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.
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.
It's the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.
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.
Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.
I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
Friendship is the golden thread that ties the heart of all the world.
My best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake.
