Kindred weaknesses induce friendships as often as kindred virtues.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

We should remember that it is quite as much a part of friendship to be delicate in its demands as to be ample in its performances.
      - John Frederick Boyes

Thy presence sweet
  Still through long years of vigil I may share,
    For if from that enchanted spirit-land
      Thy healthful thought into my soul may shine
        (E'en though thy voice be still, and cold thy hand,)
          To lift my life and make it pure as thine;
            Then, though thy place on earth a void must be;
              Beloved friend, thou art not dead to me.
      - Hjalmar Hjorth Boyesen

Faith in friendship is the noblest part.
      - Roger Boyle, Baron Broghill and 1st Earl of Orrery,
        The History of Henry Fifth

When the first time of love is over, there comes a something better still. Then comes that other love; that faithful friendship which never changes, and which will accompany you with its calm light through the whole of life. It is only needful to place yourself so that if it may come, and then it comes of itself. And then everything turns and changes itself to the best.
      - Fredrika Bremer

If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship, we must love friends for their sake rather than for our own.
      - Charlotte Bronte (used pseudonym Currer Bell)

  Grasps at hand, eye lights eye in good friendship,
    And great hearts expand
      And grow one in the sense of this world's life.
      - Robert Browning, Saul (st. 7)

Love and esteem are the first principles of friendship, which always is imperfect where either of these two is wanting.
      - Eustace Budgell

The friendship between great men is rarely intimate or permanent. It is a Boswell that most appreciates a Johnson. Genius has no brother, no co-mate; the love it inspires is that of a pupil or a son.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
  And never brought to mind?
    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
      And days o' lang syne?
      - Robert Burns, Auld Lang Syne,
        Burns refers to these words as an old folk song

False friendship, like the ivy, decays and ruins the walls it embraces; but true friendship gives new life and animation to the object it supports.
      - Robert Burton

Friendship is Love without his wings!
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        L' Amitie est l' Amour sans Ailes
         (st. 1)

In friendship I early was taught to believe;
  . . . .
    I have found that a friend may profess, yet deceive.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Lines addressed to the Rev. J.T. Becher
         (st. 7)

A sudden thought strikes me, let us swear eternal friendship.
      - George Canning

Oh, how you wrong our friendship, valiant youth.
  With friends there is not such a word as debt:
    Where amity is ty'd with band of truth,
      All benefits are there in common set.
      - Lady Elizabeth Carew (Cary or Carey),

How were friendship possible? In mutual devotedness to the good and true; otherwise impossible, except as armed neutrality or hollow commercial league. A man, be the heavens ever praised, is sufficient for himself; yet were ten men, united in love, capable of being and of doing what ten thousand singly would fail in. Infinite is the help man can yield to man.
      - Thomas Carlyle

How to win friends and influence people.
      - Dale Carnegie, title of a book

Two may talk together under the same roof for many years, yet never really meet; and two others at first speech are old friends.
      - Mary H. Catherwood,
        Mackinac and Lake Stories--Marianson

Agreement in likes and dislikes--this, and this only, is what constitutes true friendship.
      - Catiline (Lucius Sergius Catilina),
        The War with Catiline by Sallust

He who disguises tyranny, protection, or even benefits under the air and name of friendship reminds me of the guilty priest who poisoned the sacramental bread.
      - Sebastien-Roch-Nicolas de Chamfort

Women bestow on friendship only what they borrow from love.
      - Sebastien-Roch-Nicolas de Chamfort

Friendship heightens all our affections. We receive all the ardor of our friend in addition to our own. The communication of minds gives to each the fervor of each.
      - William Ellery Channing

Is mutual service the bond of friendship?
      - William Ellery Channing

Sincerity, truth, faithfulness, come into the very essence of friendship.
      - William Ellery Channing

As friendship must be founded on mutual esteem, it cannot long exist among the vicious; for we soon find ill company to be like a dog, which dirts those the most whom he loves the best.
      - Paul Chatfield (a/k/a Horace Smith)
