A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.
There's not a word yet for old friends who've just met.
Ultimately the bond of all companionship, whether in marriage or in friendship, is conversation.
What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.
True friendship comes when the silence between two people is comfortable.
In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.
Growing apart doesn't change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I'm glad for that.
A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
