No one is your friend who demands your silence or denies your right to grow.
One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.
People say true friends should always hold hands, but true friends don't need to hold hands because they know that the other hand will always be there.
A friend will joyfully sing with you when you are on the mountain top, and silently walk beside you through the valley.
A real friend is someone who tries to pick you up when you've fallen and if they can't pick you up they lay down right beside you.
Good friends care for each other, close friends understand each other, but true friends stay forever beyond words, beyond distance and beyond time.
A strong friendship doesn't need daily conversation or being together. As long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends are never apart.
Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another, 'What? You too! I thought I was the only one.'
There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.
I always felt that the great high privilege, relief and comfort of friendship was that one had to explain nothing.
A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities.
