The amity that wisdom knits not, folly may easily untie.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The History of Troilus and Cressida
         (Ulysses at II, iii)

Friendship's full of dregs.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of Timon of Athens
         (Apemantus at I, ii)

If thou wilt lend this money, lend it not
  As to thy friends--for when did friendship take
    A breed for barren metal of his friend?
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Antonio at I, iii)

A wound in the friendship of young persons, as in the bark of young trees, may be so grown over as to leave no scar. The case is very different in regard to old persons and old timber. The reason of this may be accountable from the decline of the social passions, and the prevalence of spleen, suspicion, and rancor towards the latter part of life.
      - William Shenstone

Friendship is made fast by interwoven benefits.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

Madam, I have been looking for a person who disliked gravy all my life; let us swear eternal friendship.
      - Sydney Smith, Lady Holland's Memoir
         (p. 257)

Life is to be fortified by many friendships. To love, and to be loved, is the greatest happiness of existence.
      - Sydney Smith,
        Of Friendship--Lady Holland's Memoir

Be slow to fall into friendship; but when thou art in continue firm and constant.
      - Socrates

Think not those faithful who praise all thy words and actions, but those who kindly reprove thy faults.
      - Socrates

Charity commands us, where we know no ill, to think well of all; but friendship that always goes a step higher, gives a man a peculiar right and claim to the good opinion of his friend.
      - Bishop Robert South

Friendship consists properly in mutual offices, and a generous strife in alternate acts of kindness.
      - Bishop Robert South

People young, and raw, and self-natured, think it an easy thing to gain love, and reckon their own friendship a sure price of any man's; but when experience shall have shown them the hardness of most hearts, the hollowness of others, and the baseness and ingratitude of almost all, they will then find that a true friend is the gift of God, and that He only who made hearts can unite them.
      - Bishop Robert South

No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth.
      - Robert Southey

I am a hoarder of two things: documents and trusted friends.
      - Muriel Spark, Curriculum Vitae

Hold friendship in regard.
      - Joannes Stobaeus

Preserve friendship.
      - Joannes Stobaeus

Friendship is like those ancient altars where the unhappy, and even the guilty, found a sure asylum.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

In the opinion of the world marriage ends all, as it does in a comedy. The truth is precisely the reverse; it begins all.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

The ideal of friendship is to feel as one while remaining two.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

I thought you and he were hand-in-glove.
      - Jonathan Swift, Polite Conversation
         (dialogue II)

Friendship is stronger than kindred.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus)

He who cannot feel friendship is alike incapable of love. Let a woman beware of the man who owns that he loves no one but herself.
      - Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord

She is such a good friend that she would throw all her acquaintances into the water for the pleasure of fishing them out again.
      - Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord

A true and noble friendship shrinks not at the greatest of trials.
      - Jeremy Taylor

Friendship is the alloy of our sorrows, the ease of our passions, the discharge of our oppressions, the sanctuary to our calamities, the counselor of our doubts, the clarity of our minds, the emission of our thoughts, exercise and improvement of what we meditate. And although I love my friend because he is worthy, yet he is not worthy if he can do no good.
      - Jeremy Taylor
