A Tote of Friendship Quotes

Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things.
I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar,
but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.  
~Robert Brault
 A good friend is cheaper than therapy.

The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.  
~Henry David Thoreau

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art.... It has no survival value;
rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.  
~C.S. Lewis

The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word,
and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had.  


The language of friendship is not words but meanings.
~Henry David Thoreau


A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you are half-cracked.

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive.
~Anäis Nin


Friends are relatives you make for yourself.
~Eustache Deschamps


Yes'm, old friends is always best,
'less you can catch a new one that's fit to make an old one out of.
~Sarah Orne Jewett


Ah, how good it feels!  The hand of an old friend.  
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I don't have a favorite friendship quote; however, I must tell you that your post, (not unlike your entire blog) brings about such a reassuring calm and reminded me of the wonderful friends I have in my life.

Friendship is indeed unnecessary but so necessary to life!

Thank you for the moment...

I have delighted in your quotes, thank you so much, and from the ones listed I like best: "A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you are half-cracked." :-)) Another quote I hold dear in my heart comes once again from your blog: "A good friend is like spring blossoming in the heart" I was planning to stitch it for my childhood best friend. And my favourite quote is: "Friendship doubles your joys and divides your sorrows." All the very best Maria, thanks for your blog, it is a blessing to my heart. From far away, sending you blessings, too, Lori xxx
