Never expect a loan to a friend to be paid back if you want to keep that friend.
Bryant H. McGill
To me a real patriot is like a real friend. Who's your real friend? It's the person who tells you the truth. That's who my real friends are. So, you know, I think as far as our country goes, we need more people who will do that.
To help a friend in need is easy, but to give him your time is not always opportune.
When I was growing up, my mother was always a friend to my siblings and me (in addition to being all the other things a mom is), and I was always grateful for that because I knew she was someone I could talk to and joke with, and argue with and that nothing would ever harm that friendship.
You can always tell a real friend: when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.
Laurence J. Peter

Most people think I am very nice; they think I'm their friend, which is lucky, but it means you're never allowed to be in a bad mood. They take it personally. The worst is when you're on holiday with your family.
Time is the friend of the wonderful company, the enemy of the mediocre.
A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing or the other, and we then know how to meet him.
The men and women of Afghanistan are building a nation that is free, and proud, and fighting terror - and America is honored to be their friend.

When you have a fat friend there are no see-saws, only catapults.

That perfect tranquillity of life, which is nowhere to be found but in retreat, a faithful friend and a good library.
With Clinton, there's no question that I would have made fun of his out-and-out lying. But he's also a good friend.
A friend of mine introduced me to Thurston Moore because she thought I would like him. He was playing with the tallest band in the world, the Coachmen. They were sort of like Talking Heads, jangly guitar, Feelies guitar. Anyway, it was love at first sight. His band broke up that night. And we started playing.
I don't ever want it to be about me. A friend of mine told me, 'The difference between fame and notoriety is fame is when people know you, and notoriety is when people know your work.' The first one is not respectable, but the second one is, because that leaves a legacy.
There is no friend as loyal as a book.
I can't really explain what it's like to be in love, but I feel like it's being comfortable. It's almost like having a best friend. It's a beautiful thing.

Plato is my friend; Aristotle is my friend, but my greatest friend is truth.
A high-powered, successful woman doesn't necessarily have the same support behind her that a man in that position would. Plus, she's expected to be a domestic goddess, as well as the best wife, mother, friend, and lover. But it's not just in politics: you see it in acting, too, and in journalism.
To find a friend one must close one eye - to keep him, two.
I said to the almond tree, 'Friend, speak to me of God,' and the almond tree blossomed.
Every kid has a toy that they believe is their best friend, that they believe communicates with them, and they imagine it being alive, their toy horse or car or whatever it is. Stop-motion is the only medium where we literally can make a toy come to life, an actual object.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
