Quotable: On Friendship, Love, and Truth

“Quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson, in an essay on friendship, C.S. Lewis noted that Emerson once observed: ‘Do you love me?’ means, ‘Do you see the same truth?;’ or at least, Lewis wrote, ‘Do you care about the same truth?’…A friendship like Roosevelt and Churchill’s is rightly understood as a fond relationship in which two people have an interest not just in each other, though they do, but also, as Emerson saw, in a shared external truth or mission.”

– Jon Meacham, in Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship
