Friend Quotes

The best mirror is an old friend.

George Herbert

All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry

Edgar Allan Poe

If you are worthy of its affection, a cat will be your friend but never your slave.

Theophile Gautier

Honest criticism is hard to take, particularly from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance, or a stranger.

Franklin P. Jones

Every writer since the beginning of time, just like other people, has been afflicted by what [a] friend of mine calls "the fleas of life"-you know, colds, hangovers, bills, sprained ankles and little nuisances of one sort or another.

William Styron

Wealth is both an enemy and a friend.

Nepali Proverbs

Outside of a dog, a book is probably man’s best friend, and inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.

Groucho Marx

A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, big or small, young or old. He doesn't care if you're not smart, not popular, not a good joke-teller, not the best athlete, nor the best-looking person. To your dog, you are the greatest, the smartest, the nicest human being who was ever born. You are his friend and protector.

Louis Sabin

The friendships which last are those wherein each friend respects the other's dignity to the point of not really wanting anything from him

Cyril Connolly

Well, it seems to me that the best relationships - the ones that last - are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is... suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with

Gillian Anderson

Nothing is so dangerous as an ignorant friend; a wise enemy is worth more.

Jean de la Fontaine

Drama is based on the Mistake. I think someone is my friend when he really is my enemy, that I am free to marry a woman when in fact she is my mother, that this person is a chambermaid when it is a young nobleman in disguise, that this well-dressed young man is rich when he is really a penniless adventurer, or that if I do this such and such a result will follow when in fact it results in something very different. All good drama has two movements, first the making of the mistake, then the discovery that it was a mistake.

W. H. Auden

The only reward of virtue is virtue; the only way to have a friend is to be one

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Give, and you may keep your friend it you lose your money; lend, and the chances are that you lose your friend if ever you get back your money

Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

He who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare, And he who has one enemy will meet him everywhere.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.

Washington Irving

I say that habit's but a long practice, friend, and this becomes men's nature in the end.

Aristotle

Every gift from a friend is a wish for your happiness.

Richard Bach

It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.

William Blake

The skilful class of flatterers praise the discourse of an ignorant friend and the face of a deformed one.

Juvenal

The best preservative to keep the mind on health is the faithful admonition of a friend.

Francis Bacon, Sr.

A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world.

Leo Buscaglia

A friend drops their plans when you're in trouble, shares joy in your accomplishments, feels sad when you're in pain. A friend encourages your dreams and offers advice--but when you don't follow it, they still respect and love you

Doris Wild Helmering

A faithful friend is the medicine of life
