This makes me think… about the value of good friends — especially in light of eternity.

True friends don’t spend time gazing into each other’s eyes. They may show great tenderness toward each other, but they face in the same direction — toward common projects, interests, goals — above all, toward a common Lord.

–C.S. Lewis
