Famous quotes containing the word friend:

    A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him, I may think aloud.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    ... a friend told me that she had read of a woman who had knitted a wash rag for President Wilson. She was eighty years old and her friends thought it remarkable that she could knit a wash rag! I thought that if a woman of eighty could knit a wash rage for a Democratic President it behooved one of ninety-six to make something more than a wash rag for a Republican President.
    Maria D. Brown (1827–1927)

    The philanthropists inquire whether Transcendentalism does not mean sloth: they had as lief hear that their friend is dead, as that he is a Transcendentalist; for then is he paralyzed, and can never do anything for humanity.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
