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.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.
Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.

One who knows how to show and to accept kindness will be a friend better than any possession.
My best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake.
A man should never neglect his family for business.
Friendship multiplies the good of life and divides the evil.
