Quote - friendship

"A point of view is one's particular angle on the world, one's ways of viewing life that implies a well-considered position on a range of much larger questions than that of the reform of Social Security or the future of NATO. Not everyone has a point of view; one perhaps has to reach a certain maturity to develop one. But those who have reached chronological maturity and still haven't done so are unlikely to make good friends, at least not for people who consider themselves thoughtful"

- Joseph Epstein, in *Friendship: an exposé*
