If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world, and that his heart is no island cut off from other lands, but a continent that joins to them. - Francis Bacon

Comedy is an escape, not from truth but from despair; a narrow escape into faith. - Christopher Fry

Friends and Partners was created primarily to help people in our countries find, communicate with and learn from each other. Thus, this Community Corner - with its email, bulletin board, and chat services - is its real "heart".
