Useful friends are not these whom you use for personal purposes – these are friends who are able to make you happy, when you’re upset; who are able to inspire you when it seems that no hope is left.
Friends have to quarrel to know whether their friendship is true. A real friend will never drag his friend through the muck in public – on the contrary, he will say how great, kind and honest his friend is.
We should remember and care about our friends not only while we’re together, but when they’re far away. Long-distance friendship is the strongest one.
The most important thing is quality, not quantity. That’s why we have to strive to have good, reliable and understanding friends, but not false and lying fakes.
They say that the best way to know your friend is on the road. And it doesn’t matter whether it’s the road in a journey or the road of life. Time will straighten it all and show the real faces of the people we call friends.
Think twice before calling someone your friend. But if it happened, never think twice whether to call this person your friend in public. Friendship never tolerates ambiguity and distortions – it needs to be clear.
If you want to have a perfect friend, you also have to be perfect. But nobody’s perfect, that’s why we have to accept and learn to love all the drawbacks of our dear friends.
Friends are not things. We mustn’t choose them, trade them, lose them… Friends are living beings who must be very close and dear to our hearts, that’s why we should love, appreciate and take care of them.
You may have money, fame or power, but if you never know what real friendship is, you’ll never know the real happiness.
When we were kids, we had many friends, because we were opened and naive. But as we grow older we start to choose our surroundings very carefully, because we understand that friends characterize ourselves and our life. Nobody wants to see something terrible in the mirror.
One really strong, noble and long-lasting friendship is worth a hundred of fake and unworthy friends.
Friendship is the most amazing phenomena. Without any kinship, friends feel a special connection. Without any romantic entanglement, friends feel deep love for each other. True friendship is the purest relationship that one can ever have.
It’s priceless to know that if you’re in trouble, your friend will come to help you and if you’re happy, your friend will home to make you doubly happy.
The only difference between friends and lovers is that the first don’t need any kisses or hugs to prove their feelings to each other.
The most pleasant company is the company of your friends. The most interesting communication is the one with your friends. The most exciting life is the life shared with your friends.
A real friend is someone who knows that you’re not perfect and have drawbacks, but he will never tell it anybody – on the contrary, a true friend will tell them all that you’re the most amazing man on the planet.
Choosing friends means choosing your surroundings. It determines our intellectual and emotional development and most often has a tremendous impact on our life and our personality. Our friends are the mirror that gives us the submission of ourselves.
Nowadays it’s easier to find a girlfriend or a boyfriend than a real, honour and devoted friend. That’s why we should appreciate our friends and never let them down.
Sometimes it’s better to give up on your own opinion or position than on your best friend. Compromises will pave the way to a strong and infinite friendship.
Never regret loosing friends. If they disrespect you, betray or use you, they’re never worth keeping them so close to you. It is not true friendship – it’s only a waste of time.
There’s a recipe of a strong and long friendship. The ingredients are: common interests, respect, understanding, the ability to listen, kindness and generosity. If you strictly abide by this recipe, you’ll get an unbelievable friendship!
Really great things are those that include many little things that live in peace and understanding. Even the Universe is not that giant at all: it consists of planets, asteroids, galaxies… Friendship also works this way and is made of many pleasant little things.
Real friends should have eaten salt and sugar together and stood the test of time. Real friends won’t give up on their friendship, because they know that together they’re invincible and, what is more important, happy.
A real friend is an extension of you, of your body and your soul. He’s like a safe place, where you can put your secrets and be sure that they will never go beyond it, because your friend’s heart is yours and vice versa.
Real friends are these who have much in common: preferences and something they both dislike, hobbies and attitude. Real friends are soulmates, who understand and respect each other.
Friendship has many amazing qualities, but the main of them all is the opportunity to be yourself and not to be afraid to be got wrong. Friendship makes us take off our masks and see who we really are.
A man is the supreme value only when somebody really needs him, only when somebody appreciates and loves him. And friendship is the best way to understand how precious and unique you are.
You understand the value of friendship only when you lose it. That’s why it’s so important to enjoy and appreciate every minute spent with your friend and try to save relationships despite everything.
If you want to save and enrich friendship, you have to learn to forgive. Friendship requires self-sacrifice and the ability to accept our friends just the way they are. You’ll understand that friendship is worth it eventually.
