The relationship between husband and wife should be one of closest friends.
People won't have time for you if you are always angry or complaining.
A friend to all is a friend to none.
No good friends. No bad friends. Only people you want, need to be with; people who build their houses in your heart.
Friends and acquaintances are the surest passport to fortune.
A new acquaintance is like a new book. I prefer it, even if bad, to a classic.
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 get by with a little help from my friends.
Friendship was given by nature to be an assistant to virtue, not a companion in vice.
The family is one of nature's masterpieces.

As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.
Be slow to fall into friendship, but when you are in, continue firm and constant.
Betray a friend, and you'll often find you have ruined yourself.
It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.
If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever.
