Friendship is the greatest honesty and ingenuity in the world.
      - Jeremy Taylor

I account that one of the greatest demonstrations of real friendship, that a friend can really endeavor to have his friend advanced in honor, in reputation, in the opinion of wit or learning, before himself.
      - Jeremy Taylor

No friendship can excuse a sin.
      - Jeremy Taylor

The dearest thing in nature is not comparable to the dearest thing of friendship.
      - Jeremy Taylor

Friendship is like rivers, and the strand of seas, and the air, common to all the world; but tyrants, and evil customs, wars, and want of love, have made them proper and peculiar.
      - Jeremy Taylor,
        A Discourse of the Nature, Measures, and Offices of Friendship

Nature and religion are the bands of friendship, excellence and usefulness are its great endearments.
      - Jeremy Taylor,
        A Discourse of the Nature, Measures, and Offices of Friendship

Some friendships are made by nature, some by contract, some by interest, and some by souls.
      - Jeremy Taylor,
        A Discourse of the Nature, Measures, and Offices of Friendship

The greatest medicine is a true friend.
      - Sir William Temple

O friendship, equal-poised control,
  O heart, with kindliest motion warm,
    O sacred essence, other form,
      O solemn ghost, O crowned soul!
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam (LXXXV)

We are most of us very lonely in this world; you who have any who love you, cling to them and thank God.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

True friends visit us in prosperity only when invited, but in adversity they come without invitation.
      - Theophrastus

Friendship is the unspeakable joy and blessing that result to two or more individuals who from constitution sympathize. Such natures are liable to no mistakes, but will know each other through thick and thin. Between two by nature alike and fitted to sympathize, there is no veil, and there can be no obstacle. Who are the estranged? Two friends explaining.
      - Henry David Thoreau

We inspire friendship in men when we have contracted friendship with the gods.
      - Henry David Thoreau

We only need to be as true to others as we are to ourselves, that there may be grounds enough for friendship.
      - Henry David Thoreau

What is commonly called friendship even is only a little more honor among rogues.
      - Henry David Thoreau

A Friend is one who incessantly pays us the compliment of expecting from us all the virtues, and who can appreciate them in us.
      - Henry David Thoreau,
        A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers--Wednesday

Once let friendship be given that is born of God, nor time nor circumstance can change it to a lessening; it must be mutual growth, increasing trust, widening faith, enduring patience, forgiving love, unselfish ambition,--an affection built before the throne, that will bear the test of time and trial.
      - Allan Throckmorton

Friendship's said to be a plant of tedious growth, its root composed of tender fibers, nice in their taste, cautious in spreading.
      - Sir John Vanbrugh (Vanburgh)

Friendship is the marriage of the soul.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

Friendship, gift of heaven, delight of great souls; friendship which kings, so distinguished for ingratitude, are unhappy enough not to know.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

It seems to me that a truly lovable woman is thereby unfitted for friendship, and that a woman fitted for friendship is but little fitted for love.
      - Alexander Walker

No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.
      - Alice Walker

He is happy that hath a true friend at his need; but he is more truly happy that hath no need of his friend.
      - Arthur Warwick

When I see leaves drop from their trees in the beginning of autumn, just such, think I, is the friendship of the world. Whilst the sap of maintenance lasts my friends swarm in abundance; but in the winter of my need they leave me naked.
      - Arthur Warwick

The friendship I have conceived will not be impaired by absence; but it may be no unpleasing circumstance to brighten the chain by a renewal of the covenant.
      - George Washington
