Here’s what OHC has to say about Friendship

Casual or intense, our friendships hold the power to enrich and sustain us.

Casual or intense, our friendships hold the power to enrich and sustain us. In them we discover, express, and measure ourselves; through them we grow. Yet these seemingly familiar relationships remain complex and various, opening to us a range of discoveries that carry us between solitude and communion–between aloneness and a sharing of self with others. For some people, perhaps more for men than for women, friendship is a matter of shared activity–a golf game, a theater outing. For some, it resides in fascination with what is different from oneself, while for others it thrives on shared interests and potentialities.

What does friendship mean to you? What is your favorite book on friendship?
