Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
The world is a rose, smell it and pass it to your friends.
We English are good at forgiving our enemies; it releases us from the obligation of liking our friends.
No good friends, no bad friends; only people you want, need to be with. People who build their houses in your heart
I've always said that in politics, your enemies can't hurt you, but your friends will kill you.
A man should choose a friend who is better than himself. There are plenty of acquaintances in the world; but very few real friends.
If you make friends with yourself you will never be alone.
Eventually you love people - friends or lovers - because of their flaws.
Certain flaws are necessary for the whole. It would seem strange if old friends lacked certain quirks.
Besides, my usefulness here is destroyed because all of my friends think me a man of unsound mind
Friends are just enemies that don't have the guts to kill you.
God save me from my friends. I can protect myself from my enemies.
Friends may come and go, but enemies accumulate.
Money can't buy friends, but it can get you a better class of enemy.
An enemy makes a true friends value apparent.
May this plain statement of facts prevail on the friends of the rising generation to interpose for their welfare; that the education of children may no longer be to parent and master a lottery, in which the prizes bear no proportion to the enormous number of blanks.
Itís curious what we take for granted or never even notice. Untold thousands of insects are devoured nightly by our little fury friends, the bats. They emerge at dusk and disappear at dawn, and we are hardly aware of what they have done for us.
I love everything thats old: old friends, old times, old manners, old books, old wines.
Alonso of Aragon was wont to say in commendation of age, that age appears to be best in four things - old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.
How about some toasts? My favorite is:
If all be true that I do think, there are five reasons we should drink. Good friends, good times, or being dry, or lest we should be by and by, or any other reason why.
Heart attacks... God's revenge for eating his little animal friends.
The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat are really good friends.
The virtue of dress rehearsals is that they are a free show for a select group of artists and friends of the author, and where for one unique evening the audience is almost expurgated of idiots
I was just glad to meet somebody outside of my group of small town friends who was into music. Somebody else who had aspirations to do something more than sing at a record hop.
The most important thing is to follow your instinct and get involved with some friends who have similar tastes and aspirations and like music as much as you do.
