True friends have no solitary joy or sorrow.

~~~~~~~

True friends, like diamonds, are precious and rare. False friends, like autumn leaves, are found everywhere.

~~~~~~~

‘True happiness is of a retired nature, and an enemy to pomp and noise; it arises, in the first place, from the enjoyment of one”s self, and in the next from the friendship and conversation of a few select companions.’

~~~~~~~

Trust not yourself; but your defects to know, Make use of ev’ry friend–and ev’ry foe.

~~~~~~~

‘Twas sung, how they were lovely in their lives, And in their deaths had not divided been.

~~~~~~~

Two friends, two bodies with one soul inspir’d.

~~~~~~~

Two persons will not be friends long if they cannot forgive each other little failings.

~~~~~~~

Virtuous men alone possess friends.

~~~~~~~

Wal’r, my boy,’ replied the captain; ‘in the Proverbs of Solomon you will find the following words: ‘May we never want a friend in need, nor a bottle to give him!’ When found, make a note of.’

~~~~~~~

We cannot always assure the future of our friends; we have a better chance of assuring our future if we remember who our friends are.’ Henry Kissinger

~~~~~~~

We cannot enjoy a friend here. If we are to meet it is beyond the grave. How much of our soul a friend takes with him! We half die in him.

~~~~~~~

We learn our virtues from the bosom friends who love us; our faults from the enemy who hates us. We cannot easily discover our real form from a friend. He is a mirror on which the warmth of our breath impedes the clearness of the reflection.

~~~~~~~

We must be our own before we can be another’s.

~~~~~~~

We must love our friends as true amateurs love paintings; they have their eyes perpetually fixed on the fine parts, and see no others.

~~~~~~~

We need new friends; some of us are cannibals who have eaten their old friends up; others must have ever renewed audiences before to reenact an ideal version of their lives.

~~~~~~~

We never know the true value of friends. While they live, we are too sensitive of their faults; when we have lost them, we only see their virtues.

~~~~~~~

We often choose a friend as we do a mistress — for no particular excellence in themselves, but merely from some circumstance that flatters our self-love.’ William Hazlitt

~~~~~~~

We ought to give our friend pain if it will benefit him, but not to the extent of breaking off our friendship; but just as we make use of some biting medicine that will save and preserve the life of the patient. And so the friend, like a musician, in bringing about an improvement to what is good and expedient, sometimes slackens the chords, sometimes tightens them, and is often pleasant, but always useful.

~~~~~~~

We should render a service to a friend to bind him closer to us, and to an enemy in order to make a friend of him.

~~~~~~~

We still have slept together, Rose at an instant, learned, played, eat together; And wheresoe’er we went, like Juno’s swans, Still we went coupled and inseparable.
