Every person, all the events of your life, are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.
Your friends will know you better in the first minute you meet than your acquaintances will know you in a thousand years.
Don't be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.
