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.
My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.
Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘You too? I thought I was the only one.
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?
Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.
Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
Friends are the siblings God never gave us.
We cannot hope to only leave our children a bigger car, a bigger bank account. We must hope to give them a sense of what it means to be a loyal friend.
