Lewis qoute on friendship

Lewis qoute on friendship

Postby nathan » 27 Jul 2004, 22:25

Hi. I am looking for a qoute by Lewis on freindship. I remeber reading it but cannot remeber what book it is from. THus is the perils of reading so much Lewis so often. ANyways it is something along the lines of how true friendships are formed when two find each other who have shared something that has deeply inhabited each's soul. I apologize for my version. I'm trying best i can to remeber it. If anyone knows the qoute could you please post it. Thanks muchly - Stay Happy - Nathan

Hi, Nathan,

C. S. Lewis wrote:Friendship arises out of mere Companionship when two or more of the companions discover that they have in common some insight or interest or even taste which the others do not share and which, till that moment, each believed to be his own unique treasure (or burden). The typical expression of opening Friendship would be something like, "What? You too? I thought I was the only one."
The Four Loves, chapter four

Hope this helps.

Rat! he found breath to whisper, shaking. Are you afraid?
Afraid? murmured the Rat, his eyes shining with unutterable love.
Afraid! Of Him? O, never, never! And yet -- and yet -- O, Mole, I am afraid!
Then the two animals, crouching to the earth, bowed their heads and did worship.
