My friend is not perfect-no more than I am-and so we suit each other admirable.
A friend who understands your tears is much more valuable than a lot of friends who only know your smile.
Friendship isn't about whom you have known the longest. It's about who came, and never left your side.
I cut myself in the finger, and it pains me: this finger is a part of me. I see a friend hurt, and it hurts me, too: my friend and I are one.
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.
If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship, we must love friends for their sake rather than for our own.
You must act in your friends' interests whether it pleases them or not; the object of love is to serve, not to win.
Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
A good friend who points out mistakes and imperfections and rebukes evil is to be respected as if he reveals a secret of hidden treasure.
Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words.
A broken friendship that is mended through forgiveness can be even stronger than it once was.
