Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing: I desire so to conduct the affairs of this administration that if at the end, when I come to lay down the reins of power, I have lost every other friend on earth, I shall at least have one friend left, and that friend shall be down inside me.
Abraham Lincoln quotes
Nothing so fortifies a friendship as a belief on the part of one friend that he is superior to the other.
Honore de Balzac quotes
Friendship is constant in all other things, Save in the office and affairs of love.
William Shakespeare quotes
Friendship should be more than biting time can sever.
T.S. Eliot quotes
Friendship doubles our joy and divides our grief.
Swedish proverb quotes
But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life; and thanks to a benevolent arrangement of things, the greater part of life is sunshine.
Thomas Jefferson quotes
An ounce of blood is worth more than a pound of friendship.
Spanish Proverb quotes
How rare and wonderful is that flash of a moment when we realize we have discovered a friend.
William Rotsler quotes
For to fear death, my friends, is only to think ourselves wise without really being wise, for it is to think that we know what we do not know. For no one knows whether death may not be the greatest good that can happen to man. But men fear it as if they knew quite well that it was the greatest of evils.
Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.
Henry David Thoreau quotes
