I love the friends I have gathered together on this thin raft...
You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
One who knows how to show and to accept kindness will be a friend better than any possession.
A blow from your friend is better than a kiss from your enemy.
Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Friendship is nothing else than an accord in all things, human and divine, conjoined with mutual goodwill and affection.
I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don't believe I deserved my friends.
A friend to all is a friend to none.
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.
Marriage has no guarantees. If that's what you're looking for, go live with a car battery.
A good friend will always stab you in the front.
The majority of people permit relatives, friends, and the public at large to so influence them that they cannot live their own lives, because they fear criticism.
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 best kind of friend is the kind you sit with, never say a word and walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you ever had.
Constant use had not worn ragged the fabric of their friendship.
If you have a candle, the light won't glow any dimmer if I light yours off of mine.
Few friendships would survive if each one knew what his friend says of him behind his back
Adversity tests the sincerity of friends.
My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.
We make our friends; we make our enemies; but God makes our next-door neighbour.
