“Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends, for it is one of God's best gifts. It involves many things, but above all, the power of going out of one's self and appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another.”
Thomas Hughes

“I want to leave behind me the name of a fellow who never bullied a little boy, or turned his back on a big one.”
Thomas Hughes, Tom Brown's Schooldays
