It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.

Khalil Gibran

Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness.


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.

Albert Camus

My best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake.


The language of friendship is not words but meanings.

Henry David Thoreau

I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.


Friendship is the source of the greatest pleasures, and without friends even the most agreeable pursuits become tedious.

Thomas Aquinas

The friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.

Elbert Hubbard

A friendship founded on business is better than a business founded on friendship.

John D. Rockefeller
