A Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes on fame, friendship, gold, praise, and sharing

There is no friend like the old friend who has shared our morning days, No greeting like his welcome, no homage like his praise; Fame is the scentless sunflower, with gaudy crown of gold; But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold.

Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809 - 1894)
