He who loses money, loses much; He who loses a friend, loses much more; He who loses faith, loses all.
St. Basil, Greek religious leader
He who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
Hearts will break - yet brokenly, live on.
Hold a true friend with both your hands.
I always like to know everything about my new friends, and nothing about my old ones.
Charles R. Swindoll
I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with the roughest courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work, but the solidest thing we know.
I don't agree with a word you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
J. R. R. Tolkien (Bilbo Baggins from "The Hobbit")
I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve...
I have friends in overalls whose friendship I would not swap for the favor of the kings of the world.
