No friendship is so cordial or so delicious as that of girl for girl; no hatred so intense and immovable as that of woman for woman.
      - Walter Savage Landor

Virtue is presupposed in friendship.
      - Walter Savage Landor

Friendship is a traffic wherein self-love always proposes to be the gainer.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

We love everything on our own account; we even follow our own taste and inclination when we prefer our friends to ourselves; and yet it is this preference alone that constitutes true and perfect friendship.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

What is commonly called friendship is no more than a partnership; a reciprocal regard for one another's interests, and an exchange of good offices; in a word, a mere traffic, wherein self-love always proposes to be a gainer.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Dread more the blunderer's friendship than the calumniator's enmity.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

The qualities of your friends will be those of your enemies,--cold friends, cold enemies; half friends, half enemies; fervid enemies, warm friends.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

Friendship should be in the singular; it can be no more plural than love.
      - Ninon de L'Enclos (real name Anne L'Enclos)

Come back! ye friendships long departed!
  That like o'erflowing streamlets started,
    And now are dwindled, one by one,
      To stony channels in the sun!
        Come back! ye friends, whose lives are ended,
          Come back, with all that light attended,
            Which seemed to darken and decay
              When ye arose and went away!
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Christus
         (pt. II, The Golden Legend, I)

"You will forgive me, I hope, for the sake of the friendship between us,
  Which is too true and too sacred to be so easily broken!"
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        The Courtship of Miles Standish--Priscilla
         (pt. VI, l. 22)

There is no friendship between those associated in power; he who rules will always be impatient of an associate.
  [Lat., Nulla fides regni sociis omnisque potestas
    Impatiens consortis erit.]
      - Lucanus (Marcus Annaeus Lucan), Pharsalia
         (I, 92)

Friendship will not stand the strain of very much good advice for very long.

There is this important difference between love and friendship: while the former delights in extremes and opposites, the latter demands equalities.
      - Mme. Francoise d'Aubigne de Maintenon

To what gods is sacrificed that rarest and sweetest thing upon earth, friendship? To vanity and to interest.
      - Chretien Guillaume Malesherbes

I always felt that the great high privilege, relief and comfort of friendship was that one had to explain nothing.
      - Katherine Mansfield

A summer friendship, whose flattering leaves, that shadowed us in our prosperity, with the least gust drop off in the autumn of adversity.
      - Philip Massinger

It is important to our friends to believe that we are unreservedly frank with them, and important to friendship that we are not.
      - Mignon McLaughlin

Friendship at first sight, like love at first sight is said to be the only truth.
      - Herman Melville

We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow-men; and along those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and come back to us as effects.
      - Herman Melville

Friendship with a man is friendship with his virtue, and does not admit of assumptions of superiority.
      - Mencius

Friendship is a cadence of divine melody melting through the heart.
      - Charles Arundell St. John-Mildmay

Money couldn't buy friends but you got a better class of enemy.
      - Spike Milligan

My fair one, let us swear an eternal friendship.

Friendship that possesses the whole soul, and there rules and sways with an absolute sovereignty, can admit of no rival.
