”It is the friends you can call at 4 am that matter.”
- Marlene Dietrich
This well-known and oft-repeated quote has long been a personal favorite. Because my friends can (and some do) call me at 4am. And instead of making me grumpy, it makes me feel loved and trusted. It’s my litmus test for who I feel closest to - I am closest to the people I would not hesitate to call at 4am if I needed them.
