But I think Mr. Knapp might have said something worth listening
to. We need friends, no matter where we find them.
And do you know who your best friend is? Automaker Henry Ford was
having lunch with a man, when he suddenly asked the man that very
question. "Who is your best friend?" Ford asked.
The man hesitated and Ford went on. "I'll tell you who your best

within you." Our best friends are those who do more than simply
like us. They also believe in us. They support us but,
occasionally, they nudge us as well.
Someone put it well: "A friend is someone who knows you as you
are, understands where you've been, accepts who you've become,
and still, gently invites you to grow."
Now...who is your best friend?
