However rare true love may be, it is less so than true friendship.
- François Duc de La Rochefoucauld
A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
A hug is worth a thousand words. A friend is worth more.
Do not save your loving speeches for your friends till they are dead;
Do not write them on their tombstones, speak them rather now instead.
- Anna Cummins
Best friends are like diamonds, precious and rare;
False friends are like leaves, found everywhere.
Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you say. Best friends listen to what you don't say.
