The more nonsense you tolerate from someone, the more nonsense you get.
A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.
A friend to all is a friend to none.
A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so often - just to save it from drying out completely.
A man's growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends.
A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world.
A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.
