One of the Severest Tests of Friendship

Today is the birthday of Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887), the US Congregational preacher, orator, and lecturer who said, among other things:
It is one of the severest tests of friendship to tell your friend his faults. So to love a man that you cannot bear to see a stain upon him, and to speak painful truth through loving words, that is friendship.
    And that, in some way, is what this blog is all about… N'est-ce pas?
