routines and reflexes

«Of course a friendship is not constructed out of shared beliefs and values but out of easy, almost unconscious routines and reflexes - the habits of a lifetime together, not the sharp disagreements of the moment. Even the same old arguments about the same old things (lateness, health, too many social engagements) can be the reassuring noise that invariably accompanies the familiar sign of friendly love.»
