A friend is a second self.
Friendship is a strong and habitual inclination in two persons to promote the good and happiness of one another.
Two may talk together under the same roof for many years, yet never really meet; and two others at first speech are old friends.
To give and receive advice – the former with freedom and yet without bitterness, the latter with patience and without irritation – peculiarly appropriate to genuine friendship.
There are very few honest friends – the demand is not particularly great.
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
A Brother may not be a Friend, but a Friend will always be a Brother.
True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable.
Dave Tyson Gentry
Your friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
What do you think? Do you really have any true friends? If so, what makes the friendship last?
