The friendship between a man and a woman which does not lead to marriage or desire for marriage may be a life long experience of the greatest value to themselves and to all their circle of acquaintance and of activity; but for this type of friendship both a rare man and a rare woman are needed. Perhaps it should be added that either the man or the woman thus deeply bound in lifelong friendship who seeks marriage must find a still rarer man or woman to wed, to make such a three cornered comradeship a permanent success.
A brief candle,both ends burning An endless mile, a bus wheel turning A friend to share the lonesome times A handshake and a sip of wine So say it loud and let it ring We are all a part of everything The future, present and the past Fly on proud bird You're free at last
Silence is the true friend that never betrays.
To cement a new friendship, especially between foreigners or persons of a different social world, a spark with which both were secretly charged must fly from person to person, and cut across the accidents of place and time.

Friendship is a plant of slow growth and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.
He that is a friend to himself, know; he is a friend to all.
True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not depend on darkness and ignorance.
It is one of the severest tests of friendship to tell your friend his faults. So to love a man that you cannot bear to see a stain upon him, and to speak painful truth through loving words, that is friendship.
Business, you know, may bring money, but friendship hardly ever does.
If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other.

Alone, we slip into a self reinforcing haze. A place of isolation in which the only voice we hear is our own, and we become more and more convinced that our world view, what we see, is the only one that makes sense, the only one that is correct. Living in our own heads we build empires, cast down the unworthy, glory in our intellect. We become a floating island of ego, living within ourselves and living only for ourselves. Other people are the only antidote to this. Friendship offers not only companionship, love, and fun, but it offers a reflector as well. Our ideas, prejudices, hatreds, misconceptions and brilliant notions bounce off another human being and are reflected back. We are forced to face ideas other than our own. Our mental lives become less rigid, we gain the ability to grow, to change our minds and to understand the perspectives of others.
