More From Herman Melville

- "We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men."
More In Friendship
- "Accountability in friendship is the equivalent of love without strategy."― Anita Brookner
- "True happiness arises, in the first place, from the enjoyment of one’s self, and in the next, from the friendship and conversation of a few select companions."― Joseph Addison
- "My parents, and librarians along the way, taught me about the space between words; about the margins, where so many juicy moments of life and spirit and friendship could be found. In a library, you could find miracles and truth and you might find something that would make you laugh so hard that you get shushed, in the friendliest way."― Anne Lamott
