When we honestly ask ourselves which
person in our lives means the most us,
we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or
have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand.
The friend who can be
silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us
in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate
not knowing, not curing, not healing
and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares."
"If you should die before me ask
if you can take a friend" - Stone Temple Pilots.
relationships-friendships and otherwise-tend to be those where you can say anything to the other person but you don't have
to say everything." -Audrey Beth Stein
the conversation mentioned your name. And someone asked if I knew you. Looking back to all the time we had together. Sharing,
laughter, tears, jokes and tons more. And then without explanation you were gone. I looked to where they were waiting for
an answer, and then said softly, 'Once..I thought I did.'"

friend youve never kissed?"
possessive. If a female friend lets on that she is going out with another man, be kind and understanding. If she says she
would like to go out with the Dallas Cowboys, including the coaching staff, the same rule applies. Tell her: "Kath, you just
go right ahead and do what you feel is right." Unless you actually care for her, in which case you must see to it that she
has no male contact whatsoever." - Bruce Jay Friedman
"A friend is someone who knows all about you and still likes you." -Elbert Hubbard
easier to turn a friendship into love, than a love into friendship
"Do not keep the alabaster box of your friendship sealed up until your
are dead. Fill their lives with sweetness. Speak approving,
cheering words while their ears can hear them, and while their
can be thrilled and made happier. The kind of things you mean to say
when they are gone, say before they go."-George
"It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid
with them."-Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Never shall I forget the time I spent with you. Please continue to be my friend,
as you will always find me yours."-Ludwig Van Beethoven
You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing.
all, what's a life anyway? We're born, we live, we die. By
helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my
life a trifle.
Heaven knows, anyone's life can stand a little of that.-E.B. White's "Charlotte's Web"
"Once in a while you meet someone and soon you both discover the two of you
are truly something special to each other...you share your thoughts and feelings so relaxed so openly, and right away you
know your friendship is truly meant to be."
"You never leave someone behind. You take part of them with you,
leave a part of you behind."
"And when there seems like there is no one left to run to in this empty
of ours, you can come to me and I'll be your shooting star. You
can tell me your dreams, I can't promise that I can
make them come
true. But I will be there to pick up the pieces of your broken heart
if your dreams happen to
"Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is
a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl
themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare
to pick up
the pieces when it's all over."-Gloria Naylor
"A friend should be someone you don't have to prove things to,
whom you can be yourself, whatever that is. A friend is also
someone who should be able to tell you are being silly or
brain damaged or making poor decisions about something without you being upset and offended, like when the love of your life
is taking you to the cleaners, and you are completely blind to it." -Joseph Franci
"A friend is someone with whom you can really be yourself; One who
the good in you, overlooks the bad in you, and brings out
the best in you. With a friend, you can share a laugh,
a secret, a
viewpoint, a success or disappointment, and a complete assortment of
problems large and small. A
friend is someone who understands silences as well as words, one who lifts you up and never lets you down, who makes you feel
it's a pretty nice old world after all. A friend is one who knows all about you and loves you just the same."
"Year after year, we see ourselves change and the world changes around us.
We are never the same from day to day, and we experience life in so many different ways. At times, it challenges us with unexpected
difficulties, we become stronger and more self-sufficient. We learn how to depend on ourselves and rely on one another "

"When I find myself fading, I close
my eyes and realize my friends are my energy."
"Just when you think
that a person is just a backdrop for the rest of the universe, watch them and see that they laugh, they cry, they tell jokes

what you really are is all the experiences and all the thoughts you've ever had and all the people who have touched your life,

"Best friends hang tough. They don't
come with fragile stickers and are not easily scared off, or ticked off. Best friends help you out whenever they can, make
time for you even when they don't have any, and trust your friendship enough to say no. Best friends are cross-your-heart-and-hope-to-die,
good-times-and-bad-times, borrow-anything, tell-you-everything, trust-you-with-their-deepest-darkest-secrets, always-and-forever
Just thinking about a friend makes
you want to do a happy dance, because a friend is someone who loves you in spite of your faults".
have to say I'm the luckiest person in the entire world. Why? Because I'm one of those lucky people who found a true friend
like you. We might have met as strangers. Back then, the thought never entered my mind that you'd be the person I'd love and
trust the most. But you showed how valuable our friendship is by always lending me a shoulder to cry on and always finding
the key to solve my problems. You never caused a single tear that rolled down my face, instead, you were always there to wipe
the ones others had triggered. You battled my tough times with me, and you shielded me from everything that harmed me. I will
always remember the tough times we went through, but what I will remember most are the times when we laughed so hard tears
came rolling down our faces. I remember how we laughed and smiled about our teenage crushes. I remember watching all those
movies only to find that when I was crying you were crying, when I was scared, you were scared, and when I was laughing, you
were laughing with me. I remember all those quiet walks we shared. Sometimes we would have so much to say to one another,
but sometimes we were short of words but even through the silence, I was having the best walk out of my life. Perhaps that's
why our friendship is so strong and will never collapse. Trust, loyalty, love, honesty, fun, laughter, smiles, tears, hardships-they're
all things I felt when I'm with you, and I've never felt all those feelings with just one friend before. You're one in a million,
and I will never forget you for as long as I live. No matter how far apart we are, I know that you'll always be in my thoughts."
never grow apart; they just lose touch."
"No distance of place or lapse of
time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth."
I could take a minute to help you understand that I am a better person becayse you're my friend.. It reall doesn't matter
if we're together or apart, for I swept you up into my hands and placed you in my heart. If at any moment you ever start to
doubt that there is a special bond between us, that I can't live without you. You truely are the answers to many of my prayers.
When I told GOD that I needed someone who really cares. Someone to stand beside me. Someone to help comfort and cope and to
remind me that there's always some room for one to hope. You've helped be through some things that no one could helpe me through.
I never knew what friendship was until I first met you. Now I hope you realize just how much you mean to me. You're the definition
of what a real and true friend should be.
'You can kiss your family and friends
good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because
you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.'
"Thus nature has no love for solitude,
and always leans, as it were, on some support; and the sweetest support is found in the most intimate friendship."
"If you like someone, tell him, because you might found out that they like you too."
"You fail to see the one
who loves you standing right in front as does she fail to see you love her in turn. Don't wait to tell her, because it might
be to late then."
"What is more important to you the love you share, the memories you have or the lover?
Give love a chance to swallow you up. Don't just think it will happen in a instant, it will suprise you before you know it,
but it will be the most rewarding experience you will ever have."
It's the friends you can call up at 4am that matter."
