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
Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.Red Cross Speech, New York (18 May 1918).
Friendship itself prompts it (Government of the U. S.) to say to the Imperial Government (Germany) that repetition by the commanders of German naval vessels of acts in contravention of those rights (neutral) must be regarded by the Government of the United States, when they affect American citizens, as deliberately unfriendly.Secretary of War Lansing. Reply to the German Lusitania Note (July 21, 1915). Quotes reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 841-60.
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
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
President Roosevelt and President Truman and President Eisenhower had the same experience, they all made the effort to get along with the Russians. But every time, finally it failed. And the reason it failed was because the Communists are determined to destroy us, and regardless of what hand of Friendship we may hold out or what arguments we may put up, the only thing that will make that decisive difference is the strength of the United States.john f. kennedy
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.
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).
Youth fades; love droops, the leaves of Friendship fall; A mother's secret hope outlives them all.Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., A Mother's Secret
Anacharsis coming to Athens, knocked at Solon's door, and told him that he, being a stranger, was come to be his guest, and contract a Friendship with him; and Solon replying, "It is better to make friends at home," Anacharsis replied, "Then you that are at home make Friendship with me."Life of Solon.
