The friends that we have lost do not repose in the bosom of the earth, but are buried deep in our hearts.
A friend is someone who inspires, who challenges, who sends you in search of some truer sense of yourself.
Some people need a red carpet rolled out in front of them in order to walk forward into friendship. They can`t see the tiny outstretched hands all around them, everywhere, like leaves on trees.
So when you`re cold
From the inside out
And don`t know what to do,
Remember love and friendship,
And warmth will come to you.
A good friend keeps your secrets for you. A best friend helps you keep your own secrets.
It takes your enemy and your friend, working together, to hurt you to the heart: the one to slander you and the other to get the news to you.
Words are easy, like the wind;
Faithful friends are hard to find.
Good books, like good friends, are few and chosen; the more select, the more enjoyable.
A good friend is a connection to life - a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world.
A real friend isn`t capable of feeling sorry for you.
Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.
Friendship with oneself is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.
