Friendship.Texas State Motto (Quotes)
Fair gift of Friendship! and her ever bright And faultless image! welcome now them art, In thy pure loveliness thy robes of white, Speaking a moral to the feeling heart; Unscattered by heats by wintry blasts unmoved Thy strength thus tested and thy charms improved.Anna Peyre Dinnies, To a White Chrysanthemum, reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 117.

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.

For Maggie has written a letter to give me my choice between The wee little whimpering Love and the great god Nick O'Teen. And I have been servant of Love for barely a twelvemonth clear, But I have been priest of Partagas a matter of seven year. And the gloom of my bachelor days is flecked with the cherry light Of stumps that I burned to Friendship, and pleasure and work and fight.rudyard kipling

Conformity to the world has in all ages proved the ruin of the church. It is utterly impossible to live in nearness to God, and in Friendship with the world.Rowland Hill, p. 621. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
To this sad shrine, whoe'er thou art! draw near! Here lies the friend most lov'd, the son most dear; Who ne'er knew joy but Friendship might divide, Or gave his father grief but when he died.Alexander Pope, Epitaph on Harcourt; reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 232.
