Anybody amuses me for once. A new acquaintance is like a new book. I prefer it, even if bad, to a classic.
Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
Misfortune shows those who are not really friends.
It is not until you become a mother that your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding.
There is no friend as loyal as a book.
Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.
Friends are nothing but a known enemy
Friends are God's way of apologizing for your family.
If you go out looking for friends, you're going to find they are very scarce. If you go out to be a friend, you'll find them everywhere.
A friend is one before whom I may think aloud.
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
The family is one of nature's masterpieces.
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
I get by with a little help from my friends.
Friendship is like money, easier made than kept.
Loyalty is what we seek in friendship.
Real friends stab you in the front.
Shared joys make a friend, not shared sufferings.
As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.
A blow from your friend is better than a kiss from your enemy.
To throw away an honest friend is, as it were, to throw your life away
