Often we have no time for our friends
but all the time in the world for our enemies.

On the road between the homes of friends, grass does not grow.
A friend is rare book but only one copy is made
Friends are lights in winter;
the older the friend, the brighter the light.
~ Roger Roseblatt ~
Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some stay a while and leave footprints on our hearts.
And we are never, ever the same.

A friend is a gift you give yourself.
~ Robert Louis Stevenson ~
Shared joy is double joy. Shared sorrow is half sorrow.
~ Swedish Proverb ~
A true, true friend is like a rainbow after a storm.
If you have one true friend, you have more than your share.
~ Thomas Fuller ~
Friendship is God's special way of loving us through someone else.
Hold a true friend with both of your hands.
~ Nigerian Proverb ~
A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart
and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.

Friends are angels, who lift us to our feet when our wings
have trouble remembering how to fly.
A true friend is one who
Knows you as you really are,
Understands where you've been,
Accepts who you've becomes,
And still gently invites you to grow.
A good friend sharpens your character,
Draws your soul into the light,
And challenges your heart to love in the greatest of ways.
Friendship is
Sharing openly,
Laughing often,
Trusting always,
Caring deeply.
"You Are Always My Friend"
You are always my friend;
When I am happy or when I am sad,
When I am along or when I am with people.
You are always my friend,
If I see you today
Or if I see you a year from now,
If I talk to you today
Or if I talk to you a year from now.
You are always my friend,
And though through the years we will change,
It does not matter what you do.
Throughout our lifetime
You are always my friend.
~ Susan Polis Schutg ~
A Friendship Letter For My Best Pal
I like you.
I like you a whole lot.
I like you because
When something matters to me,
It matters to you, too.
When you have a good idea,
You tell me first -
When I do, I tell you first.
That's why we make such a great team.
I like you because
When I say something funny, you laugh,
And when I'm not my usual self,
You notice right away
And ask me, "What's wrong?"
You're there for me and I'm there for you.
That's what friends are for.
I like you because -
I just do.
When somebody asks me who my best friend is,
I say, "You." And you say, "Me."
And fifty years from now,
We'll say the same thing.
That's the way it is and will always be -
You can count on it!
Let's Hug
There's a hug to say I love you
And a hug to say goodbye
There's a hug to say how are you
And a hug to say we tried
There's a hug to bond a friendship
And a hug when the day is through
But the hug I love in all the world
Is the hug I get from you.
A River
Life is like a river which
Flows through many turns
And changes, but even
When that river takes us
In different directions,
We will always find each other again -
Just around the next bend;
For our friendship is FOREVER,
Our friendship runs strong and deep.
