1. “What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.” -
4. "A man (or a woman) who have friends must show himself (or herself) friendly: and there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother (or a sister)." - Proverbs 18:24.
5. “You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” -
7. “I think if I've learned anything about friendship, it's to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don't walk away, don't be distracted, don't be too busy or tired, don't take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.” -
8. “When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.” -Out of Solitude: Three Meditations on the Christian Life.
