My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.
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.
Duc de la Rochefoucauld

My friends are my estate.
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.
That friendship will not continue to the end which is begun for an end.
A true friend stabs you in the front.
Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?
A friend is one who walks in when others walk out.
Anybody can sympathize with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathize with a friend's success.
Miguel de Cervantes
Tell me what company thou keepst, and I'll tell thee what thou art.
My father always used to say that when you die, if you've got five real friends, then you've had a great life.

A friend is one who knows us, but loves us anyway.
Dana Scully, The X-Files
Well, it seems to me that the best relationships - the ones that last - are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is... suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.
J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
There are some things you can't share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.

All our young lives we search for someone to love. We chose partners, change partner...all the while wondering of there's someone, somewhere who might be searching for us.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The only reward of virtue is virtue; the only way to have a friend is to be a friend.
May there always be work for your hands to do, may your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine on your windowpane, may a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you, may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
