(Thanks, Liz!)

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You, too? Thought I was the only one.
– Clive Staples Lewis, 1898 – 1963

However rare true love may be, it is less so than true friendship.
– François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld, 1613 – 1680

Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words.
– George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans), 1819 – 1880

One’s friends are that part of the human race with which one can be human.
– George Santayana, 1863 – 1952

Friends do not live in harmony merely, as some say, but in melody.
– Henry David Thoreau, 1817 – 1862

Treat your friends as you do your pictures, and place them in their best light.
– Jennie Jerome Churchill, 1854 – 1921


Love is flower-like; Friendship is like a sheltering tree.
– Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1772 – 1834
