A friend is one who knows us, but loves us anyway.
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.
Friendship isn't about whom you have known the longest. It's about who came, and never left your side.
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.
A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.
I have a friend that's like a mirror and shadow; Mirrors don't lie and shadows never leave.
If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship, we must love friends for their sake rather than for our own.
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.
When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul.
