As a weary traveler made his way along a lonely road, he noticed a dry, shriveled leaf in his path. Picking it up, he was amazed at the delightful fragrance it exuded.

“Oh, you poor withered leaf,” he exclaimed, “Where did you get this exquisite perfume?”

“For a long time I have lain in the company of a rose,” was the reply.

“To have a friend, be a friend.”

“He who helps others ascend climbs the highest.”

“The best thing to do behind a person’s back – is pat it!”

“Happiness multiplies by division.”

“Love your neighbors, but don’t pull the fence down.”

“A true friend is someone who knows us – and still likes us.”
