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.
You must act in your friends' interests whether it pleases them or not; the object of love is to serve, not to win.
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.
A friend who understands your tears is much more valuable than a lot of friends who only know your smile.
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.
Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money.
I'm treating you as a friend asking you to share my present minuses in the hope that I can ask you to share my future pluses.
