Thou mayest be sure that he who will in private tell thee of thy faults is thy friend, for he adventures thy dislike and doth hazard thy hatred.

The vital air of friendship is composed of confidence. Friendship perishes in proportion as this air diminishes.
      - Joseph Roux

To have the same desires and the same aversion is assuredly a firm bond of friendship.

      - William Shakespeare

Most friendship is faining, most loving mere folly:
  Then, heigh-ho, the holly.
    This life is most jolly.
      - William Shakespeare, As You Like It
         (Amiens at II, vii)

By heaven, methinks it were an easy leap
  To pluck bright honor from the pale-faced moon,
    Or dive into the bottom of the deep,
      Where fathom line could never touch the ground,
        And pluck up drowned honor by the locks,
          So he that doth redeem her thence might wear
            Without corrival all her dignities;
              But out upon this half-faced fellowship!
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Hotspur at I, iii)

Call you that backing of friends? A plague upon such backing! Give me them that will face me.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Falstaff at II, iv)

Friendship is constant in all other things
  Save in the office and affairs of love.
    Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongues;
      Let every eye negotiate for itself
        And trust no agent; for beauty is a witch
          Against whose charms faith melteth into blood.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing
         (Claudio at II, i)
