If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship we must love friends for their sake rather than our own.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.
Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art...It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival.
Our chief want in life, is, someone who shall make us do what we can. This is the service of a friend. With him we are easily great.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Henry David Thoreau
There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.
A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities.

I just came back from a flight from a tropical island in Asia. I try to paint a smile on my cold, blushing cheeks. Winters are not my cup of tea—I dislike them down to...

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.
