Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness.
The most called-upon prerequisite of a friend is an accessible ear.
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.
Love is friendship set on fire.
A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
