Loyalty is what we seek in friendship.
Our most intimate friend is not he to whom we show the worst, but the best of our nature.
It is not until you become a mother that your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding.
Books like friends, should be few and well-chosen.
In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
Everyone wants to ride with you in the limo but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.
A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
You are my best friend as well as my lover, and I do not know which side of you I enjoy the most. I treasure each side, just as I have treasured our life together.
If you have a candle, the light won't glow any dimmer if I light yours off of mine.
Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing.
Anybody amuses me for once. A new acquaintance is like a new book. I prefer it, even if bad, to a classic.
I love the friends I have gathered together on this thin raft...
Betray a friend, and you'll often find you have ruined yourself.
You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
Be slow to fall into friendship, but when you are in, continue firm and constant.
Friendship is love without his wings!
Man's best support is a very dear friend.
Friends are nothing but a known enemy
Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow-ripening fruit.
