Without friends... by Elizabeth Kendall


Available to buy on…

Without friends the world is but a wilderness. There is no man that imparteth his joys to his friends, but he joyeth the more; and no man that imparteth his grieves to his friend, but he grieveth the less. – Francis Bacon

A matted print
Sonder vriende op wie jy kan reken, is ’n mens verskriklik eensaam en die wêreld maar ’n wildernis. Die mens wat sy vreugde met ’n vriend kan deel, verdubbel sy vreugde en hy wat sy smart aan ’n vriend kan toevertou, verminder sy smart.
Francis Bacon.
