Friendship Information

"Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend."

Tom, here's some back ground on this saying:

One web site attributes the saying to the Utes: "Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Walk beside me that we may be as one." http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Native_American_proverbs

Another claims it's from a Jewish song: “Don’t walk in front of me, since I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, since I may not lead. Walk besides me as my friend...." http://www.vrg.org/journal/vj2004issue1/vj2004issue1notecoord.htm

A third web site attributes it to Albert Camus: "Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend." http://www.jimpoz.com/quotes/category.asp?categoryid=7.
