A friendship that can be ended didn't ever start.
Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.Red Cross Speech, New York (18 May 1918).
Time, which strengthens Friendship, weakens Love.Jean de La Bruyère, The Characters or Manners of the Present Age (1688), Chapter IV.
There is something in the unselfish and self-sacrificing love of a brute, which goes directly to the heart of him who has had frequent occasion to test the paltry Friendship and gossamer fidelity of mere Man.1843 'The Black Cat', in the United States Saturday Post,19 Aug.
No wearisome days, no sorrowful nights; no hunger or thirst; no anxiety or fears; no envies, no jealousies, no breaches of Friendship, no sad separations, no distrusts or forebodings, no self-reproaches, no enmities, no bitter regrets, no tears, no heartaches; "And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away."randolph sinks foster
I only included things that everybody likes, like violence, flowers, children, women, Friendship and death.Talking about his Ninja Gaiden II game in the Wall Street Journal, June 5, 2008, p. B8, "The Game Turns Serious"
Love can't flourish in a "society" based on money and meaningless work, but rather requires complete economic, as well as personal, freedom, leisure time and the opportunity to engage in intensely absorbing, emotionally satisfying activities which, when shared with those you respect, lead to deep Friendship, but which our "society" provides practically no opportunity to engage in.valerie solanas
I had a truly horrible dream last night … [Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mike Tyson and I] were on our way to a TV studio for a debate about his long-time working Friendship with the powerful Bush family from Texas and how it might affect the next Bush presidency when The Terminator seizes power in Sacramento and tries to hand over the state's 54 electoral votes by election day in 2004. That is the basic plan behind Schwarzenegger running. He doesn't want to be Governor, he just wants the electoral votes to go to Bush this time.hunter s. thompson
Ghosts of melodious prophesyings rave Round every spot where trod Apollo's foot; Bronze clarions awake, and faintly bruit, Where long ago a giant battle was; And, from the turf, a lullaby doth pass In every place where infant Orpheus slept. Feel we these things? that moment have we stept Into a sort of oneness, and our state Is like a floating spirit's. But there are Richer entanglements, enthralments far More self-destroying, leading, by degrees, To the chief intensity: the crown of these Is made of love and Friendship, and sits high Upon the forehead of humanity.john keats
A man may act as proxy for his own relatives; the ordinances of the Gospel which were laid out before the foundations of the world have thus been fulfilled by them, and we may be baptized for those whom we have much Friendship for; but it must first be revealed to the man of God, lest we should run too far.smith, joseph, jr.
In my judgment the college fraternity has been of inestimable value in making men across the years... It is natural for men to come together in compatible, mutual Friendship, and when they do so under the high ideals of a fraternity, it proves to be most beneficial.Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Phi Gamma Delta; Author & Minister (p. 17)
It is, therefore, with the sincerest pleasure I have observed on the part of the British government various manifestations of a just and friendly disposition towards us; we wish to cultivate peace and Friendship with all nations, believing that course most conducive to the welfare of our own; it is natural that these friendships should bear some proportion to the common interests of the parties.Thomas Jefferson, letter to Sir John Sinclair, July 31, 1816.—The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, ed. Andrew A. Lipscomb, vol. 15, p. 54 (1904).
The wealth required by nature is limited and is easy to procure; but the wealth required by vain ideals extends to infinity . (15) Of all the means which wisdom acquires to ensure happiness throughout the whole of life , by far the most important is Friendship .Variant: Natural justice is a pledge of reciprocal benefit, to prevent one man from harming or being harmed by another.
