The secret to friendship is being a good listener.
Good friends care for each other, close friends understand each other, but true friends stay forever beyond words, beyond distance and beyond time.
One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.
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.
I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.
Friendship isn't about whom you have known the longest. It's about who came, and never left your side.
