When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
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.
One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.
Charles R. Swindoll
Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.”
“The greatest love a person can have for his friends is to give his life for them.”
– John 15:13
“A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.”
– Proverbs 27:19
