The rule of friendship means there should be mutual sympathy between them, each supplying what the other lacks and trying to benefit the other, always using friendly and sincere words.
Buddha (563 BC-483 BC) Founder of Buddhism.
Don't flatter yourself that friendship authorizes you to say disagreeable things to your intimates. The nearer you come into relation with a person, the more necessary do tact and courtesy become.

My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.

The worst solitude is to have no real friendships.
Francis Bacon (1561-1626) British statesman and philosopher.
Who ceases to be a friend never was one.
We learn our virtues from our friends who love us; our faults from the enemy who hates us. We cannot easily discover our real character from a friend. He is a mirror, on which the warmth of our breath impedes the clearness of the reflection.
Jean Paul (1763-1825) German novelist and humorist.
Some people go to priests; others to poetry; I to my friends.
Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) British novelist and essayist.
Among Life's precious jewels, Genuine and rare, The one that we call friendship Has worth beyond compare.

Faithful friends are gifts from heaven: Whoever finds one has found a treasure.
