1. "It isn't true what they say about mothers. We don't hate our sons'girlfriends. The sleazy ones—maybe. But we're mostly delighted and a little startled when a wonderful girl loves our son. And relieved the son is smart enough to love her back. I'm grateful,Beth."
Author: Angela Morrison
2. "Never surrender your hopes and dreams to the fateful limitations others have placed on their own lives. The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets. Judge not by their words, but accept advice based on the evidence of actual results. Do not be surprised should you find a complete absence of anything mystical or miraculous in the manifested reality of those who are so eager to advise you. Friends and family who suffer the lack of abundance, joy, love, fulfillment and prosperity in their own lives really have no business imposing their self-limiting beliefs on your reality experience."
Author: Anthon St. Maarten
3. "For money you can have everything it is said. No, that is not true. You can buy food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; soft beds, but not sleep; knowledge but not intelligence; glitter, but not comfort; fun, but not pleasure; acquaintances, but not friendship; servants, but not faithfulness; grey hair, but not honor; quiet days, but not peace. The shell of all things you can get for money. But not the kernel. That cannot be had for money."
Author: Arne Garborg
4. "That, precisely, is the deadliness of second-handers. They have no concern for facts, ideas, work. They're concerned only with people. They don't ask: 'Is this true?' They ask: 'Is this what others think is true?' Not to judge, but to repeat. Not to do, but to give the impression of doing. Not creation, but show. Not ability, but friendship. Not merit, but pull. What would happen to the world without those who do, think, work, produce? Those are the egotists. You don't think through another's brain and you don't work through another's hands. When you suspend your faculty of independent judgment, you suspend consciousness. To stop consciousness is to stop life."
Author: Ayn Rand
5. "Any age is rough for it's own reasons. There is a time for every season, is not just a song. It is life. Everything, even the freaking planets & stars all have seasons.My 30's have been my best so far. I have learned some the best lessons, I have seen the best examples of friendship & fellowship. Some of the people I have met in my 30's could potentially be my first real & true best friends for life. I have grown emotionally, intellectually and spiritually more in the last 6 or so years, than it seems possible.So, embrace all of the years of life experience instead of rejecting or fearing them. They don't teach this shit in school people! Live life, live to learn, live to love and live it to its limits! You have universe of power and potential, strive for it.Life is too damn short not to!"
Author: Bambi Dean
6. "Suppose one reads a story of filthy atrocities in the paper. Then suppose that something turns up suggesting that the story might not be quite true, or not quite so bad as it was made out. Is one's first feeling, 'Thank God, even they aren't quite so bad as that,' or is it a feeling of disappointment, and even a determination to cling to the first story for the sheer pleasure of thinking your enemies are as bad as possible? If it is the second then it is, I am afraid, the first step in a process which, if followed to the end, will make us into devils. You see, one is beginning to wish that black was a little blacker. If we give that wish its head, later on we shall wish to see grey as black, and then to see white itself as black. Finally we shall insist on seeing everything -- God and our friends and ourselves included -- as bad, and not be able to stop doing it: we shall be fixed for ever in a universe of pure hatred."
Author: C.S. Lewis
7. "Two people who are true friends are like two bodies with one soul"
Author: Chaim Potok
8. "Reuven listen to me. The Talmud says that a person should do two things for himself. One is to acquire a teacher. Do you remember the other.""Choose a friend," I said."Yes. You know what a friend is, Reuven? A Greek philosopher said that two people who are true friends are like two bodies with one soul."I nodded."Reuven, if you can, make Danny Saunders your friend.""I like him a lot, abba.""No. Listen to me. I am not talking about only liking him. I am telling you to make him your friend and to let him make you his friend."
Author: Chaim Potok
9. "A hug is worth a thousand words. A friend is worth more."True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it be lost."
Author: Charles Caleb Colton
10. "True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it is lost."
Author: Charles Caleb Colton
11. "I can indeed hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true for if so the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my father, brother and almost all of my friends, will be everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable doctrine."
Author: Charles Darwin
12. "For me, 'Lamb' started out as a further exploration of the phenomenon of faith and the responsibility of a messiah that I touched on in 'Coyote Blue' and 'Island of the Sequined Love Nun,' but it ended up being an exploration of the true meaning of sacrifice, loyalty, and friendship."
Author: Christopher Moore
13. "As for myself, I can only exhort you to look on Friendship as the most valuable of all human possessions, no other being equally suited to the moral nature of man, or so applicable to every state and circumstance, whether of prosperity or adversity, in which he can possibly be placed. But at the same time I lay it down as a fundamental axiom that "true Friendship can only subsist between those who are animated by the strictest principles of honour and virtue." When I say this, I would not be thought to adopt the sentiments of those speculative moralists who pretend that no man can justly be deemed virtuous who is not arrived at that state of absolute perfection which constitutes, according to their ideas, the character of genuine wisdom. This opinion may appear true, perhaps, in theory, but is altogether inapplicable to any useful purpose of society, as it supposes a degree of virtue to which no mortal was ever capable of rising."
Author: Cicero
14. "My true friends always gave me this supreme proof of attachment: a spontaneous aversion to the men I loved."
Author: Colette
15. "There was a way in which my grandmother's true self was not these guests' business; no one's true self was the business of more than a very small number of family members or close friends."
Author: Curtis Sittenfeld
16. "To be a true poet is to become God.I tried to explain this to my friends on Heaven's Gate. 'Piss, shit,' I said. 'Asshole motherfucker, goddamn shit goddamn. Cunt. Pee-pee cunt. Goddamn!'They shook their heads and smiled, and walked away. Great poets are rarely understood in their own day."
Author: Dan Simmons
17. "We often promise our friend to hold there hand in time of need and crisis but maximum fails to keep it. Who don't fail is your true friend. Learn to keep the promise. Friendship is ever thing."
Author: Debolina
18. "Overall I think that the most important thing is to have true friends, and always to stay true to yourself and never try to be somebody that you're not."
Author: Diego Boneta
19. "Every true love and friendship is a story of unexpected transformation. If we are the same person before and after we loved, that means we haven't loved enough."
Author: Elif Shafak

21. "Branching paths. The turning of days and seasons and years. Life offered you love sometimes, sorrow often. If you were very fortunate, true friendship. Sometimes war came.You did what you could to shape your own peace, before you crossed over to the night and left the world behind, as all men did, to be forgotten or remembered, as time or love allowed."
Author: Guy Gavriel Kay

Don't fuck with me, cause they got my back. Where do your friends go, when they know you can't hack? Do they stay and help? Fuck no, they run! Back to their mommies while we have our fun. My juggalo family, we don't fuck around. So tell me this now, are you down with the clown?"
Author: Insane Clown Posse

Author: Jason Lloyd

"True best friends never fail on understanding, forgiving, and being there for one another no matter what situation that they might be in or having with one another because of the fact of that no matter if it's two males or females love should always be there as if brothers or sisters if their what we call best friends."
Author: Jonathan Anthony Burkett
27. "Dogs are minor angels, and I don't mean that facetiously. They love unconditionally, forgive immediately, are the truest of friends, willing to do anything that makes us happy, etcetera. If we attributed some of those qualities to a person we would say they are special. If they had ALL of them, we would call them angelic. But because it's "only" a dog, we dismiss them as sweet or funny but little more. However when you think about it, what are the things that we most like in another human being? Many times those qualities are seen in our dogs every single day-- we're just so used to them that we pay no attention."
Author: Jonathan Carroll
28. "This was another of our fears: that Life wouldn't turn out to be like Literature. Look at our parents--were they the stuff of Literature? At best, they might aspire to the condition of onlookers and bystanders, part of a social backdrop against which real, true, important things could happen. Like what? The things Literature was about: Love, sex, morality, friendship, happiness, suffering, betrayal, adultery, good and evil, heroes and villains, guilt and innocence, ambition, power, justice, revolution, war, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, the individual against society, success and failure, murder, suicide, death, God."
Author: Julian Barnes
29. "End-of-the-world stories tend to ring true. I've always been drawn to them, but as I wrote my own, I found surprising pleasure in creating a world that is so radically changed, yet where there's so much meaning and value in every small and ordinary thing we have, and take for granted: hot showers, enough food, friends, routines."
Author: Karen Thompson Walker
30. "True friends. Hardest thing to find, but you never look for them - they found you ; you just grow into each other"
Author: Keith Richards
31. "I guess I have friends around me but when you're paying them can they ever really be true friends?"
Author: Kelly Osbourne

