But laughter and the love of friends.

who are succeeding, and do as they have done.
— Joseph Marshall Wade

— Elizabeth Bowen

My wife ran off with my best friend, and I sure do miss him.

Friendship Sayings and Friendship Quotes — Children

and Their Best Friends

Children treat their friends differently than they treat the other
people in their lives. A friendship is a place for experimenting with
new ways of handling anger and aggression. It is an arena for practicing
reciprocity, testing assertiveness, and searching for compromise in
ways children would not try with parents or siblings.
— Lawrence Kutner

It is possible to make friends with our children — but probably not
while they are children.

— Donald C. Medeiros

only hear me talk.” Often they are right. Familiarity breeds inattention.

— Laurence Steinberg

Friends serve central functions for children that parents do not,
and they play a critical role in shaping children’s social skills
and their sense of identity . . . The difference between a child with
close friendships and a child who wants to make friends but is unable
to can be the difference between a child who is happy and a child
who is distressed in one large area of life.

— Zick Rubin

to tell him his.

who will be delighted to hear about them.

friends that you know how to tell the truth.

— Christian H. Godefroy

Friendship Sayings and Quotes — Friendship between Men and Women

Classic Friendship Poems


Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?

The wild-rose briar is sweet in the spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?

Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly's sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He may still leave thy garland green.

Do be my enemy for friendship’s sake.

Has not a friend to spare,
While he who has one enemy
Shall meet him everywhere.

For he knew when he pleas’d he could whistle them back.
