A friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of nature.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.
Friendship with oneself is all-important because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.
Thy friendship oft has made my heart to ache; do be my enemy-- for friendship's sake.
True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.
Be slow to fall into friendship; but when thou art in, continue firm and constant.
Friendship is love with wings.
Friendship is the bridge between lonely and loved, between a glance and a gaze. It stretches from the fog into sunshine, hopelessness into faith, between despair and joy. It crosses the chasm from hell to heaven, from God to man, and from you to me.
Lone travellers like you and me on the roadway meet, only to meet and depart. Oh! let us learn to build the bridge of faith between our hearts, flows under which a stream, a stream full of our tears of the moments, of togetherness, of departedness. Oh! even if some external evil breaks our bridge of faith, let not even the mighty sun dry our tears, our stream of joy and sorrow. I do not expect a permanent friendship but at least remember me, not praise me unto my death. For, when death befalls people tend to praise, glorify the evil. But let me die a death simply, satisfactorily,happily remembering You only You.
He who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare, while he who has one enemy shall meet him everywhere.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Good friends have a way of bringing out the best in you
By their caring and the interest that they take in all you do.
My friends are my estate.
Friends are made by many acts
... and lost by only one.
Have no friends not equal to yourself.
I don't trust him. We're friends. Bertolt Brecht
Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.
You can make more friends in a month by being interested in them than in ten years by trying to get them interested in you.
Charles A. Allen
A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they're not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they're not so bad.
No person is your friend
who demands your silence,
or denies your right to grow.
In giving advice, seek to help,
not please, your friend.
We never need to change friends,
as long as we understand that friends change.
Reprove your friend privately,
commend him publicly.
A real friend is one who walks in
when the rest of the world walks out.
Friends are those rare people who ask how we are
and then wait to hear the answer.
We all take different paths in life,
but no matter where we go,
we take a little of each other everywhere.
A true friend stabs you in the front.
Do what you want,
and say what you feel,
because those who matter don't mind,
and those who mind, don't matter.
Nobody is worth your tears,
and if you find somebody who is,
he won't make you cry.
