Last week I was talking with a close friend. As usual, we covered a wide range of subjects. He brought up the subject of Friendship and suggested I write a column about it, telling me:"Friendship is severely underrated, especially among men". A client of mine told me, "Lovers come and go, but friendships last a lot longer. I'd be sunk without my friends."
