Charles Caleb Colton
Friendship often ends in love; but love in friendship -- never.
Friendship is the finest balm for the pangs of despised love.
George Jean Nathan
Love demands infinitely less than friendship.
It would be impossible to love anyone or anything one knew completely. Love is directed towards what lies hidden in its object.
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
Fr. Jerome Cummings
A friend is one who knows us, but loves us anyway.
My love, you know you are my best friend.
You know that I'd do anything for you
And my love, let nothing come between us.
My love for you is strong and true.
We all need friends with whom we can speak of our deepest concerns, and who do not fear to speak the truth in love to us.
Platonic love is like an inactive volcano.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
All love that has not friendship for its base is like a mansion built upon the sand.
E. Joseph Crossmann
Love is friendship set to music.
Love, in distinction from friendship, is killed, or rather extinguished, the moment it is displayed in public.
No love, no friendship, can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever.
We cannot really love anybody with whom we never laugh.
