1: I dedicate this to all of my friends that have been there for me over the years. The friends who have come and gone, who have stayed, the old, and the new.

5: Perfect Blend She's a: Sadness safe-cracker, A down-in-the-dumps hijacker. A deepest secret keeper, A talk-for-hours non-sleeper. An automatic advice dispenser, A future candidate for Mensa. An Olympic-qualifying talker, A hold-head-high-whatever walker. A listener to all my woes, A fear-of-God to all my foes. | A promise fulfiller, gossip killer, Dance-all-nighter, tiredness fighter, Solid shoulder for things I've told her. She's my: Round the bend, got to spend Quick to lend, own trend Perfect blend Best friend (what would I do without her?) - Andrew Fusek Peters & Polly Peters

7: " I actually wanted to talk to Garrett. I mean, he was my friend, and a lot had happened in the last couple of months that was weighing on me.

10: Poem for Two Voices Speaker One Did you ever have a friend, a very best friend, Who knows exactly how Speaker Two Your sentences will end? And the two of you share some goofy, silly jokes (That don't make any sense to other folks), But both of you start laughing so hard you almost cry, While other people say, "What's so funny, you guys?" "What's so funny, you guys?"
11: Speaker One Did you ever have a friend - you just give her a look, Speaker Two And she knows what you are thinking like it's written in a book. You say to her, "Remember. . .?" And she says, "I totally do." Did you ever have a friend like that? I do. Me, too. - Carol Diggory Shields
18: "I'd never felt this way before. Ever. And just admitting it to myself instead of hiding from it made me feel strong. Happy." (-Bryce Pg. 185)
19: "All I know is that compared to her, Shelly and Miranda seemed so. . . ordinary." (-Bryce Pg. 185)
21: - Edna St. Vincent Millay | Pretty Love, I must outlive you; And my little dog Llewelyn, Dreaming here with treble whimpers, Jerking paws and twitching nostrils On the hearth-rug, will outlive you, If no trap or shot-gun gets him. Parrots, tortoises and redwoods Live a longer life than men do, Men a longer life than dogs do, Dogs a longer life than love does. What a fool I was to take you, Pretty Love, into my household, Shape my days and nights to charm you, Center all my hopes about you, Knowing well I must outlive you, If no trap or shot-gun gets me.
22: Through Thick and Thin Everybody makes mistakes. But I know when you, or I do, all is forgiven. Forgive and forget, I'll always be here for you, even when things get tough. _- Janna Barney
25: "Fame is the scentless sunflower, with gaudy crown of gold, but friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold." - Olivier Wendell Holmes
