best friend quotes & sayings

Just walk beside me and be my friend. ~ Albert Camus

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? ~ Emily Bronte

My friends have come to me unsought. The great God gave them to me. By oldest right, by the divine affinity of virtue with itself, I find them, or rather not I, but the Deity in me and in them derides and cancels the thick walls of the individual character, relation, age, sex, circumstance, at which he usually connives, and now makes many one. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of disappointed love. ~ Jane Austen

Hard times will always reveal true friends.

My true friends have always given me that supreme proof of devotion, a spontaneous aversion for the man I loved. ~ Colette

Best friend, my well-spring in the wilderness! ~ George Eliot

I know nothing which life has to offer so satisfying as the profound good understanding, which can subsist, after much exchange of good offices, between two virtuous men, each of whom is sure of himself, and sure of his friend. It is a happiness which postpones all other gratifications, and makes politics, and commerce, and churches, cheap. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Have patience with all things but first with yourself. Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being. You're a perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist. And no amount of triumphs or tribulations can ever change that. Unconditional self acceptance is the core of a peaceful mind. ~ St. Francis de Sales

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. ~ Ecclesiastes

Some friendships do not last, but some friends are more loyal than brothers. ~ Proverbs 18:24

Remember, the greatest gift is not found in a store nor under a tree, but in the hearts of true friends. ~ Cindy Lew

To the query, “What is a friend?” his reply was “A single soul dwelling in two bodies.” ~ Aristotle
