Friends are as necessary as breathing. They bring and take the life out of you. Here are some friendship quotes that will keep you in the right perspective and hopefully, keep you going.
“The only way to have a friend is to be one.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
We are the people we attract. Great friendship begins with oneself. Although the qualities of a good friend maybe related to showing unconditional love, humans tend to reciprocate better.
“Things are never quite as scary when you’ve got a best friend.”
– Bill Watterson
Besides doing the things that you both do, friends will definitely open new doors to you. Whether it is a geeky pursuit or a mind-boggling extreme sports event, you have to be prepared to get out of your comfort zone.
“The best time to make friends is before you need them.”
– Ethel Barrymore
Practical and insightful, doing this makes you pursue friendship with all the right reasons. It will save you from all the disappointments from failed friendships.
“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value;
Rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.”
– S. Lewis
You can live without your friend. But it will never be the same as when you are friends. Life becomes different in so many ways. Even your values change.
“A friend to all is a friend to none.”
A friend who stands up for everybody might be sincerely peace-loving or highly pretentious. Aristotle’s warning is good enough provocation to know which one your friends are.
“Friendship is like standing on wet cement. The longer you stay, the harder it’s to leave,
and you can never go without leaving your footprints behind.”
Friends (real friends) will always leave a mark. When the time to say good bye comes, a good friend will definitely leave you a trail of footprints along the way. Whether they are nonsensical jokes or ingenious advice, your friend will definitely leave a piece of himself.
“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
