In your friendships and in your enmities let your confidence and your hostilities have certain bounds; make not the former dangerous, nor the latter irreconcilable. There are strange vicissitudes in business.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

Real friendship is a slow grower, and never thrives unless engrafted upon a stock of known and reciprocal merit.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

The most familiar and intimate habitudes, connections, friendships, require a degree of good-breeding both to preserve and cement them.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

Such is friendship, that through it we love places and seasons; for as bright bodies emit rays to a distance, and flowers drop their sweet leaves on the ground around them, so friends impart favor even to the places where they dwell. With friends even poverty is pleasant. Words cannot express the joy which a friend imparts; they only can know who have experienced. A friend is dearer than the light of heaven, for it would be better for us that the sun were exhausted than that we should be without friends.
      - St. John Chrysostom

Friendship is given us by nature, not to favor vice, but to aid virtue.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Friendship is infinitely better than kindness.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Friendship is the only thing in the world concerning the usefulness of which all mankind are agreed.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Friendship throws a greater luster on prosperity, while it lightens adversity by sharing in its griefs and anxieties.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

He removes the greatest ornament of friendship who takes away from it respect.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

In friendship we find nothing false or insincere; everything is straightforward, and springs from the heart.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Nature loves nothing solitary, and always reaches out to something, as a support, which ever in the sincerest friend is most delightful.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Friendship makes prosperity brighter, while it lightens adversity by sharing its griefs and anxieties.
  [Lat., Secundas res splendidiores facit amicitia, et adversas partiens communicansque leviores.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        De Amicitia (VI)

It is a common saying that many pecks of salt must be eaten before the duties of friendship can be discharged.
  [Lat., Vulgo dicitur multos modios salis simul edendos esse, ut amicitia munus expletum sit.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        De Amicitia (XIX)

Friendship hath the skill and observation of the best physician, the diligence and vigilance of the best nurse, and the tenderness and patience of the best mother.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

A woman's friendship borders more closely on love than man's. Men affect each other in the reflection of noble or friendly acts; whilst women ask fewer proofs and more signs and expressions of attachment.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Friendship is a sheltering tree.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Youth and Age

What a delight it is to make friends with someone you have despised!
      - Sidonie Gabrielle Colette,
        Earthly Paradise: An Autobiography

An act, by which we make one friend and one enemy, is a losing game; because revenge is a much stronger principle than gratitude.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

It is true that friendship often ends in love, but love in friendship never.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

The firmest friendships have been formed in mutual adversity; as iron is most strongly united by the fiercest flame.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

True friendship is like sound health, the value of it is seldom known until it be lost.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

There are three friendships which are advantageous, and three which are injurious. Friendship with the upright; friendship with the sincere; and friendship with the man of much observation: these are advantageous. Friendship with the man of specious airs; friendship with the insinuatingly soft; and friendship with the glib-tongued: these are injurious.
      - Confucius

No one person can possibly combine all the elements supposed to make up what everyone means by friendship.
      - Francis Marion Crawford

The light of friendship is like the light of phosphorus,--seen plainest when all around is dark.
      - Grace Noll Crowell (Mrs. Norman H. Crowell)

Then come the wild weather, come sleet or come snow,
  We will stand by each other, however it blow.
      - Simon Dach, Annie of Tharaw (l. 7),
        (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's translation)
