Example Of True Friendship

The following quote from Mrs. Craik's book "Life for a Life" , illustrates the lifelong friendship between J. Frank Norris and Dr. Louis Entzminger. 

"Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weight thoughts nor measure words, but pour them all right out just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away!"

Dr. Entzminger was often needled by friends as to why he chose to play second fiddle to Dr. Norris.  His reply: "It takes a pretty good fiddle to play second fiddle" to J. Frank Norris.
