Friendship Quotes Quotes

Friendship is not always the sequel of obligation

Samuel Johnson

The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.

Hubert H. Humphrey

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

One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion

Simone De Beauvoir

Racism is something that people can transcend through friendship.

Vincent F. Rocchio

Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say "what should be the reward of such sacrifices?" Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!

Samuel Adams

Friendship with a man is friendship with his virtue, and does not admit of assumptions of superiority.


Friendship, compounded of esteem and love, derives from one its tenderness and its permanence from the other.

Samuel Johnson

Marriage is the highest state of friendship. If happy, it lessens our cares by dividing them, at the same time that it doubles our pleasures by mutual participation.

Samuel Richardson

If goodness were only a theory, it were a pity it should be lost to the world. There are a number of things, the idea of which is a clear gain to the mind. Let people, for instance, rail at friendship, genius, freedom, as long as they will --the very names of these despised qualities are better than anything else that could be substituted for them, and embalm even the most envenomed satire against them.

William Hazlitt

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

Oscar Wilde

The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.

Hubert Humphrey

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.
