1: I dedicate this book to all my teachers, family, and friends who made this year worthwhile!! Plus my cast-buddies!!
2: My Friend We all need someone To talk to in our life, A friend to whom we run In times of stress or strife A friend who's always there Throughout the years, A friend we know will care And take away our fears. A friend who's always near, Waiting for our call, To wipe away our tears, And lift us when we fall. A loving friend indeed, On whom we can depend To fulfill our every need - Thank you, precious friend ~Sammy Lee Sharp | A Plea For A Friend From dawn to dusk I think of thee, As I feel your sweet spirit come over me. A calming hand, A warming heart, You and I shall never part. Follow me as I kneel to pray, to thank you for my days of praise. To you I owe, my life I lend, for in return I promise a friend. ~Music
3: True Best Friends Like a needle in a haystack, true friends are hard to find. That's why I'm so thankful that I can call you mine. Whenever I need a shoulder you're there to catch my tears. You've kept my many secrets, Throughout the past four years. You've been there through my afflictions, You've witnessed my defeats. I'll remember all the good times, And pray the bad ones don't repeat. With you my heart is honest, but there's one thing I never told you. Thank you for everything you've done There's no one else like you. No one that could ever be a true "best" friend like you! ~Crystal Holtz
4: "Love each other or parish(91)." ~Auden from Tuesdays with Morrie
6: Childhood Friends As childhood friends, we grew up together, Swearing to be friends forever and ever. Sometimes we would argue and fight, Other times we would laugh and stay up all night. We went from playing with games and toys, To talking and dreaming about different boys. My thoughts and feelings, to you I would confide, Never having anything to hide. Friends we do remain, Things changing, and things staying the same. To each other we still listen and share, About each other, we will always care. ~Mindy Carpenter
7: how many questions they can ask him which he finds it hard to answer." ~Alice Wellington Rollins | "The test of a good teacher is not how many questions he can ask his pupils and they can answer readily , but
8: "A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world. " Leo Buscaglia

10: "In fact, the most unusual part of his life was about to unfold(13)." ~Tuesdays with Morrie
