The most I can do for my friend is simply to be his friend. I have no wealth to bestow on him. If he knows that I am happy in loving him, he will want no other reward. Is not friendship divine in this?
Henry David Thoreau
To be capable of steady friendship or lasting love, are the two greatest proofs, not only of goodness of heart, but of strength of mind.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You, too? I thought I was the only one.
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
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
We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend.

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.
