‘The making of friends who are real friends, is the best token we have of a man’s success in life’.
-Edward Everett Hale
‘What is a friend?’ I’ll tell you … it is someone whom you dare to be yourself’.
‘A friend is one who knows us, but loves us anyway’
‘Only your real friend will tell you when your face is dirty’
‘A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him I may think aloud. I am arrived at last in the presence of a man so real and equal, that I may drop even those undermost garments of dissimulation, courtesy, and second thought, which men never put off, and may deal with him with the simplicity and wholeness with which one chemical atom meets another.’
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
‘Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods.’
‘A brother may not be a friend, but a friend will always be a brother’.
‘Greater love has no one than this: than one lay down his life for his friends’.
Friendship is a gift, accept it with appreciation, take care of it with affection, and love it with true love…
