“Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life and said ‘I’m Here for you.’ And Proved it.”
The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.
**Henry David Thoreau
“Friendship is like a violin. The music may stop now and then, but the strings will go on forever.”
“A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.”
“Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps . . . perhaps . . . love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.”
“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship.”
**Ralph Waldo Emerson
