FRIENDSHIP QUOTES

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,
nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one
when you discover that someone else believes in you
and is willing to trust you with a friendship.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson


Each friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born
until they arrive.
~Anais Nin

A friend is a gift you give yourself.
~Robert Louis Stevenson

A true friend is the greatest blessing
of all blessings.
~Francois de la Rochefoucauld

Nobody sees a flower ~ really~
it is so small it takes time~
we haven't time,
like to have a friend
takes time.
~Georgia O'Keefe

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.
If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
~Dalai Lama

May all beings everywhere
be free from suffering.
May all beings everywhere be fed.
May all beings everywhere be peaceful.
May all beings everywhere be happy.
~Buddhist meditation

My religion is very simple~
my religion is kindness.
~Dalai Lama

You can make more friends in two months
by becoming interested in other people
than you can in two years
by trying to get other people
interested in you.
~Dale Carnegie

You can discover more about a person
in an hour of play
than in a year of conversation.
~Plato

The ornament of a house
are the friends who frequent it.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

There was a definite process by which
one made peopleinto friends,
and it involved talking to them
and listening to them
for hours at a time.
~Rebecca West


No road is too long
with good company.
~Turkish Proverb

Oh I love these and the one that really caught me was: The ornament of a house
are the friends who frequent it.  Not too many friends have been frequently mine lately, but one could call their online journal their house couldn't they.
