Quotes about Friendship
** The best antiques to collect are old friends.
** Friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle,
because the older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.
** How unspeakably the lengthening of memories in common endears our old friends! (George Eliot)
** It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
** Nothing is as comfortable as an old friend.
** There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered. (Nelson Mandela)
