Famous quotes containing the word friendship:

    Some friendship is closely akin to treachery.
    —Robert N. Lee. Rowland V. Lee. King Edward IV (Ian Hunter)

    If a man does not make new acquaintance as he advances through life, he will soon find himself left alone. A man, Sir, should keep his friendship in constant repair.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Although I’m trying very hard
    To sound unlike a birthday card,
    That’s all this is: so you may find it
    Full of all that lies behind it
    Admiration; friendship too;
    And hope that in the future you
    Reap ever richer revenue.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
