’re going to happen.  And whether you benefit from them or not will depend upon your ability to see the message in your misfortunes.
  —   Jonathan Haidt and Gregory Lukianoff

Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain.  It’s not something you learn in school.  But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.

There are no faster or firmer friendships than those formed between people who love the same books.
   ―  Irving Stone
From his book:  “Clarence Darrow for the Defense
[Found on one of the blogs I follow:  http://mylittlebookblog.com/
The specific post is at: http://mylittlebookblog.com/2014/09/26/there-are-no-faster-or-firmer-friendships-than-those-formed-between-people-who-love-the-same-books-%e2%80%95-irving-stone-clarence-darrow-for-the-defense/
Another blog site well worth visiting.  I would only add that this is provided the people have an opportunity to share / communicate their love.  Hence, social networks in general and blogging in particular.  —  KMAB]

A mistress never is nor can be a friend.  While you agree, you are lovers; and when it is over, anything but friends.
