Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness.
A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.
Anybody can sympathise with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathise with a friend's success.
Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
It's the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.
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.
One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.
A friend to all is a friend to none.
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.
I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
My best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake.
All you need to do to be my friend is like me.
