Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them? -- Abraham Lincoln
He that is thy friend indeed,
he will help thee in thy need;
If thou sorrow, he will weep;
if thou wake, he cannot sleep.
"To me, fair friend, you never can be old
For as you were when first your eye I eyed,
Such seems your beauty still."
"Friendship is constant in all other things
Save in the office and affairs of love."
"Your wealth is where your friends are."
"A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities. "
--William Arthur Ward
"You can hardly make a friend in a year, but you can easily offend one in an hour."
-- Chinese Proverb
"A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out."
"Better lose a jest than a friend."
