There can never be deep peace between two spirits, never mutual respect, until, in their dialogue, each stands for the whole world.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Essays--Of Friendship

Real friendship is shown in times of trouble; prosperity is full of friends.
      - Euripides

Although a friend may remain faithful in misfortune, yet none but the very best and loftiest will remain faithful to us after our errors and our sins.
      - Frederic William Farrar

Make a better friend of every man with whom you come in contact.
      - William Feather

The highest friendship must always lead us to the highest pleasure.
      - Henry Fielding

Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing.
      - Benjamin Franklin

'Tis great Confidence in a Friend to tell him your Faults, greater to tell him his.
      - Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanac

A sudden thought strikes me--Let us swear an eternal friendship.
      - John Hookham Frere, The Rovers (act I)

Let friendship creep gently to a height; if it rush to it, it may soon run itself out of breath.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

Purchase no friends by gifts; when thou ceasest to give such will cease to love.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

To keep up and improve Friendship, thou must be willing to
  receive a Kindness, as well as do one.
      - Thomas Fuller (1),
        Introductio ad Prudentiam

Who friendship with a knave hath made,
  Is judg'd a partner in the trade.
      - John Gay, Old Woman and Her Cats

Friendship, like love, is but a name,
  Unless to one you stint the flame.
      - John Gay, The Hare with Many Friends

To friendship every burden's light.
      - John Gay, The Hare with Many Friends

True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable.
      - Dave Tyson Gentry

Do not allow grass to grow on the road of friendship.
      - Madame Marie Therese Geoffrin

Friendship, like love, is self-forgetful. The only inequality it knows is one that exalts the object, and humbles self.
      - Henry Giles

One is taught by experience to put a premium on those few people who can appreciate you for what you are.
      - Gail Godwin

Friendship is a disinterested commerce between equals.
      - Oliver Goldsmith

Friendship is made up of esteem and pleasure; pity is composed of sorrow and contempt: the mind may for some time fluctuate between them, but it can never entertain both at once.
      - Oliver Goldsmith

O friendship! thou fond soother of the human breast, to thee we fly in every calamity; to thee the wretched seek for succor; on thee the care-tired son of misery fondly relies; from thy kind assistance the unfortunate always hopes relief, and may be sure of--disappointment.
      - Oliver Goldsmith

And what is friendship but a name,
  A charm that lulls to sleep;
    A shade that follows wealth or fame,
      And leaves the wretch to weep?
      - Oliver Goldsmith,
        Edwin and Angelina, or The Hermit
         (st. 19)

With a clear sky, a bright sun, and a gentle breeze, you will have friends in plenty; but let fortune frown, and the firmament be overcast, and then your friends will prove like the strings of the lute, of which you will tighten ten before you find one that will bear the stretch and keep the pitch.
      - Gotthold (pseudonym of Christian Scriver)

Thou learnest no secret until thou knowest friendship, since to the unsound no heavenly knowledge enters.
      - Mohammed Shems-ed-Deen Hafiz (pseudonym of Shams-Ed-Dinmuhammad)

The friendship of high and sanctified spirits loses nothing by death but its alloy; failings disappear, and the virtues of those whose "faces we shall behold no more" appear greater and more sacred when beheld through the shades of the sepulchre.
      - Robert Hall
