The happiest business in all the world is that of making friends,And no investment on the street pays larger dividends,For life is more than stocks and bonds, and love than rate percent,And he who gives in friendships name shall reap what he has spent.
ANNE S. EATON, The Business of Friendship, lines 14.Seth Parker, Fireside Poems, p. 34 (1933).
