~~~~~~~

What shall I do, my friend, When you are gone forever? My heart its eager need will send Through the years to find you never, And how will it be with you, In the weary world, I wonder, Will you love me with a love as true, When our paths lie far asunder?

~~~~~~~

When I choose my friend, I will not stay till I have received a kindness; but I will choose such a one that can do me many if I need them; but I mean such kindnesses which make me wiser, and which make me better.

~~~~~~~

Why haven’t women got labels on their foreheads saying, ‘Danger: Government Health Warning: Women can be dangerous to your brains, genitals, current account, confidence, razor blades and good standing among your friends.’

~~~~~~~

With regard to the choice of friends, there is little to say; for a friend is never chosen. A secret sympathy, the attraction of a thousand nameless qualities, a charm in the expression of the countenance, even in the voice or manner, a similarity of circumstances–these are the things that begin attachment.

~~~~~~~

With true friends…even water drunk together is sweet enough.’ Chinese Proverb

~~~~~~~

Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.

~~~~~~~

Yes, we must ever be friends; and of all who offer you friendship Let me be ever the first, the truest, the nearest and dearest!

You are my true and honorable wife, As dear to me as the ruddy drops That visit my sad heart.

~~~~~~~

You must therefore love me, myself, and not my circumstances, if we are to be real friends.

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.’

~~~~~~~

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.

The wicked can have only accomplices, the voluptuous have companions in debauchery, self-seekers have associates, the politic assemble the factions, the typical idler has connections, princes have courtiers. Only the virtuous have friends.’ Voltaire

~~~~~~~

The worst solitude is to be destitute of sincere friendship.’ Sir Francis Bacon

~~~~~~~

The wretched have no friends.

There are no better feelings in life than the feelings you experience when you are surrounded by the friends you love.

~~~~~~~

There are small ships and big ships, but the best ships are friendships!

~~~~~~~

There have been fewer friends on earth than kings.

~~~~~~~

They who dare to ask anything of a friend, by their very request seem to imply that they would do anything for the sake of that friend.

~~~~~~~

Those who want friends to open themselves unto are cannibals of their own hearts.

~~~~~~~

Thou may’st be sure that he that will in private tell thee of thy faults, is thy friend, for he adventures thy dislike, and doth hazard thy hatred; for there are few men that can endure it, every man for the most part delighting in self-praise, which is one of the most universal follies that bewitcheth mankind.

~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~

True friends are the whole world to one another; and he that is a friend to himself is also a friend to mankind. Even in my studies the greatest delight I take is of imparting it to others; for there is no relish to me in the possessing of anything without a partner.

The best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake.’ Aristotle

~~~~~~~

The fallying out of faithful frends is the reunyng of love.

~~~~~~~

The flatterer’s object is to please in everything he does; whereas the true friend always does what is right, and so often gives pleasure, often pain, not wishing the latter, but not shunning it either, if he deems it best.

~~~~~~~

The friend asks no return but that his friend will religiously accept and wear, and not disgrace, his apotheosis of him.

~~~~~~~

The friend of all humanity is not to my taste.

~~~~~~~

The friends I made have slipped and strayed. And who’s the one that cares A trifling lot and best forgot – And that’s my tale, and theirs. Then if my ‘friendships break and bend There’s little need to cry The while I know that every foe Is faithful till I die.’

~~~~~~~

The generality of friends puts us out of conceit with friendship; just as the generality of religious people puts us out of conceit with religion.

The man that hails you Tom or Jack, And proves by thumps upon your back How he esteems your merit, Is such a friend, that one had need Be very much his friend indeed To pardon or to bear it.

~~~~~~~

The man with a host of friends who slaps on the back everybody he meets is regarded as the friend of nobody.

~~~~~~~

The new is older than the old; And newest friend is oldest friend in this: That, waiting him, we longest grieved to miss One thing we sought.

~~~~~~~

The noblest part of a friend is an honest boldness in the notifying of errors. He that tells me of a fault, aiming at my good, I must think him wise and faithful–wise in spying that which I see not; faithful in a plain admonishment, not tainted with flattery.

~~~~~~~

The ornaments of a home are the friends who frequent it.

~~~~~~~

The place where two friends first met is sacred to them all through their friendship, all the more sacred as their friendship deepens and grows old.

~~~~~~~

The poor make no new friends; But oh, they love the better still The few our Father sends.

~~~~~~~

‘The proper office of a friend is to side with you when you are wrong. Nearly anybody will side with you when you are right.’

~~~~~~~

The sun is a hundred thousand leagues away, and the water-roses that open to the light of day are in the pool; the moon, friend of the night-blooming lotus, is two hundred thousand leagues distant. Friendship knows no separation that divides it in space.

~~~~~~~

The way is short, O friend, That reaches out before us; God’s tender heavens above us bend, His love is smiling o’er us; A little while is ours For sorrow or for laughter; I’ll lay the hand you love in yours On the shore of the Hereafter.

