Quotations On Friendship–In Memory of My Departed Friend and Brother, Neil A. Frederick


This post is dedicated to the memory of my true friend and brother, Neil A. Frederick. May you rest in peace.



“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.”

                                                                          Helen Keller



“Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart.”

                                                                         Washington Irving



“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, for in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”

                                                                          Khalil Gibran


“True friendship is one of the most valuable treasures of life, not in the way of worldly goods, but for our souls, our spirits, and our beings. True friendship brings its own kind of love and the ability to be oneself with that other person.”

                                                                        Charles F. French

  1. My condolences, sympathy and empathy sent to you, upon your loss – losses happen every day, but oh! how many more of them each of us have had to ‘weather, find the grace’ within, this year. I often get lost in ‘modern speed-of-light’ advanced culture and events – but oh – even while my heart aches for you to read this – their is a portion of my heart that cheers you on – Way to FIND the silver lining in the dark cloud that just moved into your life!! ❤ and hugs to you and yours and all who loved the gifts Neil bestowed upon others during his time here.

  2. There was a quote I read a long time ago that stuck with me… yet I cannot find it now. It was something like “I am not sad; I am mutilated…for you were a part of me.”

    Alas I have too often come to know what those words mean.

    A wonderful tribute, Professor…
