Making and keeping friends

From the May 2, 2016 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


The frontispiece of Mary Baker Eddy’s Miscellaneous Writings  1883–1896 quotes 17th-century poet Ben Jonson: When I would know thee … my thought looks Upon thy well made choice of friends and books; Then do I love thee, and behold thy ends In making thy friends books, and thy books friends. Epigram 86 One of the most important choices in life is the books we make our friends.
