There are big ships and small ships. But the best ship of all is friendship.
One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.
Relationships of all kinds are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers.
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.
Our relationship is not perfect, but the love we have for each other makes up for all the small imperfections.
Love is not primarily a relationship to a specific person; it is an attitude, an ordination of character which determines the relatedness of the person to the whole world as a whole, not toward one object of love.
Friendship isn't about whom you have known the longest. It's about who came, and never left your side.
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 is someone who can see the truth and pain in you even when you are fooling everyone else.
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.
