We are the captains of our own ships sailing the sea of life, but in times of stormy weather, you will discover true friends when they don’t hesitate to be a lighthouse.
But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent agreement, the greater part of life is sunshine.
A good friend is a connection to life—a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world.
The best time to make friends is before you need them.
I always felt that the great high privilege, relief and comfort of friendship was that one had to explain nothing.
A friend can tell you things you don’t want to tell yourself.
The strongest marriage is between two who seek the same God, the strongest friendship between two who flee the same devil.
There is magic in long-distance friendships. They let you relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound.
It is a good thing to be rich, and it is a good thing to be strong, but it is a better thing to be loved of many friends.
If you’re alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.
A friend accepts us as we are yet helps us to be what we should.