~~~~~~~

The way to gain a friend is to be one.

Only choose in marriage a woman whom you would choose as a friend if she were a man.

~~~~~~~

Other blessings may be taken away, but if we have acquired a good friend by goodness, we have a blessing which improves in value when others fail. It is even heightened by sufferings.

~~~~~~~

Our friends early appear to us as representatives of certain ideas, which they never pass or exceed. They stand on the brink of the ocean of thought and power, but they never take a single step that would bring them there.

~~~~~~~

Our friends should be our incentives to right, but not only our guiding, but our prophetic, stars. To love by right is much, to love by faith is more; both are the entire love, without which heart, mind, and soul cannot be alike satisfied. We love and ought to love one another, not merely for the absolute worth of each, but on account of a mutual fitness of temporary character.

~~~~~~~

Our friends show us what we can do; our enemies teach us what we must do.’ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

~~~~~~~

Poets, like friends to whom you are in debt, you hate.

~~~~~~~

Real friends are our greatest joy and our greatest sorrow. It were almost to be wished that all true and faithful friends should expire on the same day.

~~~~~~~

Reprove your friends in secret, praise them openly. [Secrete amicos admone, lauda palam.]

~~~~~~~

Save, oh! save me from the candid friend.

~~~~~~~

Self-love increases or diminishes for us the good qualities of our friends, in proportion to the satisfaction we feel with them; and we judge of their merit by the manner in which they act towards us.

~~~~~~~

She that asks Her dear five hundred friends, contemns them all, And hates their coming.

~~~~~~~

So also it is good not always to make a friend of the person who is expert in twining himself around us; but, after testing them, to attach ourselves to those who are worthy of our affection and likely to be serviceable to us.

~~~~~~~

Some dire misfortune to portend, no enemy can match a friend.

~~~~~~~

Some friends play at friendship, but a true friend sticks closer than one’s nearest kin. [Proverbs 18:24]

~~~~~~~

Sometimes we lose friends for whose loss our regret is greater than our grief, and others for whom our grief is greater than our regret.

~~~~~~~

Summer friends vanish when the cask is drained to the dregs.

~~~~~~~

Take heed of a speedy professing friend; love is never lasting which flames before it burns.

~~~~~~~

Tears may come and go, But there’s one thing I know. All my life you’re a friend of mine. You can depend on me. I’ll be fine… ‘Cause you’re a friend of mine.

~~~~~~~

The attempt to make one false impression on the mind of a friend respecting ourselves is of the nature of perfidy. Sincerity should be observed most scrupulously.

~~~~~~~

Never exaggerate your faults. Your friends will attend to that.’ Sir Francis Bacon

~~~~~~~

No better relation than a prudent and faithful friend.

~~~~~~~

No friend’s a friend till [he shall] prove a friend.

~~~~~~~

No man can expect to find a friend without faults; nor can he propose himself to be so to another. Without reciprocal mildness and temperance there can be no continuance of friendship. Every man will have something to do for his friend, and something to bear with in him. The sober man only can do the first; and for the latter, patience is requisite. It is better for a man to depend on himself, than to be annoyed with either a madman or a fool.

~~~~~~~

No receipt openeth the heart but a true friend, to whom you may impart griefs, joys, fears, hopes, suspicions, counsels, and whatsoever lieth upon the heart to oppress it, in a kind of civil shrift or confession.

~~~~~~~

Nobody who is afraid of laughing, and heartily too at his friend, can be said to have a true and thorough love for him; and, on the other hand, it would portray a sorry want of faith to distrust a friend because he laughs at you. Few men, I believe, are much worth loving in whom there is not something well worth laughing at.

~~~~~~~

Nothing endears so much a friend as sorrow for his death. The pleasure of his company has not so powerful an influence.

~~~~~~~

Nothing shows one who his friends are like prosperity and ripe fruit.

~~~~~~~

Now when men either are unnatural or irreligious they will not be friends; when they are neither excellent nor useful, they are not worthy to be friends; when they are strangers or unknown, they cannot be friends actually and practically; but yet, as any man hath anything of the good, contrary to those evils, so he can have and must have his share of friendship.

~~~~~~~

Now with my friend I desire not to share or participate, but to engross his sorrows, that, by making them mine own, I may more easily discuss them; for in mine own reason, and within myself, I can command that which I cannot entreat without myself, and within the circle of another.

~~~~~~~

O friend! O best of friends! Thy absence more Than the impending night darkens the landscape o’er!

~~~~~~~

O friend, my bosom said, Through thee alone the sky is arched. Through thee the rose is red; All things through thee take nobler form, And look beyond the earth, The mill-round of our fate appears A sun-path in thy worth. Me too thy nobleness has taught To master my despair; The fountains of my hidden life Are through thy friendship fair.

~~~~~~~

Oblige a friend.

~~~~~~~

Of friends, however humble, scorn not one.

~~~~~~~

Oh, be my friend, and teach me to be thine!

