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.
Charles Caleb Colton
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.
Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
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
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.
William Arthur Ward
I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with the roughest courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work, but the solidest thing we know.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.
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
There are good ships and wood ships, ships that sail the sea, but the best ships are friendships, may they always be!

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.
