Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
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.
Friendship is love without his wings!
Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow-ripening fruit.
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.

Friendship with oneself is all-important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else.
Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.
The shifts of fortune test the reliability of friends.
Books like friends, should be few and well-chosen.
I love the friends I have gathered together on this thin raft...
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.
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
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.
It is not until you become a mother that your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding.
Children make your life important.
No good friends. No bad friends. Only people you want, need to be with; people who build their houses in your heart.
