A friendship that can be ended didn't ever start.
An ideological movement is a collection of people many of whom could hardly bake a cake, fix a car, sustain a Friendship or a marriage, or even do a quadratic equation, yet they believe they know how to rule the world. The university, in which it is possible to combine theoretical pretension with comprehensive ineptitude, has become the natural habitat of the ideological enthusiast. A kind of adventure playground, carefully insulated from reality in order to prevent absent-minded professors from bumping into things as they explore transcendental realms, has become the institutional base for civilizational self-hatred.kenneth minogue
What you cannot lift before His pure eyes and think of Him while you enjoy, is not for you. Friendship, schemes, plans, ambitions, amusements, speculations, studies, loves, businesses can you call on the name of the Lord while you put these cups to your lips? If not, fling them behind you.Alexander Maclaren, p. 452. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))

Richard Chase declares, "No great poet has written so much bad verse as Emily Dickinson." He blames the Victorian cult of little women for the fact that "two thirds of her work" is seriously flawed: "Her coy and oddly childish poems of nature and female Friendship are products of a time when one of the careers open to women was perpetual childhood." Dickinson's sentimental feminine poems remain neglected by embarrassed scholars. I would maintain, however, that her poetry is a closed system of sexual reference and that the mawkish poems are designed to dovetail with those of violence and suffering.p. 637 (Sexual Personae: Art and Decadence from Nefertiti to Emily Dickinson (1990))
I have long enjoyed the Friendship and companionship of Republicans, because I am by instinct a teacher and I would like to teach them something.Speech to the World's Salesmanship Congress (10 July 1916)
May the hinges of Friendship never rust, or the wings of luve lose a feather.Toast from Dean Ramsey's Reminiscences of Scottish Life.
I had fresh confirmation that acting contrary to present outward interest, from a motive of Divine love and in regard to truth and righteousness, and thereby incurring the resentments of people, opens the way to a treasure better than silver, and to a Friendship exceeding the Friendship of men.p. 24 (The Journal of John Woolman (1774))
"I am among friends. And this Friendship of ours [between Greeks and Serbs] has been proved in practice. And we shall do this in the future as well with words and with deeds."Former President of Greece Konstantinos Stephanopoulos, October 2003
selected by Kalki 2005 I do not believe that Friendship today can flower out can come out of political life. I do believe that if there is something like a political life-to-be to remain for us, in this world of technology then it begins with Friendship. ~ Ivan Illich (died 2 December 2002)SOURCE: The System of the International Organizations of the Communist Countries - Page 36 by Richard Szawlowski - Law - 1976
