A friendship that can be ended didn't ever start.
Why should we not boycott the Soviet Union and its supporters inside the country? If we do so, we can force them to review their stand. Either they give us what we want and what is necessary or they will lose our Friendship.hafez al-assad
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
One friend in a lifetime is much, two are many, three are hardly possible. Friendship needs a certain parallelism of life, a community of thought, a rivalry of aim.henry adams
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
I was the last to consent to the separation, but the separation having been made, and having become inevitable, I have always said that I would be the first to meet the Friendship of the United States as an independent power.George III
Intimate acquaintance must precede real Friendshipanne brontë
Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for Friendship.marilyn monroe
La haine est toujours plus clairvoyante et plus inge nieuse que l'amitie . Hate is always more clairvoyant and ingenious than Friendship.Pierre-Ambroise Choderlos de Laclos
Immortal Spenser, no frailty hath thy fame but the imputation of this idiot's Friendship!thomas nashe
There can be no justification to admit, in any way, the use of armed forced to intervene in the internal affairs of a WTO [Warsaw Treaty Organization] member country. The solving of domestic problems belongs exclusively to the Party and people of each country and any kind of interference can only do harm to the cause of socialism, Friendship and collaboration among the socialist countries.nicolae ceauşescu
He had no principles of religion, virtue, or Friendship. Pleasure, frolic, or extravagant diversion, was all that he laid to heart. He was true to nothing, for he was not true to himself.villiers, george, 2nd duke of buckingham
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.
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
It is a misfortune for Anglo-American Friendship that the two countries are supposed to have a common language. A Frenchman in America is not expected to talk like an American, but an Englishman speaking his mother tongue is thought to be affected and giving himself airs. Or else he is taken for a German or a Dutchman, and is complemented on his grammatical mastery of the language of another nation.
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."
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
