A true friend is one who overlooks your failures and tolerates your success!
It is more shameful to distrust our friends than to be deceived by them.
I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
Each friend represents a world in us, a world not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good.
Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?
It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing… not healing, not curing… that is a friend who cares.
Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
A friend to all is a friend to none.
Friendship… is not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.
A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.
