True Friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.george washington
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
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
Part of them (citizens of Fiji) wishes to believe that we are all one people and as a nation must move forward together. Another part of them is fearful that the hand they extend in Friendship will be either spurned or crushed.ratu joni madraiwiwi

Even if we take marriage at its lowest, even if we regard it as no more than a sort of Friendship recognised by the police.Robert Louis Stevenson
For thousands of years humankind's finest minds have been struggling with the theoretical problem of finding the forms that would give peoples the possibility, without the greatest of torment, without internecine strife, of living side by side in Friendship and brotherhood. Practically speaking, the first step in this direction is only being taken now, today.mikhail kalinin
A great friend of mine at the beginning of our Friendship (he was himself a poet) said to me very defiantly, "I have to tell you that I loathe children's books." And I said to him, "Well, won't you just read this just for my sake?" And he said grumpily, "Oh, very well, send it to me." I did, and I got a letter back saying: "Why didn't you tell me? Mary Poppins with her cool green core of sex has me enthralled forever."p. l. travers
Every social need, such as the need for Friendship, must be a party to its own satisfaction: I cannot passively find my friend as a ready-made friend; a ready-made human being he may be, but his Friendship for me I must help to create by my own active resolve.william ernest hocking
