Friends #1

Monday, October 08, 2012

My best friend who I met in college (which was an awfully long time ago), and who has never in all that time ever lived in the same town as I do but we are still close, has a birthday tomorrow, and I just want to say a few words about friends, or rather, repeat what some OTHER people have said about friends:

A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.
Elbert Hubbard

A friend should be one in whose understanding and virtue we can equally confide, and whose opinion we can value at once for its justness and its sincerity.
Robert Hall

Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.
Muhammad Ali

A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
Arnold H. Glasow

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.
C. S. Lewis

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
Oprah Winfrey

But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.
Thomas Jefferson

I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.
Robert Brault

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
Albert Schweitzer

You can always tell a real friend: when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.
Laurence J. Peter

    Love the quotes about friends - I have seen most but love when someone gets a whole bunch on the same subject together in one place. My stepmother is 89 and she has several friends she has known and stayed in touch with since elementary and high school. The numbers are dwindling but there were quite a few at her 65th reunion a few years back.
