'Tis a great confidence in a friend to tell him your faults; greater to tell him his.
You must act in your friends' interests whether it pleases them or not; the object of love is to serve, not to win.
Trying to live without friends is like milking a bear to get for your morning coffee. It is a whole lot of trouble, and then not worth much after you get it.
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.
A friend who understands your tears is much more valuable than a lot of friends who only know your smile.
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.
