My best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake.
A new acquaintance is like a new book. I prefer it, even if bad, to a classic.
Children make your life important.
Friends are nothing but a known enemy
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.
The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home.
Between friends there is no need of justice.
No good friends. No bad friends. Only people you want, need to be with; people who build their houses in your heart.
We make our friends; we make our enemies; but God makes our next-door neighbour.
Friendship is like money, easier made than kept.
If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever.
Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity
Friendship was given by nature to be an assistant to virtue, not a companion in vice.
Our most intimate friend is not he to whom we show the worst, but the best of our nature.
Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
The shifts of fortune test the reliability of friends.
Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.
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.
You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
Sometimes we owe a friend to the lucky circumstance that we give him no cause for envy.
A friend is, as it were, a second self.
