Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing

If you do a job too well, you’ll get stuck with it.

A friend is a present you give yourself

A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be

A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.

A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you

A friend is someone who will bail you out of jail. A best friend is the one sitting next to you saying “boy was that fun.

A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they’re not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they’re not so bad

A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out

A true friend is one who overlooks your failures and tolerates your successes

As old wood is best to burn; old horses to ride; old books to read; old wine to drink; so are old friends most trusty to use

Choose your friends and mates, not by the money in their bank account, creed, ethnicity, or color; instead, choose character, actions, heart, and soul. When we bleed, we bleed the same color

Do not save your loving speeches for your friends till they are dead; Do not write them on their tombstones; speak them rather now instead

Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive

Friends are born, not made.

Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer

Friendship consists in forgetting what one gives and remembering what one receives

Friendship improves happiness, and abates misery, by doubling our joys, and dividing our grief

Friendship is like peeing on yourself everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings

Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together

Friendship isn’t a big thing — it’s a million little things

I always felt that the great high privilege, relief and comfort of friendship was that one had to explain nothing

I count myself in nothing else so happy As in a soul remembering my good friends
