If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.
I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.
True friendship comes when the silence between two people is comfortable.
Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart.
Don’t make friends who are comfortable to be with. Make friends who will force you to lever yourself up.
You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.
A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.
I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
