A friend is one before whom I may think aloud.
Man's best support is a very dear friend.
We make our friends; we make our enemies; but God makes our next-door neighbour.

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things, does the heart find its morning and is refreshed.
A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing or the other, and we then know how to meet him.
Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.

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.
I am a raging alcoholic and a raging addict and I didn't want to see my kids do the same thing.

My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.
Misfortune shows those who are not really friends.
If you have a candle, the light won't glow any dimmer if I light yours off of mine.
So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good.
The shifts of fortune test the reliability of friends.
Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.
Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
Loyalty is what we seek in friendship.
