Emily Bronte

Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?

The wild-rose briar is sweet in the spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?

Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly’s sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He may still leave thy garland green.

It is possible to love after friendship.. but friendship is NOT possible after love. How can I be friends with someone I have so much love for?

Give her two red roses, each with a note. The first note says For the woman I love and the second, For my best friend.

Richard Bach

Can miles truly separate you from friends… If you want to be with someone you love, aren’t you already there?
