Friendship is seldom lasting, but between equals, or where superiority is reduced by some equivalent advantage.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Friendship, like love, is destroyed by long absence, though it may be increased by short intermissions. What we have missed long enough to want it, we value more when it is regained; but that which has been lost till it is forgotten will be found at last with little gladness, and with still less if a substitute has supplied the place.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Life has no pleasure higher or nobler than that of friendship.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Men become friends by a community of pleasures.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

That friendship may be at once fond and lasting, there must not only be equal virtue on each part, but virtue of the same kind; not only the same end must be proposed but the same means must be approved by both.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

The feeling of friendship is like that of being comfortably filled with roast beef, love, like being enlivened with champagne.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

True happiness consists not in the multitude of friends, but in the worth and choice.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

We may have many acquaintances, but we can have but few friends; this made Aristotle say that he that hath many friends hath none.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

If a man does not make new acquaintances, as he advances through life, he will soon find himself left alone. A man, Sir, should keep his friendship in constant repair.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature"),
        Boswell's Life of Johnson

Friendship, peculiar boon of Heaven,
  The noble mind's delight and pride,
    To men and angles only given,
      To all the lower world denied.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature"),
        Friendship--An Ode

The endearing elegance of female friendship.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature"),
        Rasselas (ch. XLVI)

He who has not the weakness of friendship has not the strength.
      - Joseph Joubert

We shall always keep a spare corner in our heads to give passing hospitality to our friends' opinion.
      - Joseph Joubert

Friendship is too pure a pleasure for a mind cankered with ambition, or the lust of power and grandeur.
      - Junius (pseudonym, possibly of Sir Philip Francis)

Friendship between two women is always a plot against another one.
      - Alphonse Karr (Jean Baptiste Alphonse Karr)

Doubtless a good general rule for close friendships, where confidences are freely exchanged, is that what one is not informed about, one may not inquire about.
      - Louis Kronenberger

Friendship * * * is a long time in forming, it is of slow growth, through many trials and months of familiarity.
      - Jean de la Bruyere

In Friendship we only see those faults which may be prejudicial to our friends. In love we see no faults but those by which we suffer ourselves.
      - Jean de la Bruyere,
        The Characters or Manners of the Present Age
         (ch. V)

Love and friendship exclude each other.
      - Jean de la Bruyere,
        The Characters or Manners of the Present Age
         (ch. V)

Pure friendship is something which men of an inferior intellect can never taste.
      - Jean de la Bruyere,
        The Characters or Manners of the Present Age
         (ch. V)

Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which strengthens with the setting sun of life.
      - Jean de la Fontaine

Rare as is true love, true friendship is rarer.
      - Jean de la Fontaine

Perfect friendship puts us under the necessity of being virtuous. As it can only be preserved among estimable persons, it forces us to resemble them. You find in friendship the surety of good counsel, the emulation of good example, sympathy in our griefs, succor in our distress.
      - Madame Anne Therese de Lambert

Friendships are the purer and the more ardent, the nearer they come to the presence of God, the Sun not only of righteousness but of love.
      - Walter Savage Landor

Let me take up your metaphor. Friendship is a vase, which, when it is flawed by heat or violence or accident, may as well be broken at once; it can never be trusted after. The more graceful and ornamental it was, the more clearly do we discern the hopelessness of restoring it to its former state. Coarse stones, if they are fractured, may be cemented again; precious stones, never.
      - Walter Savage Landor
