A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.
I get by with a little help from my friends.
People won't have time for you if you are always angry or complaining.
Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
To throw away an honest friend is, as it were, to throw your life away
Friendship is like money, easier made than kept.
A friend is one who has the same enemies as you have.
We make our friends; we make our enemies; but God makes our next-door neighbour.
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
The more you let yourself go, the less others let you go.
People are like dirt. They can either nourish you and help you grow as a person or they can stunt your growth and make you wilt and die.
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good.
Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing.
Adversity tests the sincerity of friends.
Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow-ripening fruit.
If you remember me, then I don't care if everyone else forgets.
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.
