Quote by Lyle Lovett
You don't have to have anything in common with people you've known since you were five. With old friends, you've got your whole life in common.
This quote emphasizes that the depth and longevity of a friendship are not solely determined by shared interests or commonalities. It suggests that while it may be possible to cultivate friendships based on similar backgrounds or hobbies, true and lasting connections are forged through the experiences and memories shared over time. It implies that old friends with whom you have grown up have a unique bond, as they have witnessed the evolution of your life and have been a part of it, making the relationship more meaningful and enduring.

Conveyances and motives, both conventional and bizarre, have been provided. And, according to plan, at each appointed second, at each appointed place this Jonah was there.
