From quiet homes and first beginnings,
Out to the undiscovered ends,
There’s nothing worth the wear of winning,
But the laughter and love of friends.
Hilaire Belloc

Friendship is a sheltering tree.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

A true friend walks in
when the rest of the world walks out.
You can always tell a real friend:
when you’ve made a fool of yourself,
he doesn’t think you’ve done a permanent job.
Samuel Johnson

The true way and the sure way to friendship
is through humility,
being open to each other,
accepting each other just as we are,
knowing each other.
Mother Teresa

Friendship is like a bank account;
you cannot continue to draw on it
without making deposits.
Samuel Butler

Friendship is love with understanding.

Your friend is the person who knows all about you
and still likes you.
Elbert Hubbard

The proper office of a friend is
to side with you when you are in the wrong.
Nearly anybody will side with you
when you are in the right.
Mark Twain

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

Laughter is not at all
a bad beginning for friendship.
Oscar Wilde

The Hubbard quote is a favorite. And I've heard people mention that God knows everything about you and still loves you; that quote always reminds me of his unconditional love. Thanks for your comment today at Internet Cafe. I appreciated it much.

I love "friend" quotes. They mean so much to me, my friends and I would be lost without them!
