Friendship Quotes

True friendship is like a rose: we don't realize its beauty until it fades.

Evelyn Loeb

Gold begets in brethren hate; Gold in families debate; Gold does friendship separate; Gold does civil wars create.

Abraham Cowley

The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.

Hubert Humphrey

If a fox is unable to befriend a tiger, then the fox should create an illusion of close association with the tiger by carefully trailing behind the cat while boasting of the deep friendship they share. In this way, he creates an impression that his well being is of great concern to the tiger.

Chin-Ning Chu

First meditate, be blissful, then much love will happen of its own accord. Then being with others is beautiful and being alone is also beautiful. Then it is simple, too. You dont depend on others and you dont make others dependent on you. Then it is always a friendship, a friendliness. It never becomes a relationship, it is always a relatedness. You relate, but you dont create a marriage. Marriage is out of fear, relatedness is out of love. You relate; as long as things are moving beautifully, you share. And if you see that the moment has come to depart because your paths separate at this crossroad, you say good-bye with great gratitude for all that the other has been to you, for all the joys and all the pleasures and all the beautiful moments that you have shared with the other. With no misery, with no pain, you simply separate.

Osho

Flattery is like friendship in show, but not in fruit

Socrates

The longer we live the more we think and the higher the value we put on friendship and tenderness towards parents and friends.

Samuel Johnson

I think the best friendships are those that can stand the test of time, where the friendship is based more on who you are than on what you do or what you have.

Steve Pavlina

Friendship and money: oil and water.

Mario Puzo

Love is like the wild rose-briar; Friendship like the holly-tree. The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms, But which will bloom most constantly?

Emily Jane Bront

Accountability in friendship is the equivalent of love without strategy.

Anita Brookner

Sympathy constitutes friendship; but in love there is a sort of antipathy, or opposing passion. Each strives to be the other, and both together make up one whole.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The worst solitude is to be destitute of sincere friendship.

Francis Bacon

Friendship, like love, is destroyed by long absence, though it may be increased by short intermissions

Samuel Johnson

Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words.

George Eliot
