Anyone can sympathize with the sufferings of a friend, but itrequires a very fine nature to sympathize with a friend’s success.
A true friend is one soul in two bodies.
Prosperity makes friends, adversity tries them.
Publicity attracts friends, prosperity attaches friends, butadversity is the acid test of true friends.
There is no man that impart his joys to his friends, but that he joythe more; and no man that impart his grief to his friends, but he grieve theless.
The friendship between gentlemen appears indifferent but is purelike water; the friendship between mean men is as sweet as wine.
A man with few friends is only half developed; there are whole sidesof his nature which are locked up and never been expressed. He cannot unlockthem himself, he cannot even discover them. Friends alone can stimulate him andopen him.
You shall judge a man by his foes as well as by his friends.
Be slow in choosing a friend; slower in changer.
A true friend is one who overlooks your failures and tolerates yoursuccesses.
