Lifelong Friends . . . C. S. Lewis

In "The Problem of Pain" C. S. Lewis offers this beautiful thought:
Are not all lifelong friendships born at the moment when at last you meet another human being who has some inkling (but faint and uncertain even in the best) of that something which you were born desiring, and which, beneath the flux of other desires and in all the momentary silences between the louder passions, night and day, year by year, from childhood to old age, you are looking for, watching for, listening for?

That is a wonderful quote. In a nutshell it describes the grace of true intimacy. . .a rare find these days.
