How many slams in an old screen door? Depends how loud you shut it. How many slices in a bread? Depends how thin you cut it. How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live ’em. How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give 'em.
- Shel Silverstein
Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.
- Muhammad Ali
Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart.
- Washington Irving
The real test of friendship is can you literally do nothing with the other person? Can you enjoy those moments of life that are utterly simple?
- Eugene Kennedy
A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.
Friendship is like a glass ornament, once it is broken it can rarely be put back together exactly the same way.
- Charles Kingsley
Tis the privilege of friendship to talk nonsense, and to have her nonsense respected.
- Charles Lamb
