It isn’t kind to cultivate a friendship just so one will have an audience.
If I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country.
It’s the company, not the cooking, that makes a meal.
A friend is a gift you give yourself.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.
We are like sculptors, constantly carving out of others the image we long for, need, love or desire, often against reality, against their benefit, and always, in the end, a disappointment, because it does not fit them.
A friend is one before whom I may think aloud.
So long as we live among men, let us cherish humanity.
Friends were like clothes: fine while they lasted but eventually they wore thin or you grew out of them.
I think that when you invite people to your home, you invite them to yourself.
