In the adversity of our best friends we often find something that does not displease us.

To find a friend one must close one eye -- to keep him, two.
Friendship is held to be the severest test of character. It is easy, we think, to be loyal to a family and clan, whose blood is in your own veins. Love between a man and a woman is founded on the mating instinct and is not free from desire and self-seeking. But to have a friend and to be true under any and all trials is the mark of a man!
There is a great deal of unmapped country within us which would have to be taken into account in an explanation of our gusts and storms.
A faithful friend is the medicine of life.
A mirror reflects a man's face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses. [Proverbs 27:19]
One of the surest evidences of friendship that one individual can display to another is telling him gently of a fault. If any other can excel it, it is listening to such a disclosure with gratitude, and amending the error.
Friends show their love in times of trouble...
Do not make best friends with a melancholy sad soul. They always are heavily loaded, and you must bear half.

In America every woman has her set of girl-friends; some are cousins, the rest are gained at school. These form a permanent committee who sit on each other's affairs, who come out together, marry and divorce together, and who end as those groups of bustling, heartless well-informed club-women who govern society. Against them the Couple of Ehepaar is helpless and Man in their eyes but a biological interlude.
A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
Friendship is the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person having neither to weigh thoughts or measure words, but pouring all right out just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful friendly hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping and, with a breath of comfort, blow the rest away.
What is a friend? I will tell you it is someone with whom you dare to be yourself.
Thank You Friend I never came to you, my friend, and went away without some new enrichment of the heart; More faith and less of doubt, more courage in the days ahead. And often in great need coming to you, I went away comforted indeed. How can I find the shining word, the glowing phrase that tells all that your love has meant to me, all that your friendship spells? There is no word, no phrase for you on whom I so depend. All I can say to you is this, God bless you precious friend.
A friend is one who knows us, but loves us anyway.
Do not save your loving speeches for your friends till they are dead. Do not write them on their tombstones, speak them rather now instead.
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend -- or a meaningful day.
Give me work to do, Give me health, Give me joy in simple things, Give me an eye for beauty, A tongue for truth, A heart that loves, A mind that reasons, A sympathy that understands. Give me neither malice nor envy, But a true kindness And a noble common sense. At the close of each day Give me a book And a friend with whom I can be silent.
An open foe may prove a curse, but a pretended friend is worse.
Who ceases to be a friend never was one.
To keep a new friend, never break with the old.
Tell me who's your friend and I'll tell you who you are.
It takes two people to ruin a perfectly good day. First a person who says something downright nasty about you, and second, a dear friend who makes sure you hear about it immediately.
The best vitamin for making friends, B-1.
Friendship is like vitamins, we supplement each other's minimum daily requirements
May God defend me from my friends; I can defend myself from my enemies.
No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.
It is prosperity that gives us friends, adversity that proves them.
A friend is someone who doesn't like the same people you do.
The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity.
Never deceive a friend.
Friendship Never explain -- your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe it anyway. A real friend never gets in your way, unless you happen to be on the way down. A friend is someone you can do nothing with and enjoy it. However much we guard ourselves against it, we tend to shape ourselves in the image others have of us. It is not so much the example of others we imitate, as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.
Friendship is but another name for an alliance with the follies and the misfortunes of others. Our own share of miseries is sufficient: why enter then as volunteers into those of another?
When you face a crisis, you know who your true friends are.
Love Him, and keep Him for thy Friend, who, when all go away, will not forsake thee, nor suffer thee to perish at the last.
Broken friendships can be soldered, but never sound.
Be slow in choosing a friend, but slower in changing him.
Have no friends not equal to yourself.
A friend is someone you can be alone with and have nothing to do and not be able to think of anything to say and be comfortable in the silence.
Life waits for no-one.
life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain.
am i not destroying my enemies when i make friends of them?
forgiveness is me giving up the right to hurt you for hurting me.
One friend in a lifetime is much, two are many, three are hardly possible. Friendship needs a certain parallelism of life, a community of thought, a rivalry of aim.
Friendships, in general, are suddenly contracted; and therefore it is no wonder they are easily dissolved.
If two friends ask you to judge a dispute, don't accept, because you will lose one friend; on the other hand, if two strangers come with the same request, accept because you will gain one friend.
Order your soul; reduce your wants; live in charity; associate in Christian community; obey the laws; trust in Providence.
Missing you could turn from pain to pleasure, if I knew you were missing me too.
-The best Manager is the one who has sense enough to pick good people to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it. You are the best in your field, go out there today and show the world again that you are!!!
You get credit for what you finish, not what you start.
Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you ever can.
The difference between 'involvement' and 'commitment' is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was 'involved' -the pig was 'committed
The difference between earning a good living & living a good life, is enjoying what you do.
even your precious 'best friend' tells me the shit you say, so keep your mouth shut, yeah?
if i never met you, i wouldn't like you. if i didn't like you, i wouldn't love you. if i didn't love you, i wouldn't miss you. But i did, i do, and i will.
sometimes i wonder if there are words locked inside you too.. feelings. emotions. but i'll never know.
Men often blinded by beauty, women, by money
Nothing so fortifies a friendship as a belief on the part of one friend that he is superior to the other.
It is well, when judging a friend, to remember that he is judging you with the same godlike and superior impartiality.
I have three kinds of friends: those who love me, those who pay no attention to me, and those who detest me.
My true friends have always given me that supreme proof of devotion, a spontaneous aversion for the man I loved.
Friends are proved by adversity.
Most people enjoy the inferiority of their best friends.
Be more prompt to go to a friend in adversity than in prosperity.
What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun. A true friend is more to be esteemed than kinsfolk.
And though thou notest from thy safe recess old friends burn dim, like lamps in noisome air love them for what they are; nor love them less, because to thee they are not what they were.
True friendship is like sound health, the value of it is seldom known until it be lost.
Give me the avowed, the erect, the manly foe, bold I can meet, perhaps may turn his blow! But of all plagues, good Heavens, thy wrath can send, save, save, oh save me from the candid friend!
Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow; Don't walk behind me, I may not lead; Walk beside me, and just be my friend.
Some friends play at friendship, but a true friend sticks closer than one's nearest kin. [Proverbs 18:24]
Forsake not an old friend, for the new is not comparable unto him. A new friend is as new wine: when it is old thou shalt drink it with pleasure.
False friends are like our shadow, keeping close to us while we walk in the sunshine, but leaving us the instant we cross into the shade.
I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.
Friendship is like money, easier made than kept.
A mistress never is nor can be a friend. While you agree, you are lovers; and when it is over, anything but friends.
I have always laid it down as a maxim --and found it justified by experience --that a man and a woman make far better friendships than can exist between two of the same sex --but then with the condition that they never have made or are to make love to each other.
I have had, and may have still, a thousand friends, as they are called, in life, who are like one's partners in the waltz of this world --not much remembered when the ball is over.
Be thankful Be thankful for this day, and you will fill it with joy. Be appreciative of those around you, and they will bring much value to your life. Be grateful for your opportunities, and you'll find yourself making the most of them. Be thankful for what you have, and you'll get more from it. Be grateful for the challenges, and they will help you become stronger. Appreciate the dark, cloudy days and they'll instantly become brighter. Appreciate the sunny days, and you'll enjoy them even more. Those things you take for granted will fade from usefulness as you forget they're even there. By contrast, those things for which you're thankful remain readily available and will grow even stronger as a result of your appreciative attention. Consider how very fortunate you are. Consider it often. The more you count your blessings, the more there will be to count.
