In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
There are only two things to worry about, either you are healthy or you are sick. If you are healthy, then there is nothing to worry about. But if you are sick there are only two things to worry about, either you will get well or you will die. If you get well, then there is nothing to worry about. But if you die there are only two things to worry about, either you will go to heaven or to hell. If you go to heaven, then there is nothing to worry about. And if you to go hell, you'll be so darn busy shaking hands with your friends you won't have time to worry!
False friends are like our shadow, keeping close to us while we walk in the sunshine, but leaving us the instant we cross into the shade.
We have to learn to be our own best friends because we fall too easily into the trap of being our own worst enemies
Friends are God's apology for relations.
It is inevitable that those to whom is vouchsafed a long life of usefulness should outlive the friends of their youth
The vulgar crowd values friends according to their usefulness
Friendship increases in visiting friends, but in visiting them seldom.
Old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.
Most people have more than one soul mate. You may already be in several soul mate relationships with friends and loved ones. A soul mate can come in the form of a life partner, treasured friend, child, or lover. A soul mate can be someone with whom you share a spiritual path, a joint work in the world, or a commitment to be parents to certain souls. It can be someone whose growth you are sponsoring, such as a child.
Faithful friends are gifts from heaven: Whoever finds one has found a treasure.
Sorrow is like a precious treasure, shown only to friends.
Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetime, is certain for those who are friends.
Farewell all relations and friends in Christ; farewell acquaintances and all earthly enjoyments; farewell reading and preaching, praying and believing, wanderings, reproaches, and sufferings.
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.
Don't listen to friends when the Friend inside you says 'Do this.'.
True friendship consists not in the multitude of friends, but in their worth and value.
Friendship with oneself is all important because without it one cannot be friends with anybody else in the world
Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
It is easy enough to be friendly to one's friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business.
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!
We read that we ought to forgive our enemies; but we do not read that we ought to forgive our friends.
It seems to me that trying to live without friends is like milking a bear to get cream for your morning coffee. It is a whole lot of trouble, and then not worth much after you get it.
Remember, the greatest gift is not found in a store nor under a tree, but in the hearts of true friends.
