Do your duty and a little more and the future will take care of itself. Andrew Carnegie
How does this apply to friendship? Is it staying in touch? Maybe it is checking in when we know a friend is struggling. Being consistent and consistently present? Perhaps a note to ensure someone knows we care.
It is the duty in friendship; that is the mortar keeping it live. The day to day to Carnegie, if speaking about friendship, would mean that the friendship would stay the test of time. Not by doing nothing, but the opposite “duty and a little more”. What is your duty? What is your “little more”?
