- So long as we are loved by others I should say that we are almost indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.
- The very flexibility and ease which make men’s friendships so agreeable while they endure, make them the easier to destroy and forget. And a man who has a few friends, or one who has a dozen (if there be any one so wealthy on this earth), cannot forget on how precarious a base his happiness reposes; and how by a stroke or two of fate –a death, a few light words, a piece of stamped paper, a woman’s bright eyes –he may be left, in a month, destitute of all.
- A friend is a present you give to yourself.
- The cruelest lies are often told in silence. A man may have sat in a room for hours and not opened his mouth, and yet come out of that room a disloyal friend or a vile calumniator.
- The truth that is suppressed by friends is the readiest weapon of the enemy.
- Give us grace and strength to forbear and to persevere. Give us courage and gaiety and the quiet mind, spare to us our friends, soften to us our enemies.
