In Friendship, silence is more important than words.

True friends 
are those who 
really know you…
BUT love you anyway.
edna buchanan
You can make more friends
in two months 
by becoming interested in other people 
than you can in two years 
by trying to get other people 
interested … in you.

“The real test of friendship is: can you literally do nothing with the other person?
Can you enjoy those moments of life that are utterly simple?” 
eugene kennedy 
“We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; 
and a widower that man who has lost his wife. 
But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, 
by what name do we call him? 
Here every language is silent 
and holds its peace in impotence.” 
joseph roux
Friendship multiplies the good in life and divides the evil. 
baltasar gracian 
No birth certificate is issued when friendship is born. There is nothing tangible. 
There is just a feeling that your life is different and that your capacity to love and care has miraculously been enlarged without any effort on your part. 
It’s like having a tiny apartment and somebody moves in with you. But instead of becoming cramped and crowded,  the space expands, and you discover rooms you never knew you had until your friend moved in with you. 
steve tesich


A friend is someone we turn to when our spirits need a lift.

A friend is someone we treasure, for our friendship is a gift.
A friend is someone who fills our lives with beauty, joy, and grace.
And makes the whole world we live in
a better and happier place.
