Ambrose Bierce Quotes about friendship
#3765 Aristotle

When people are friends, they have no need of justice, but when they are just, they need friendship in addition. .

Aristotle Quotes about friendship
#4008 Francis Bacon

But we may go further, and affirm most truly, that it is a mere and miserable solitude to want true friends; without which the world is but a wilderness; and even in this sense also of solitude, whosoever in the frame of his nature and affections, is unfit for friendship, he taketh it of the beast, and not from humanity. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about friendship
#4863 Ralph Waldo Emerson

The condition which high friendship demands is ability to do without it. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about friendship
#7202 Adolf Hitler

Under the guidance of the Reich, Europe would speedily have become unified. Once the Jewish poison had been eradicated, unification would have been an easy matter. France and Italy, each defeated in turn at an interval of a few months by the two Germanic Powers, would have been well out of it. Both would have had to renounce their inappropriate aspirations to greatness. At the same time they would have had to renounce their pretensions in North Africa and the Near East; and that would have allowed Europe to pursue a bold policy of friendship towards Islam. (4th February 1945) .

Samuel Johnson Quotes about friendship
#8806 James Boswell

We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over. .

James Boswell Quotes about friendship
#8969 Bill Watterson

Calvin: Everybody I know fails the acid test of friendship. p154 .

Bill Watterson Quotes about friendship
#9727 Theodore Roosevelt

Much has been given us, and much will rightfully be expected from us. We have duties to others and duties to ourselves; and we can shirk neither. We have become a great nation, forced by the fact of its greatness into relations with the other nations of the earth, and we must behave as beseems a people with such responsibilities. Toward all other nations, large and small, our attitude must be one of cordial and sincere friendship. We must show not only in our words, but in our deeds, that we are earnestly desirous of securing their good will by acting toward them in a spirit of just and generous recognition of all their rights. But justice and generosity in a nation, as in an individual, count most when shown not by the weak but by the strong. .

Theodore Roosevelt Quotes about friendship
#10534 W. H. Auden

A vice in common can be the ground of a friendship but not a virtue in common. X and Y may be friends because they are both drunkards or womanizers but, if they are both sober and chaste, they are friends for some other reason. .

W. H. Auden Quotes about friendship
#13575 T. S. Eliot

Purpose is plain.Endurance of friendship does not depend Upon ourselves, but upon circumstance. But circumstance is not undetermined. Unreal friendship may turn to real But real friendship, once ended, cannot be mended. Sooner shall enmity turn to alliance. The enmity that never knew friendship Can sooner know accord. .

T. S. Eliot Quotes about friendship
#14237 Robert Frost

No memory of having starred Atones for later disregard, Or keeps the end from being hard. Better to go down dignified With boughten friendship at your side Than none at all. Provide, provide! .

Robert Frost Quotes about friendship

Power gradually extirpates from the mind every humane and gentle virtue. Pity, benevolence, friendship, are things almost unknown in high stations. .

Edmund Burke Quotes about friendship
#16574 Alexander Pope

Who ne'er knew joy but friendship might divide, Or gave his father grief but when he died. .

Alexander Pope Quotes about friendship
#17932 Oliver Goldsmith

And what is friendship but a name, A charm that lulls to sleep, A shade that follows wealth or fame, And leaves the wretch to weep? .

Oliver Goldsmith Quotes about friendship
#18568 Joseph Addison

Great souls by instinct to each other turn, Demand alliance, and in friendship burn .

Joseph Addison Quotes about friendship
#18571 Joseph Addison

Great souls by instinct to each other turn, Demand alliance, and in friendship burn; A sudden friendship, while with stretched-out rays They meet each other, mingling blaze with blaze. Polished in courts, and hardened in the field, Renowned for conquest, and in council skilled,Their courage dwells not in a troubled flood Of mounting spirits, and fermenting blood: Lodged in the soul, with virtue overruled, Inflamed by reason, and by reason cooled, In hours of peace content to be unknown. And only in the field of battle shown: To souls like these, in mutual friendship joined, Heaven dares intrust the cause of humankind. .

Joseph Addison Quotes about friendship
#18629 Joseph Addison

Justice discards party, friendship, kindred, and is therefore always represented as blind. .

Joseph Addison Quotes about friendship

Business, you know, may bring money, but friendship hardly ever does. .

Jane Austen Quotes about friendship
#19949 C. S. Lewis

Mr. Sensible learned only catchwords from them. He could talk like Epicurus of spare diet, but he was a glutton. He had from Montaigne the language of friendship, but no friend. .

C. S. Lewis Quotes about friendship
#20012 C. S. Lewis

We live, in fact, in a world starved for solitude, silence, and private: and therefore starved for meditation and true friendship. .

C. S. Lewis Quotes about friendship
#20730 The Merchant of Venice

For when did friendship take A breed for barren metal of his friend? .

The Merchant of Venice Quotes about friendship
#24999 W. Somerset Maugham

It's no good trying to keep up old friendships. It's painful for both sides. The fact is, one grows out of people, and the only thing is to face it. .

W. Somerset Maugham Quotes about friendship
#25608 Blaise Pascal

Types.—When once this secret is disclosed, it is impossible not to see it. Let us read the Old Testament in this light, and let us see if the sacrifices were real; if the fatherhood of Abraham was the true cause of the friendship of God; and if the promised land was the true place of rest. No. They are therefore types. Let us in the same way examine all those ordained ceremonies, all those commandments which are not of charity, and we shall see that they are types. All these sacrifices and ceremonies were then either types or nonsense. Now these are things too clear, and too lofty, to be thought nonsense. .

Blaise Pascal Quotes about friendship
#26629 Emil Cioran

Friendship is a pact, a convention. Two beings tacitly promise never to broadcast what each really thinks of the other. A kind of alliance based on compromises. When one of them publicly calls attention to the other's defects, the pact is declared null and void, the alliance broken. No friendship lasts if one of the partners ceases to play the game. In other words, no friendship tolerates an exaggerated proportion of honesty. .

Emil Cioran Quotes about friendship
#27138 John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester

If you have a grateful heart (which is a miracle amongst you statesmen), show it by directing the bearer to the best wine in town, and pray let not this highest point of sacred friendship be performed slightly, but go about it with all due deliberation and care, as holy priests to sacrifice, or as discreet thieves to the wary performance of burglary and shop-lifting. Let your well-discerning palate (the best judge about you) travel from cellar to cellar and then from piece to piece till it has lighted on wine fit for its noble choice and my approbation. .

John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester Quotes about friendship
#27556 Samuel Butler (novelist)

A man’s friendships are, like his will, invalidated by marriage—but they are also no less invalidated by the marriage of his friends. .

Samuel Butler (novelist) Quotes about friendship
