"Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down."

I really love this quote! I think that it teaches people that they really need to choose their friends carefully. When your life is going well, many people want to be your friend. They might even want to take advantage of the things you that you happen to be enjoying. A true friend is going to be there in the good times but especially in the bad times. When things are not good, a person needs a friend to rely on. A true friend is going to be there no matter what the circumstance.
