Fun with Quotes

On my 2012 theme—friendship: 

You can take just about any good quote about friendship and make it better by substitituting the word "friend" with the word "mule" and "friendship" with "muleness." Let's try it! 

"A mule should be one in whose understanding and virtue we can equally confide, and whose opinion we can value at once for its justness and its sincerity." 
Robert Hall

"Muleness can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters (snacks) and phone calls (pats) and small, silly presents every so often—just to save it from drying out completely." 
Pam Brown

A single rose can be my garden . . . a single mule, my world." 
Leo Buscaglia

"Muleness is not something you learn in school, but if you haven't learned the meaning of muleness, you really haven't learned anything." Muhammad Ali

"If it's very painful for you to criticize your mule, you're safe in doing it. But if you take the slightest pleasure in it, that's the time to hold your tongue." 
Alice Duer Miller 

"It is one of the blessings of old mules that you can afford to be stupid with them." 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

"There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true muleness." 
Thomas Aquinas

"Yes'm, old mules is always best, 'less you can catch a new one that's fit to make an old one out of." 
Sarah Orne Jewett
