Friendship Quotes

Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is far the best ending for one.

Oscar Wilde

But you realize, love should ALWAYS start as friendship. If you can't be friends first, then love is USELESS. And I will be adamant about this fact. Lovers must be best friends. If you ask me, if you ask a married couple who their best friends are, and they reply someone OTHER than their spouse, their marriage will fail. Friends first. Always.

It is wise to apply the oil of refined politeness to the mechanisms of friendship.

Colette

To say that a man is your Friend, means commonly no more than this, that he is not your enemy. Most contemplate only what would be the accidental and trifling advantages of Friendship, as that the Friend can assist in time of need by his substance, or his influence, or his counsel. Even the utmost goodwill and harmony and practical kindness are not sufficient for Friendship, for Friends do not live in harmony merely, as some say, but in melody.

Henry David Thoreau

Most friends sicken us of friendship, most devotees of devotion.

François de la Rochefoucauld

Our very best friends have a tincture of jealousy even in their friendship; and when they hear us praised by others, will ascribe it to sinister and interested motives if they can.

Charles Caleb Colton

Happiness is understanding that friendship is more precious than mere things, more precious than getting your own way, more precious than being in situations where true principles are not at stake.

J. Donald Walters

An Argument needs no reason; Nor any friendship

Ibycus

True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not depend on darkness and ignorance.

Henry David Thoreau

Prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.

St. Teresa of Avila

Sensual pleasure passes and vanishes in the twinkling of an eye, but the friendship between us, the mutual confidence, the delights of the heart, the enchantment of the soul, these things do not perish and can never be destroyed. I shall love you until I die.

Voltaire

True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it be lost.

Charles Caleb Colton

Friendship, of itself a holy tie, Is made more sacred by adversity

Charles Caleb Colton

Women are quite able to make friends with a man; but to preserve such a friendship - that no doubt requires the assistance of a slight physical antipathy

Friedrich Nietzsche

Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.

Muhammad Ali

Friendship is not always the sequel of obligation

Samuel Johnson

There can be no friendship without confidence; and no confidence, without integrity

Unknown

Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; a mother's secret hope outlives them all!

Washington Irving

Friendship doubles our joy and divides our grief.

Swedish Proverb

School's out, Memories past, Don't ever doubt, Our friendship will last.

Unknown

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

If life is a path, we are barefoot and we each scatter before us the contents of two bags hanging from our shoulders. From the first bag -- sharp nails of worry, fear, regret and doubt, or from the second bag -- rose petals of hope, joy, friendship and confidence. If life is a path...we are the masters of that path.

Laura Teresa Marquez

It is not for minds like ours to give or to receive flatter; yet the praises of sincerity have ever been permitted to the voice of friendship

Lord Byron

Business, you know, may bring money, but friendship hardly ever does.

Jane Austen
