{ else }   Blog: What Are Friends For...  


Kahlil Gibran:


No human relation gives one possession in another...every two souls are absolutely different. In friendship and in love, the two side by side raise hands together to find what one cannot reach alone


Thomas Aquinas:


Love takes up where knowledge leaves off



Alice Walker:


No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.



Bertrand Russell:


A sense of duty is useful in work, but offensive in personal relations. People wish to be liked, not be endured with patient resignation.



Charlie Daniels:


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.



E.R. Bulwer-Lytton:


It is difficult to say who do you the most mischief: enemies with the worst intentions or friends with the best.



Ecclesiasticus 6:14:


A faithful friend is a strong defense: and he that hath found such an one hath found a treasure.



Edgar Watson Howe:

When a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.


Elie Wiesel:


Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love. Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.



Ella Wheeler Wilcox:

All love that has not friendship for its base,
Is like a mansion built upon the sand.



George Santayana:

The loneliest woman in the world is a woman without a close woman friend.

The Life of Reason, 1905-1906




Katherine Mansfield:

I always felt that the great high privilege, relief and comfort of friendship was that one had to explain nothing.



Margaret Guenther:

[W]e all need friends with whom we can speak of our deepest concerns, and who do not fear to speak the truth in love to us.


Maya Angelou:

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.


Rachel Naomi Remen:

The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.



Ralph Waldo Emerson, adapted:

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.



Rollo May:

There is an energy field between humans. And, when we reach out in passion, it is met with an answering passion and changes the relationship forever.



Samuel Coleridge:

Friendship is a sheltering tree.



Unknown:

Love is blind, but friendship closes its eyes.


W. Somerset Maugham:

It's no good trying to keep up old friendships. It's painful for both sides. The fact is, one grows out of people, and the only thing is to face it.


William Blake:

It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.
