The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend. ~Henry David Thoreau

A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they're not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they're not so bad. ~Arnold H. Glasgow
- The greatest blessing that i have in my friends is that they are willing to listen to me prattle about nothing, everything, and anything. They listen to the creakings of my brain and still continue being my friend even after.

Strangers are just friends waiting to happen. ~Rod McKuen
- to think that there was a time that we were strangers is unfathomable to me because i feel as though my heart has known your heart for eternity and beyond.

A good friend is a connection to life - a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world. ~Lois Wyse