~~~~~~~

Old friends are the great blessings of one’s latter years. Half a word conveys one’s meaning. They have memory of the same events, and have the same mode of thinking. I have young relations that may grow upon me, for my nature is affectionate, but can they grow old friends? My age forbids that. Still less can they grow companions. Is it friendship to explain half one says? One must relate the history of one’s memory and ideas; and what is that to the young but old stories?

~~~~~~~

On the moral plane, true friends enjoy the same protection as the sense of smell confers upon dogs. They scent the sorrow of their friends, they divine its causes, and they clasp it to their minds and hearts.

~~~~~~~

One can do without people but one has need of a friend.

~~~~~~~

One faithful Friend is enough for a man’s self, ’tis much to meet with such an one, yet we can’t have too many for the sake of others.

~~~~~~~

One may discover a new side to his most intimate friend when for the first time he hears him speak in public. He will be stranger to him as he is more familiar to the audience. The longest intimacy could not foretell how he would behave then.’ Henry David Thoreau

~~~~~~~

Make friends of equals.

~~~~~~~

Make friends of the wise.

~~~~~~~

Make not a bosom friend of a melancholy soul; he’ll be sure to aggravate thy adversity and lessen thy prosperity. He goes always heavily loaded, and thou must bear half. He is never in a good humor, and may easily get into a bad one, and fall out with thee.

~~~~~~~

May I never sit on a tribunal where my friends shall not find more favor from me than strangers.

~~~~~~~

Men make the best friends.

~~~~~~~

My designs and labors And aspirations are my only friends.

~~~~~~~

My joy in friends, those sacred people, is my consolation.

~~~~~~~

Nature teaches beasts to know their friends.

~~~~~~~

Necessarius,’ the friend, the man who is necessary. * * * A deep word, an ingenious word, a touching word. When will it be French?

I would be friends with you and have your love, Forget the shames that you have stained me with, Supply your present wants, and take no doit Of usance for my moneys; and you’ll not hear me. This is kind I offer.

~~~~~~~

I would not enter on my list of friends (Though graced with polish’d manner and fine sense, Yet wanting sensibility) the man Who needlessly sets foot upon a worm.

~~~~~~~

If thy friends be of better quality than thyself, thou mayest be sure of two things: the first, that they will be more careful to keep thy counsel, because they have more to lose than thou hast; the second, they will esteem thee for thyself, and not for that which thou dost possess.

~~~~~~~

If we are long absent from our friends, we forget them; if we are constantly with them, we despise them.

~~~~~~~

If we take the freedom to put a friend under our microscope, we thereby insulate him from many of his true relations, magnify his peculiarities, inevitably tear him into parts, and, of course, patch him very clumsily together again. What wonder, then, should we be frightened by the aspect of a monster.

~~~~~~~

If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.’ Mother Teresa

~~~~~~~

If you live to be , I want to live to be minus one day, so I never have to live without you.

~~~~~~~

If you want to win friends, make it a point to remember them. If you remember my name, you pay me a subtle compliment; you indicate that I have made an impression on you. Remember my name and you add to my feeling of importance.’ Dale Carnegie

~~~~~~~

In all thy humors, whether grave or mellow, Thou’rt such a touchy, testy, pleasant fellow, Hast so much wit and mirth, and spleen about thee, That there’s no living with thee, nor without thee.

~~~~~~~

In America every woman has her set of girl-friends; some are cousins, the rest are gained at school. These form a permanent committee who sit on each other’s affairs, who come out together, marry and divorce together, and who end as those groups of bustling, heartless well-informed club-women who govern society. Against them the Couple of Ehepaar is helpless and Man in their eyes but a biological interlude.

~~~~~~~

Iron sharpen iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

~~~~~~~

How often we find ourselves turning our backs on our actual friends, that we may go and meet their ideal cousins.’ Henry David Thoreau

~~~~~~~

However we may flatter ourselves to the contrary, our friends think no higher of us than the world do. They see us with the jaundiced or distrustful eyes of others. They may know better, but their feelings are governed by popular prejudice. Nay, they are more shy of us (when under a cloud) than even strangers; for we involve them in a common disgrace, or compel them to embroil themselves in continual quarrels and disputes in our defence.

~~~~~~~

I have myself to respect, but to myself I am not amiable; but my friend is my amiableness personified.

Friendship is one of the sweetest joys of life. Many might have failed beneath the bitterness of their trial had they not found a friend.’ Charles Haddon Spurgeon

~~~~~~~

Friendship is the ideal; friends are the reality; reality always remains far apart from the ideal.

~~~~~~~

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.

~~~~~~~

Friendship, ‘the wine of life,’ said Boswell, ‘should, like a well-stocked cellar, be thus continually renewed.’ And Dr. Johnson added to this ‘A man, Sir, should keep his friendships in constant repair.

~~~~~~~

From the loss of our friends teach us how to enjoy and improve those who remain.

~~~~~~~
