A friend should be one in whose understanding and virtue we can equally confide, and whose opinion we can value at once for its justness and its sincerity.
A friend to all is a friend to none.
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 friendship founded on business is better than a business founded on friendship.
John D. Rockefeller
A hug is like a boomerang - you get it back right away.
A man's growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world.
A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
Arnold H. Glasow
An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Friends and good manners will carry you where money won't go.
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.
Fear makes strangers of people who would be friends.
Friends are born, not made.
Henry B. Adams
Friendship and money: oil and water.
Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.
Friendship is held to be the severest test of character. It is easy, we think, to be loyal to a family and clan, whose blood is in your own veins.
Charles Alexander Eastman
