What is friendship in virtuous minds but the concentration of benevolent emotions heightened by respect, and increased by exercise on one or more objects?
      - Robert Hall

Of all intellectual friendships, none are so beautiful as those which subsist between old and ripe men and their younger brethren in science or literature or art. It is, by these private friendships, even more than by public performance, that the tradition of sound thinking and great doing is perpetuated from age to age.
      - Philip Gilbert Hamerton

Friendship close its eye, rather that see the moon eclipst; while malice denies that it is ever at the full.
      - A.W. Hare and J.C. Hare, Guesses at Truth

Friendship is Love, without either flowers or veil.
      - A.W. Hare and J.C. Hare, Guesses at Truth

I have too deeply read mankind to be amused with friendship; it is a name invented merely to betray credulity; it is intercourse of interest, not of souls.
      - William Havard

Friendship is cemented by interest, vanity, or the want of amusement; it seldom implies esteem, or even mutual regard.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

The corpse of friendship is not worth embalming.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

The most violent friendships soonest wear themselves out.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

The soil of friendship is worn out with constant use. Habit may still attach us to each other, but we feel ourselves fettered by it. Old friends might be compared to old married people without the tie of children.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

The youth is better than the old age of friendship.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

There are no rules for friendship. It must be left to itself; we cannot force it any more than love.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

To be capable of steady friendship or lasting love, are the two greatest proofs, not only of goodness of heart, but of strength of mind.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

As the shadow in early morning, is friendship with the wicked; it dwindles hour by hour. But friendship with the good increases, like the evening shadows, till the sun of life sets.
      - Johann Gottfried von Herder

Fast as the rolling seasons bring
  The hour of fate to those we love,
    Each pearl that leaves the broken string
      Is set in Friendship's crown above.
        As narrower grows the earthly chain,
          The circle widens in the sky;
            These are our treasures that remain,
              But those are stars that beam on high.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.,
        Songs of Many Seasons--Our Classmate, F.W.C.

The difficulty is not so great to die for a friend as to find a friend worth dying for.
      - Henry Home, Lord Kames

A generous friendship no cold medium knows,
  Burns with one love, with one resentment glows;
    One should our interests and our passions be,
      My friend must hate the man that injures me.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Iliad
         (bk. IX, l. 725), (Pope's translation)

Your friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
      - Elbert Hubbard

Character is so largely affected by associations that we cannot afford to be indifferent as to who and what our friends are. They write their names in our albums, but they do more, they help make us what we are. Be therefore careful in selecting them; and when wisely selected, never sacrifice them.
      - M. Hulburd

Friendship is a calm and sedate affection, conducted by reason and cemented by habit; springing from long acquaintance and mutual obligations, without jealousies or fears, and without those feverish fits of heat and cold, which cause such an agreeable torment in the amorous passion.
      - David Hume

But friendship is precious, not only in shade, but in the sunshine of life; and thanks to a benevolent arrangement of things, the greater part of life is sunshine.
      - Thomas Jefferson

I find friendship to be like wine, raw when new, ripened with age, the true old man's milk and restorative cordial.
      - Thomas Jefferson

Fix yourself upon the wealthy. In a word, take this for a golden rule through life: Never, never have a friend that is poorer than yourself.
      - Douglas William Jerrold

O friendship! thou divinest alchemist, that man should ever profane thee!
      - Douglas William Jerrold

A man, sir, should keep his friendship in constant repair.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Friendship is not always the sequel of obligation.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")
