Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.
Henry David Thoreau
Friendship with oneself is all-important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.
Friends broaden our horizons. They serve as new models with whom we can identify. They allow us to be ourselves--and accept us that way. They enhance our self-esteem because they think we're okay, because we matter to them. And because they matter to us-for various reasons, at various levels of intensity-they enrich the quality of our emotional life.
Real friends are those who, when you’ve made a fool of yourself, don’t feel that you’ve done a permanent job.
Erwin T. Randall
There are good ships and wood ships, ships that sail the sea, but the best ships are friendships, may they always be!
Charles Caleb Colton
Consult your friend on all things, especially on those which respect yourself. His counsel may then be useful where your own self-love might impair your judgment.
Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words.
George Eliot [Mary Ann Evans]
If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship we must love friends for their sake rather than our own.

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.
