A friend in power is a friend lost.
      - Henry Brooks Adams

One friend in a lifetime is much; two are many; three are hardly possible.
      - Henry Brooks Adams

In all thy humors, whether grave or mellow,
  Thou'rt such a touchy, testy, pleasant fellow,
    Hast so much wit and mirth, and spleen about thee,
      That there's no living with thee, nor without thee.
      - Joseph Addison

Talking with a friend is nothing else but thinking aloud.
      - Joseph Addison

Friends are the leaders of the bosom, being more ourselves than we are, and we complement our affections in theirs.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

Our friends interpret the world and ourselves to us, if we take them tenderly and truly.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

A true friend is one soul in two bodies.
      - Aristotle

Between friends there is no need of justice.
      - Aristotle

For his friend is another self.
      - Aristotle

Friends are an aid to the young, to guard them from error; to the elderly, to attend to their wants and to supplement their failing power of action; to those in the prime of life, to assist them to noble deeds.
      - Aristotle

Friends are much better tried in bad fortune than in good.
      - Aristotle

He who hath many friends, hath none.
      - Aristotle

The man with a host of friends who slaps on the back everybody he meets is regarded as the friend of nobody.
      - Aristotle

We should behave to our friends as we would wish our friends to behave to us.
      - Aristotle

I consider beyond all wealth, honor, or even health, is the attachment due to noble souls; because to become one with the good, generous, and true, is to be, in a manner, good, generous, and true yourself.
      - Thomas Arnold

A man dies as often as he loses his friends.
      - Francis Bacon

It is a mere and miserable solitude to want true friends, without which the world is but a wilderness; and even in this scene also of solitude, whosoever in the frame of his nature and affections is unfit for friendship he taketh it of the beast, and not from humanity.
      - Francis Bacon

No receipt openeth the heart but a true friend, to whom you may impart griefs, joys, fears, hopes, suspicions, counsels, and whatsoever lieth upon the heart to oppress it, in a kind of civil shrift or confession.
      - Francis Bacon

Those who want friends to open themselves unto are cannibals of their own hearts.
      - Francis Bacon

On the moral plane, true friends enjoy the same protection as the sense of smell confers upon dogs. They scent the sorrow of their friends, they divine its causes, and they clasp it to their minds and hearts.
      - Honore de Balzac

With regard to the choice of friends, there is little to say; for a friend is never chosen. A secret sympathy, the attraction of a thousand nameless qualities, a charm in the expression of the countenance, even in the voice or manner, a similarity of circumstances--these are the things that begin attachment.
      - Mrs. Anna Letitia Barbauld

No friend's a friend till [he shall] prove a friend.
      - Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher,
        The Faithful Friends
         (act III, sc. 3, l. 50)

Friend, of my infinite dreams
  Little enough endures;
    Little howe'er it seems,
      It is yours, all yours.
      - A.C. (Arthur Christopher) Benson, The Gift

It is better to avenge a friend than to mourn for him.
      - Beowulf VII

Forsake not an old friend; for the new is not comparable to him: a new friend is as new wine; when it is old, thou shalt drink it with pleasure.
      - Bible, Ecclesiasticus (Apocrypha)
         (ch. IX, v. 10)
