Quotes about Edgar Guest: The Making of Friends Life is sweet because of the friends we have made And the things which in common we share; We want to live on, not because of ourselves, But because of the ones who would care. It's living and doing for somebody else On that all of life's splendor depends, And the joy of it all, when we count it all up, Is found in the making of friends....

Edgar Guest Saying: Along a stream that raced and ranThrough tangled trees and over stones,That long had heard the pipes o' PanAnd shared the joys that nature owns,I met a fellow fisherman,Who greeted me in cheerful tones.. . . .Foes think the bad in him they've guessedAnd prate about the wrong they scan;Friends that have seen him at his bestBelieve they know his every plan;I know him better than the rest,I know him as a fisherman.

Edgar Guest Quote: There's nothing that builds up a toil-weary soulLike a day on a stream,Back on the banks of the old fishing holeWhere a fellow can dream.There's nothing so good for a man as to fleeFrom the city and lieFull length in the shade of a whispering treeAnd gaze at the sky.. . . .It is good for the world that men hunger to goTo the banks of a stream,And weary of sham and of pomp and of showThey have somewhere to dream.For this life would be dreary and sordid and baseDid they not now and thenSeek refreshment and calm in God's wide, open spaceAnd come back to be men.
