This Q was all about keeping the PAX together and charging up the hill side by side.  I was trying to relate this to friendship and keeping your friends close.

Like the Stone of Wisdom, friendship may be lying right in your back yard and you may never know it.  Your best friend may be a stranger to you, or you may lose him because you didn’t bother to hold him.  Friends must be cultivated by sincerity, frankness, and deeds of affection.  No one can remain your friend if you hide your soul from him.  You needn’t save face before your friend.  Your friend will save it for you.

Life is a chain of little events.  Close your soul to your friend, and he will lose sight of you.  And if you find your friend, give of your friendship and it will return to you tenfold.  Those who cannot give friendship will rarely receive it and never hold it.                             -Dagobert D. Runes


Go often to the house of thy friend, for weeds choke the unused path.     -Ralph Waldo Emerson
