Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness.
The most called-upon prerequisite of a friend is an accessible ear.
A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
Love is friendship set on fire.
We need old friends to help us grow old and new friends to help us stay young.
Letty Cottin Pogrebin
Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.
Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.
