quotes on friends

“There is nothing more comforting to a broken hearted friend, than to be comforted by another broken heart.”  Stephanie Schneider

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. - Henri Nouwen

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 healing, not curing... that is a friend who cares. - Henri Nouwen

A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so often - just to save it from drying out completely. - Pam Brown

“It was funny, my brother, one of my best friends, looked at me one night when I was very depressed.  Steph, he said, if you can try to look around you, the world hasn’t changed it’s still the same.  The stars are still shining, the wind is still blowing, and the world is still turning.  If you can wake yourself up to see it, you’ve got to actually open your eyes first, it’s all still here, the same as when you left it.  You’re mind has to re-open its eyes.” - Stephanie Schneider

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed. - Khalil Gibran

The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity. - Ulysses S. Grant

“Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.” ― John Lennon

“We will always begrudge a friend who seems to have a continually happy and content life; we will begrudge them, that is, until we realize their life is filled with joys and sorrows no different than our own, they simply choose to downplay the dark times and expound on the light; that is their only difference of being.  My friend taught me this.  Now others begrudge me for the very same thing.”  Stephanie Schneider

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. - Octavia Butler

We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence. - Joseph Roux

Many a person has held close, throughout their entire lives, two friends that always remained strange to one another, because one of them attracted by virtue of similarity, the other by difference. - Emil Ludwig

“A friend has the power to unlock parts of our being we didn’t even know were there, not just the good parts but the bad, like hidden disease no other has the courage to point out.  A friend will point it out so we can see before it destroys our character.”  Stephanie Schneider

It seems to me that trying to live without friends is like milking a bear to get cream for your morning coffee. It is a whole lot of trouble, and then not worth much after you get it. - Zora Neale Hurston

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. - Bruce Lee

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. - Ann Landers

“True friends can go missing for years on end, and when they come back can step effortlessly back into our hearts; not even with any words or deeds, but by some strange spiritual connection that links them together at the soul for all of time.” Stephanie Schneider

True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island... to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.  Baltasar Gracian

If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down. - Ray Bradbury

I think it's important to have closure in any relationship that ends - from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase. - Jennifer Aniston

“He was technically my first lover, but he was also my close friend.  He was one of the only ones I let in that far, into my private world, into my heart.  Maybe that’s why I felt like I died the day he walked in and he didn’t look at me, as if I was invisible, as if I didn’t exist.  Maybe I started believing it, that I was no longer really alive without his love, just a vapory ghost wandering around in a world of memories nobody else could see.” Stephanie Schneider
