Friendship is the greatest of worldly goods. Certainly to me it is the chief happiness of life. If I had to give a piece of advice to a young man about a place to live, I think I should say, ‘sacrifice almost everything to live where you can be near your friends.’
C.S. Lewis, The Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis, Volume 2 (via settledthingsstrange)
I need to remind myself of this; it is good and true.
