A friend is someone with whom you dare to be yourself.
Best Quotes about Friends and friendship
Show me a genuine case of platonic friendship, and I shall show you two old or homely faces.
A friend is someone with whom you dare to be yourself.
Friends, both the imaginary ones you build for yourself out of phrases taken from a living writer, or real ones from college, and relatives, despite all the waste of ceremony and fakery and the fact that out of an hour of conversation you may have only five minutes in which the old entente reappears, are the only real means for foreign ideas to enter your brain.
If you have no friends to share or rejoice in your success in life -- if you cannot look back to those whom you owe gratitude, or forward to those to whom you ought to afford protection, still it is no less incumbent on you to move steadily in the path of duty; for your active excretions are due not only to society; but in humble gratitude to the Being who made you a member of it, with powers to save yourself and others.
Scott, Sir Walter
In America every woman has her set of girl-friends; some are cousins, the rest are gained at school. These form a permanent committee who sit on each other's affairs, who come out together, marry and divorce together, and who end as those groups of bustling, heartless well-informed club-women who govern society. Against them the Couple of Ehepaar is helpless and Man in their eyes but a biological interlude.
Friendships that have stood the test of time and chance are surely best, Brows may wrinkle, hair grow gray, Friendship never knows decay.
Friendship is to have the latchkey of another's mind.
... I remember you and recall you without effort, without exercise of will; that is, by natural impulse, indicated by a sense of duty, or of obligation. And that, I take it, is the only sort of remembering worth the having. When we think of friends, and call their faces out of the shadows, and their voices out of the echoes that faint along the corridors of memory, and do it without knowing why save that we love to do it, we content ourselves that friendship is a Reality, and not a Fancy -- that it is built upon a rock, and not upon the sands that dissolve away with the ebbing tides and carry their monuments with them.
A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.
Friendship is a disinterested commerce between equals; love, an abject intercourse between tyrants and slaves.
And what a delight it is to make friends with someone you have despised.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Friendship Never explain -- your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe it anyway. A real friend never gets in your way, unless you happen to be on the way down. A friend is someone you can do nothing with and enjoy it. However much we guard ourselves against it, we tend to shape ourselves in the image others have of us. It is not so much the example of others we imitate, as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.
One of the surest evidences of friendship that one individual can display to another is telling him gently of a fault. If any other can excel it, it is listening to such a disclosure with gratitude, and amending the error.
Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
Friendship is the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person having neither to weigh thoughts or measure words, but pouring all right out just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful friendly hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping and, with a breath of comfort, blow the rest away.
Craik, Dinah Mulock
Your friend is that man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
The world is round so that friendship may encircle it.
Chardin, Pierre Teilhard De
If you go looking for a friend, you're going to find they're very scarce. If you go out to be a friend, you'll find them everywhere.
He whose hand is clasped in friendship cannot throw mud.
Friendship is one mind in two bodies.
Mencius (Mengzi Meng-tse)
As the yellow gold is tried in fire, so the faith of friendship must be seen in adversity.
The proper office of a friend is to side with you when you are in the wrong. Nearly anybody will side with you when you are in the right.
There is no friend as loyal as a book
Money can't buy you friends; but you do get a better class of enemies.
Without friends, no one would want to live, even if he had all other goods.
Give me work to do, Give me health, Give me joy in simple things, Give me an eye for beauty, A tongue for truth, A heart that loves, A mind that reasons, A sympathy that understands. Give me neither malice nor envy, But a true kindness And a noble common sense. At the close of each day Give me a book And a friend with whom I can be silent.
Frazier, S. M.
My father always used to say that when you die, if you've got five real friends, then you've had a great life.
A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil -- but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small silly presents every so often -- just to save it from drying out completely
A sympathetic friend can be quite as dear as a brother.
These can never be true friends: Hope, dice, a prostitute, a robber, a cheat, a goldsmith, a monkey, a doctor, a distiller.
Faithful friends are gifts from heaven: Whoever finds one has found a treasure.
Man strives for glory, honor, fame, so that all the world may know his name. Amasses wealth by brain and hand. Becomes a power in the land. But when he nears the end of life and looks back over the years of strife. He finds that happiness depends on none of these but love of friends.
Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.
It can never be bought or borrowed or sold A gift to be cherished, True friendship is a treasure beyond compare.
Friendship's the privilege of private men; for wretched greatness knows no blessing so substantial.
Friendship is but another name for an alliance with the follies and the misfortunes of others. Our own share of miseries is sufficient: why enter then as volunteers into those of another?
My friends, there are no friends.
Instead of loving your enemies -- treat your friends a little better.
Howe, Edgar Watson
I do then with my friends as I do with my books. I would have them where I can find them, but I seldom use them.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.
Friendship is a sheltering tree.
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
The miracle of friendship can be spoken without words... hearing unspoken needs, recognizing secret dreams, understanding the silent things that only true friend know.
When you face a crisis, you know who your true friends are.
Johnson, Earvin ''Magic''
I didn't find my friends; the good Lord gave them to me.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
If you have no enemies you are apt to be in the same predicament in regard to friends.
There is an electricity about a friendship relationship. We are both more relaxed and more sensitive, more creative and more reflective, more energetic and more casual, more excited and more serene. It is as though when we come in contact with our friend we enter into a different environment. ANDREW M. GREELEY
Greeley, Andrew M.
In poverty and other misfortunes of life, true friends are a sure refuge. The young they keep out of mischief; to the old they are a comfort and aid in their weakness, and those in the prime of life they incite to noble deeds.
Don't flatter yourself that friendship authorizes you to say disagreeable things to your intimates. The nearer you come into relation with a person, the more necessary do tact and courtesy become.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
You can always tell a real friend; when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.
Peter, Laurence J.
A friend walks in when everyone else walks out
If a man urge me to tell wherefore I loved him, I feel it cannot be expressed but by answering: Because it was he, because it was myself.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
