Letter to Joseph Gillespie (July 13, 1849).
Cultivate friendships. If you don’t have time to cultivate all of them, plow under every fifth one and collect your bonus.gracie allen
Though our own hearts break, we cannot flinch; these are new times, sir. There is a misty plot afoot so subtle we should be criminal to cling to old respect and ancient friendships. I have seen too many frightful proofs in court the Devil is alive in Salem, and we dare not quail to follow wherever the accusing finger points!Arthur Miller
A man's friendships are, like his will, invalidated by marriage.
It's no good trying to keep up old friendships. It's painful for both sides. The fact is, one grows out of people, and the only thing is to face it.
Many a time,… from a bad beginning great friendships have sprung up.terence
How much of our literature, our political life, our friendships and love affairs, depend on being able to talk peacefully in a bar!john wain
Time for work,—yet takeMuch holiday for arts and friendships sake.
Twenty years ago no one could have imagined the effects the Internet would have: entire relationships flourish, friendships prosper…there’s a vast new intimacy and accidental poetry, not to mention the weirdest porn. The entire human experience seems to unveil itself like the surface of a new planet.j. g. ballard
Childhood in large parts of modern Britain, at any rate, has been replaced by premature adulthood, or rather adolescence. Children grow up very fast but not very far. That is why it is possible for 14 year olds now to establish friendships with 26 year olds - because they know by the age of 14 all they are ever going to know.anthony daniels
At some point in my life I realized I knew only celebrities, I didn't know any real people. I think it was a master stroke of Fate that in researching the greatest celebrity of them all, I would at last be meeting real people, finding them more extraordinary than celebrities; fascinated by them all and enjoying enduring friendships with some.elaine dundy
I think that it is a fallacy to suppose that helpful cooperation in the future will be assured by the attempted compulsion of an inflexible rule. Rather will such cooperation depend upon the fostering of firm friendships springing from an appreciation of community ideals, interests, and purposes, and such friendships are more likely to be promoted by freedom of conference than by the effort to create hard and fast engagements.charles evans hughes
I can truly say with Shelley I have been fortunate in friendships: that I have been no less fortunate in my enemies than in my friends.algernon charles swinburne
Kipps was unprepared for the unpleasant truth; that the path of social advancement is and must be strewn with broken friendships.
Time for work, yet take Much holiday for arts and friendships sake.
Blackburn also took an interest in the dynamics of friendships between men and the psychological games that can become part of this.
I can remember laughter and a lot of it, and the warmth of friendships and a lot of it, and it never went away.
My chapter house was a place where deep friendships were formed. The bond of brotherhood within the chapters was always a sustaining force and an urge to do a better job scholastically and otherwise in campus life. The traits of character which were nurtured there ripened and increased my sense of being useful in later life.
I took a great deal more from my fraternity than I gave but what I took was a very great deal companionship of the highest order, self-confidence born of belonging to a group of which I was proud, enrichment of my personal life, which gave all my college career added dimension, and even an extra bond to several life-long friendships that already existed.
There are friendships imprinted in our hearts that will never be diminished by time and distanceDodinsky
The finest friendships are between those who can do without each other.

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.
And so it is that I carry with me from this State to that high and lonely office to which I now succeed more than fond memories and fast friendships. The enduring qualities of Massachusetts the common threads woven by the Pilgrim and the Puritan, the fisherman and the farmer, the Yankee and the immigrant will not be and could not be forgotten in the Nation's Executive Mansion. They are an indelible part of my life, my convictions, my view of the past, my hopes for the future.
Variant translation: It is the nature of ambition to make men liars and cheats, to hide the truth in their breasts, and show, like jugglers, another thing in their mouths, to cut all friendships and enmities to the measure of their own interest, and to make a good countenance without the help of good will.
friendships begin with liking or gratituderoots that can be pulled up.
