Charles Caleb Colton
We only want that which is given naturally to all peoples of the world, to be masters of our own fate, not of others, and in cooperation and friendship with others.
Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words.
George Eliot [Mary Ann Evans]
A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.
If a man does not make new acquaintance as he advances through life, he will soon find himself left alone. A man, Sir, should keep his friendship in constant repair.
Dr. Samuel Johnson
Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.

"What Is A True Friend?"Submitted by judy
What is a "true " friend ? A "true" friend is someone that has the same "values" as you do. And for me , it is "love" of family and children. Not just saying "I love you " but showing the "light of love "everyday. A "true" friend also does for others and can be "counted upon" if you ever need help. Some people...

We met in February on an exchange and then again in April the same year. There was something between us that just clicked; we got on like a house on fire. Even though there was a big language barrier, we didn't let it get between us. Saying goodbye was so hard as we had become such good friends. The distance does...

I am touched by your comments as they reflect some of my own experiences. I don't think I have succeeded much in this area of friendship and I too am 60 years old this year. I think my deficit in making friends may have developed from a lack of trust in others and a feeling of not being worthy of their love. I have been limited by these internal pieces of my mind and heart all my life. I would like to develop close friends and have had opportunities but I have been unable to let my guard down and share myself with others. I am wondering if you have any thoughts on this matter? Or give any advice.
