What can you add to this list?

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,
nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Also, I can't forget that it's Veterans Day.

My fellow Americans,
ask not what your country can do for you;
ask what you can do for your country.
- John F. Kennedy
