Families will not be broken. Curse and expel them send their children wandering drown them in floods and fires and old women will make songs of all these sorrows and sit in the porches and sing them on mild evenings.

The way to make a true friend is to be one. Friendship implies loyalty esteem cordiality sympathy affection readiness to aid to help to stick to fight for if need be. ... Radiate friendship and it will return sevenfold.

To cement a new friendship especially between foreigners or persons of a different social world a spark with which both were secretly charged must fly from person to person and cut across the accidents of place and time.

Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends for it is one of God's best gifts. It involves many things but above all the power of getting out of one's self and appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another.

It should be part of our private ritual to devote a quarter of an hour every day to the enumeration of the good qualities of our friends. When we are not active we fall back idly upon defects even of those whom we most love.

It is great to have friends when one is young but indeed it is still more so when you are getting old. When we are young friends are like everything else a matter of course. In the old days we know what it means to have them.

We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop there is at last a drop which makes it run over. So in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over.

Sisters define their rivalry in terms of competition for the gold cup of parental love. It is never perceived as a cup which runneth over rather a finite vessel from which the more one sister drinks the less is left over for the others.

The desire to be and have a sister is a primitive and profound one that may have everything or nothing to do with the family a woman is born to. It is a desire to know and be known by someone who shares blood and body history and dreams.

What causes us to like new acquaintances is not so much weariness of our old ones or the pleasure of change as disgust at not being sufficiently admired by those who know us too well and the hope of being admired more by those who do not know so much about us.

Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is.

Any man will usually get from other men what he is expecting from them. If he is looking for friendship he will likely receive it. If his attitude is that of indifference it will beget indifference. And if a man is looking for a fight he will in all likelihood be accommodated in that.

I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. Still the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend.

I observed once to Goethe ... that when a friend is with us we do not think the same of him as when he is away. He replied 'Yes! because the absent friend is yourself and he exists only in your head; whereas the friend who is present has an individuality of his own and moves according to laws of his own which cannot always be in accordance with those which you form for yourself.'