"True friendship is a very helpful thing indeed," said Mrs. Allan, "and we should have a very high ideal of it , and never sully it by any failure in truth and sincerity. I fear the name of friendship is often degraded to a kind of intimacy that had nothing of real friendship in it."
Author: L.M. Montgomery
33. "People come in and out of our lives, and the true test of friendship is whether you can pick back up right where you left off the last time you saw each other."
Author: Lisa See
34. "Give those who are gentle strength,Give those who are strong a generous imagination,And make their half-truth true and let the crooked Footpath find its parent road at length....For never to beginAnything new because we know there is nothingNew, is an academic sophistry--The original sin.I have already had friendsAmong things and hours and peopleBut taking them one by one--odd hours and passing people;Now I must make amendsAnd try to correlate event with instinctAnd me with you or you with you with all,No longer think of time as a waterfallAbstracted from a river."
Author: Louis MacNeice

"SUMMER DEEP""Summer deep is in the hills again His lady is a lioness Winds of birds blow through the fields again Invaders from the true worlds A coat of grapes is on my back again I ride upon my zebra Pterodactyl beak hat on my brow The truth is like a stranger Be like you could All my friends say."
Author: Marc Bolan
36. "Here is the truth: God made us with our eyes open in his "likeness," which is our true identity. But Satan and people like him, with the same sinful motives (much like Leonard's friends in Memento), lie to us about who we are in order to serve their own plans. And here is the lie: we will be "like" God if we'll base our identity upon someone or something else other than God and the grace God bestows upon us.2 Adam and Eve fell for it. Rather than simply believing that they were already "like God" because God made them in his "likeness," our first parents disbelieved their God-given identity and instead sought to create their own apart from him. The result was the first sin and the Fall."
Author: Mark Driscoll
37. "Of course we will send postcards to Nutsawoo. And we shall bring him back a present as well. In fact,' she went on, with the instinctive knack every good governess has for turning something enjoyable into a lesson, and vice versa, 'I will expect all three of you to practice your writing by keeping a journal of our trip so that Nutsawoo may know how we spend our days. Why, by the time we return, he will think he has been to London himself! He will be the envy of all his little squirrel friends,' she declared.Penelope had no way of knowing if this last statement was true. Could squirrels feel envy? Would they give two figs about London? Did Nutsawoo even have friends?"
Author: Maryrose Wood
38. "Always be true to your friends, just as you are to yourself."
Author: Meg Cabot
39. "It is true that prosperity has many close friends; poverty, on the other hand, has only distant watchers!"
Author: Mehmet Murat Ildan
40. "But that is love, isn't it? It's terribly inconvenient. It sweeps you up and stales your attention and slows down your work. our labors fall behind, our friends report us missing, and everything comes to a screeching halt! Everything, that is, except what truly matters in this life --- true love. We've all been there. We know the feelings. So when we see it in a friend, a dear, dear friend, we throw down our work and we celebrate. We rejoice. We raise a glass. Because when we recognize it in the hearts of friends, it reminds us of how important it is in our own. Mr. Seven, you are and always have been my companion and friend. You have made me a better man, and almost on a daily basis you have reminded me that I too need to celebrate the love in my life. - William Charming"
Author: Michael Buckley
41. "I need more friends. It's kind of like my quest right now just to have more true friends."

Author: Miranda July
43. "Those who decided to stick with her would be her true friends. The others would just be scenery."
Author: Sarah Addison Allen
44. "As I ponder on what Spirituality means, I am seeing that True Spirituality is a total and complete surrender to All that is and All that will be. All that We Are and All that We Will Be. It is a Total and Complete acceptance to All of Life and comes without judgment, without violence, but with Unconditional Love. Spirituality is Awakening to the true nature of the self without fear but with an Inner Peace stemming from Immense Love of Self and All other. When we discovery that our inner peace does not depend on events or circumstances in the world but on a quiet and profound inner fulfillment, we become less self-centered, less needy of others' approval or recognition, less focused on material things and social status and fame. We Become Much Happier, Healthier and More Loving Individuals who are less likely to cause suffering to ourselves and others." With My Love and Friendship Always!"
Author: Sean D. Hamilton
45. "They say that "true love" doesn't mean being inseparable; it means being separated and nothing changes. This quote holds water if you're supporting a spouse with their life mission or educational pursuits. However, if your significant other wants to go get drunk with his or her friends without you, hang out at strip shows, get arrested or has friends that are as tasteless as the Pinterest and Facebook quotes they post, then by all means enjoy. Stupidity loves company."
Author: Shannon L. Alder
46. "My true friends have always given me that supreme proof of devotion, a spontaneous aversion for the man I loved."
Author: Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

Author: Walter Scott
