With a friend at you side no road seems too long.
One’s friends are that part of the human race with which one can be human.
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.
Hold a true friend with both your hands.
A friend, by a phone call, a popping-in, a chance meeting, a small unexpected surprise, puts a little jam on the day’s bread and butter.
Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.
Knowing you are somewhere – near or far – means I’m never, never totally alone.
(Marion C. Garretty)
Friendships that have stood the test of time and change are surely the best.
The language of friendship is not words but meaning.
(Henry David Thoreau)
Nothing can come between true friends.
Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
Seeing a good friend is like going home, or like tasting Mother’s cooking. I feel secure, and need not protect myself. “Here,” I say, “it is safe, for I am loved.”
(Arnold R. Beisser)
What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.
There’s nothing worth the wear of winning, but laughter and the love of friends.
...friendship, the ease of it, it is not something to be taken lightly – not for granted. Because, after breathing and eating and sleeping, friendships are essential to our survival.
A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out.
Grief can take care of itself, but to get the full value of a joy you must have somebody to divide it with.
Friendship is the wine of life.
Your friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
It is one of the blessing of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with.
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Because I got you to look after me, and you got me to look after you....
We got each other, that’s what, that gives a hoot in hell about us...
To your good health, old friend, may you live for a thousand years, and I be there to count them.
(Robert Smith Surtees)
Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me, and just be my friend.
