Not an easy one to answer so the best way
(I thought) was to pull out my favourite friendship quotes.
Here they are ...
What is a friend?
A friend is an angel who picks you up when your wings forget to fly
I value a friend who, for me, finds time on his calendar,
But I cherish the friend who, for me, does not consult his calendar
It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is
Someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down
~ Oprah Winfrey
A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out
~ Grace Pulpit
The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word,
And walk away feeling that was the best conversation you've had
It is the friends you can call up at 4.00am that matter
~ Marlene Dietrich
and my favourite of all
A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails
~ Donna Roberts
Thank God for my many friends who fit the above.
Wish you all many true friends.
