May 8 Quote of the Day`

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art.  It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.
C. S. Lewis

 

For a moment, I wanted to disagree with him. ‘Friendship is unnecessary?!!” How untrue. Without friendship, you lose so much joy in life. Then I understood. As Jesus said that man does not live by bread alone, C.S. Lewis was saying that there were some things that simply weren’t necessary to live but were necessary to have a life. If you can eat and breath, you can be alive even though you have no arms and legs. But if you want to truly live you must have more than air and food.
