There is special value in the friend who has been companion through it all from the beginning. 

What takes up the mind and thoughts and affections makes a difference for prosperity, and for posterity.

My experience says that most humans are ambivalent, mixed-motive, complex beings. Our language is ambiguous, imprecise, and twistable. Real communication requires attention. 

There are some things a person says for the sole purpose to bring joy to someone else.
