all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant
of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation."
-George Washington (1732 - 1799)
"A lie can travel
halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes
