“God gave us our relatives; thank God we can choose our friends.”
“Do I not effectually destroy my enemies, in making them my friends?”
“Friendship may, and often does, grow into love, but love never subsides into friendship.”
“Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.”
“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”
“I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.”
“We need old friends to help us grow old and new friends to help us stay young.”
“To be your friend was all I ever wanted; to be your lover was all I ever dreamed.”
Silences make the real conversations between friends. Not the saying but the never needing to say is what counts.
As the rest of the world is walking out the door, your best friends are the ones walking in.
Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.
Depth of friendship does not depend on length of acquaintance
