Friendship is an experience everyone enjoys to some degree. The memory of a friendship includes gratitude for moments shared, feelings understood, anxieties lifted. And a feeling of self-worth is involved, knowing that something of oneself was given and found valuable by a friend.

Readings and poems by such noted writers as Ralph Waldo Emerson help readers examine friendship from many angles, including these:

  • What Is Friendship?
  • Searching for Friendship
  • The Value of Friendship
  • Friendship--Is It Love?
  • The Experience of Friendship

Originally published in 1971, Friendship is seen as a mind-blower, a fresh wind on the spirit, a glory in life--in other words, a necessity, as C. S. Lewis writes, not in order to live, but to make living worthwhile.
