Aristotle said that wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow-ripening fruit. Friends are easy to find; good friends are harder to find, and best friend… well a best friend is not someone that you can just go out and find. It’s the result of the fermentation of many years of friendship with deep understanding and mutual support.
