Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?
The making of friends, who are real friends, is the best token we have of a man’s success in life.
To be your friend was all I ever wanted;
to be your lover was all I ever dreamed.
Remember friends as you pass by,
As you are now so once was I.
As low as I you once must be,
Prepare yourself and follow me.
The most I can do for my friend is simply to be his friend. I have no wealth to bestow on him. If he knows that I am happy in loving him, he will want no other reward. Is not friendship divine in this?
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.
Remember, the greatest gift is not found in a store nor under a tree, but in the hearts of true friends.
I keep my friends as misers do their treasure, because, of all the things granted us by wisdom, none is greater or better than friendship.
You can make more friends in two months by becoming really interested in other people, than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.
