Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.
Truth springs from argument amongst friends.
I don't want my friends to die for me; if they will just be polite and let me alone, I will be satisfied.
Prosperity makes friends, adversity tries them
Nothing purchased can come close to the renewed sense of gratitude for having family and friends.
Show me the books he loves and I shall know the man far better than through mortal friends.
When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don't blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or our family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.
Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living.
Animals are my friends... and I do not eat my friends.
For the most part, we carnivores do not eat other carnivores. We prefer to eat our vegetarian friends.
Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.
Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keep friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.
Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.
A man's best friends are his ten fingers.r
Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?
Don't ask of your friends what you yourself can do.
Friendship with oneself is all important because without it one cannot be friends with anybody else in the world
It's the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends
I have no trouble with my enemies. But my goddam friends,...they are the ones that keep me walking the floor nights.
He who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare, And he who has one enemy will meet him everywhere.
I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.
I've discovered a way to stay friends forever --
There's really nothing to it.
I simply tell you what to do
And you do it!
Friends come and go, but enemies accumulate
Our friends are those who know their own faults well enough to forgive us ours.
