"However rare true love may be, it is less than true friendship."
The language of friendship is not words but meanings.
"Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends whom we choose."
"Every man passes his life in search of friendship."
"Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow-ripening fruit."
"Your friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you."
"No man is useless while he has a friend."
"Love is rarer than genius itself. And friendship is rarer than love."
