The friend of my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity.
The best things in life are never rationed. Friendship, loyalty, love do not require coupons.
Strangers are what friends are made of.
Nothing hurts more than the friendly letter that one never got around to writing.
A brother may not be a friend, but a friend will always be a brother.
He is my friend, that succoreth me, not he that pitieth me.
So live that your friends can defend you, but never have to.
Tell me with whom thou art found, and I will tell thee who thou art.
A man is judged by his friends, for the wise and the foolish have never agreed.
In prosperity it is very easy to find a friend; in adversity, nothing is so difficult.
