Friends are as companions on a journey, who ought to aid each other to persevere in the road to a happier life.
Betray a friend, and you'll often find you have ruined yourself.
Friendship with oneself is all-important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else.
There is some self-interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self-interests. This is a bitter truth.
You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity
A friend is one who has the same enemies as you have.
Adversity tests the sincerity of friends.
A blow from your friend is better than a kiss from your enemy.
As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.
I not only use all the brains I have, but all I can borrow.
If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever.
Marriage has no guarantees. If that's what you're looking for, go live with a car battery.
The more you let yourself go, the less others let you go.
The best kind of friend is the kind you sit with, never say a word and walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you ever had.
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
If you go out looking for friends, you're going to find they are very scarce. If you go out to be a friend, you'll find them everywhere.
Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
