Books like friends, should be few and well-chosen.
Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
We should behave to our friends as we would wish our friends to behave to us.
Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
There is no friend as loyal as a book.
Our most intimate friend is not he to whom we show the worst, but the best of our nature.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.
A friend is one who has the same enemies as you have.
What was more, they had taken the first step toward genuine friendship. They had exchanged vulnerabilities.
Constant use had not worn ragged the fabric of their friendship.
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.
Real friends stab you in the front.
No one who can read, ever looks at a book, even unopened on a shelf, like one who cannot.
Rashness is the faithful, but unhappy parent of misfortune.
So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good.
You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
A blow from your friend is better than a kiss from your enemy.
As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.
Friends are nothing but a known enemy
The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.
