A Quote by Thomas Moore on friends, friendship, loss, and abandonment

Pythagoras asks that we not let a friend go lightly, for whatever reason.  Instead, we should stay with a friend as long as we can, until we're compelled to abandon him completely against our will.  It's a serious thing to toss away money, but to cast aside a person is even more serious.  Nothing in human life is more rarely found, nothing more dearly possessed.  No loss is more chilling or more dangerous than that of a friend.

Thomas Moore (1779 - 1852)
