“Real friendship or love

is not manufactured

or achieved by an act

of will or intention.

Friendship is always

an act of recognition.”


~ John O’Donohue


You may not always be able to put your finger

on the exact thing that draws you to a friend

but you can always recognize the good feeling

when the friend says hello.

Friendship and love cannot be forced,

you cannot will yourself to like someone

who cannot give you those good feelings.

Today, feel good, be a friend.

Friendship is an act of recognition.

Friendship is a priceless gem

that is to be valued and protected.
