What is a friend?
One soul dwelling in two bodies.

There are not many things in life so beautiful as true friendship, and not many things more uncommon.

Sometimes you have to grow farther apart to keep growing together.

Many people will walk in and out of your life,
but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.

A friend is a gift you give yourself.
--Robert Louis Stevenson

To have a friend, be a friend.
--Old saying

We have been friends together in sunshine and in shade.
--Caroline Norton

Things are never quite as scary when you have a best friend.
--Bill Watterson

I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me,
I'd like to be the help that you've been always glad to be;
I'd like to mean as much to you each minute of the day,
as you have meant old friend of mine, to me along the way.
--Edgar A. Guest

When we are grown we'll smile and say
We had no cares in childhood's day -
But we'll be wrong... 'Twill not be true.
I've this much care... I care for you.

Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is before you can meet again.
And meeting again after a moment or lifetime is certain for those who are friends.
--Richard Bach

Cherish friendship in your breast.
New is good but old is best.
Make new friends but keep the old,
New is silver, the other is gold.

Yesterday brought the beginning, tomorrow brings the end
but somewhere in the middle we've become the best of friends.

Ah! How good it feels, the hand of an old friend.

A friend walks in when the rest of the world walks out.

Happiness isn't the easiest thing to find,
but one place you're guaranteed to find it is in a friend's smile.
--Allison Poler

A friend is someone who truly cares,
A friend is someone who's always there,
A friend will be there in times of woe,
Talking, laughing, and sometime letting go,
Times alone we sometimes need,
But coming back we will do indeed,
There may be times we may not agree,
For you are you and I am me,
We may argue because of that fact,
But our power of friendship will bring us back,
Cause the love in our hearts we feel inside,
Is not something we would ever hide,
So come to me in times of need,
Cause you my dear always have a friend in me.

I hold in my hands
a box of gold,
With a secret inside
that has never been told.

The box is priceless
but as I see,
The treasure inside
is far more precious to me.

Today I share
this treasure with thee,
It's the treasure of friendship
You've given to me!
