A friendship that can be ended didn't ever start.
Friendship is a disinterested commerce between equals; love, an abject intercourse between tyrants and slaves.Oliver Goldsmith
Friendship requires a leap, not of faith but of regard.mark kingwell
Men shall look on thee and murmur to each other, "Lo! how small Was the gift, and yet how precious! Friendship 's gifts are priceless all."
Time, which strengthens Friendship, weakens Love.
In Friendship false, implacable in hate: Resolved to ruin or to rule the state.john dryden
When I finally gathered, invented, stole, simplified, borrowed, and found a publisher for a clutch of reasonably foolproof recipes, I learned I had friends I hadn't known about—more proof that a mutual dislike can be quite as sound a basis for Friendship as a mutual devotion.Peg Bracken
A passion for politics stems usually from an insatiable need, either for power, or for Friendship and adulation, or a combination of both.fawn brodie
The condition which high Friendship demands is ability to do without it.ralph waldo emerson
It is time to realize that neither socialism, nor Friendship, nor good-neighborliness, nor respect can be produced by bayonets, tanks or blood.eduard shevardnadze
The building of this site would not be possible without the courageous decision by President Bush to liberate Iraq. This building is not only a compound for the embassy but a symbol of the deep Friendship between the two peoples of Iraq and America.jalal talabani
I had eventually come to understand that Friendship was a delicate, gradual process that mustn't be rushed or seized upon but allowed and encouraged to take its course over time. I pictured it as a butterfly, simultaneously beautiful and fragile, that once afloat belonged to the air and any attempt to grab at it would only destroy it.daniel tammet
If you have a grateful heart (which is a miracle amongst you statesmen), show it by directing the bearer to the best wine in town, and pray let not this highest point of sacred Friendship be performed slightly, but go about it with all due deliberation and care, as holy priests to sacrifice, or as discreet thieves to the wary performance of burglary and shop-lifting. Let your well-discerning palate (the best judge about you) travel from cellar to cellar and then from piece to piece till it has lighted on wine fit for its noble choice and my approbation.wilmot, john, 2nd earl of rochester
If we would build on a sure foundation in Friendship, we must love friends for their sake rather than for our own.charlotte brontë
And oh! I shall find how, day by day, All thoughts and things look older; How the laugh of pleasure grows less gay, And the heart of Friendship colder.winthrop mackworth praed
Because most people are not sufficiently employed in themselves, they run about loose, hungering for employment, and satisfy themselves in various supererogatory occupations. The easiest of these occupations, which have all to do with making things already made, is the making of people: it is called the art of Friendship.laura riding
Distance sometimes endears Friendship, and absence sweeteneth it.james howell
Man seeks, in his manhood, not orders, not laws and peremptory dogmas, but counsel from one who is earnest in goodness and faithful in Friendship, making man free.Dietrich Bonhoeffer
The very name "fraternity" breathes Friendship and communion of souls and I am very proud of my membership in Kappa Kappa Psi. ... We, as I have repeated before, must look in the future for talent from the college and high school bands and surely a great many excellent players will no doubt grow out of the instruction received by bright American college men.
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.
Charity, by which God and neighbor are loved, is the most perfect Friendship.thomas aquinas
