No one who can read, ever looks at a book, even unopened on a shelf, like one who cannot.
Man's best support is a very dear friend.
Friends are nothing but a known enemy
Constant use had not worn ragged the fabric of their friendship.
A friend to all is a friend to none.
I love the friends I have gathered together on this thin raft...
A friend should be a master at guessing and keeping still.
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 nothing else than an accord in all things, human and divine, conjoined with mutual goodwill and affection.
It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.
There is no surer foundation for a beautiful friendship than a mutual taste in literature.
Friendship makes prosperity more brilliant, and lightens adversity by dividing and sharing 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.
So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart, I shall say that life is good.
Friendship is like money, easier made than kept.
Anybody amuses me for once. A new acquaintance is like a new book. I prefer it, even if bad, to a classic.
Shared joys make a friend, not shared sufferings.
Friendship was given by nature to be an assistant to virtue, not a companion in vice.
It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.
If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever.
