Sample Quotes on Friendship:

It is all right your saying you do not need other people, but there are a lot of people who need you.

--Sherwood Anderson

If you go looking for a friend, you’re going to find they’re very scarce. If you go out to be a friend, you’ll find them everywhere.

—Zig Ziglar

Be friends with everybody. When you have friends you will know there is somebody who will stand by you. You know the old saying, that if you have a single enemy you will find him everywhere. It doesn’t pay to make enemies. Lead the life that will make you kindly and friendly to every one about you, and you will be surprised what a happy life you will live.

--Charles M. Schwab

The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.

--Pearl S. Buck

There is no doubt that paper is patient and as I don’t intend to show this cardboard-covered notebook, bearing the proud name of ‘diary,’ to anyone, unless I find a real friend, boy or girl, probably nobody cares. And now I come to the root of the matter, the reason for my starting a diary: it is that I have no such real friend.

--Anne Frank

If a friend is in trouble, don’t annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.

--Edgar Watson Howe

You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.

--Dale Carnegie

If you were another person, would you like to be a friend of yours?

-- Unknown

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

--Henry Ford

Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another.

--George Eliot

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’

—C. S. Lewis

Life is short. Cut out the negativity, forget gossip, say goodbye to people who don't care. Spend time with the people who are always there.

I don’t like that man. I must get to know him better.

—Abraham Lincoln

From that time on, the world was hers for the reading. She would never be lonely again, never miss the lack of intimate friends. Books became her friends and there was one for every mood. There was poetry for quiet companionship. There was

adventure when she tired of quiet hours. There would be love stories when she

came into adolescence, and when she wanted to feel a closeness to someone she

could read a biography. On that day when she first knew she could read, she

made a vow to read one book a day as long as she lived.

—Betty Smith

I can’t control your behavior; nor do I want that burden…but I will not apologize for refusing to be disrespected, to be lied to, or to be mistreated. I have standards; step up or step out.

—Seve Maraboli

Sometimes I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s

beyond me.

—Zora Neale Hurston

Love is friendship set on fire.

--Jeremy Taylor
