A R Ammons Quotes

A true friend is someone who accepts your past, supports your present and encourages your future
When we first met, i had no idea you would be so important to me
Together is my favorite place to be
The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary
And then you meet one person and your life changes forever
If cats could talk, they wouldn't
I told you I'll be ready in FIVE minutes, stop calling me every half hour
Having you in my life made everything better
