Care of the Soul Resources

“We are all made up of many worlds and each friendship brings one or more of those worlds to life. One shares with a friend a unique way of looking at life and experiencing it, and so our friendships perform a kind of astrology of the soul, opening planetary worlds for us, to give our lives culture and meaning. To lose a friend is to suffer the loss of worlds.”
– Thomas Moore
