Do fundraisers have friends?

true datI have frequently joked with my peers that we no longer have any friends because the world is divided into peers, prospects and donors. For example, none of my high school friends answer my calls anymore since I volunteer to lead the school's alumni fundraising efforts for my class!

These quotes, courtesy of AFP Dallas, brought me some hope....

"Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty."
- Sicilian Proverb

"The friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you." - Elbert Hubbard, The Notebook, 1927

"A good friend is cheaper than therapy." - Author Unknown

"A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails." - Donna Roberts

"You can always tell a real friend: when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job."
- Laurence J. Peter

"Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait for the answer." - Author Unknown

"There are big ships and small ships. But the best ship of all is friendship." - Author Unknown

"A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you are half-cracked." - Author Unknown
