"A true friend is a mirror with the greatest clarity; a true enemy is the most challenging but devoted teacher." David Scott

“Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness. A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”

“The best mirror is an old friend.” - George Herbert

“One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.”

“Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.” -Helen Keller

“Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over. “- Octavia Butler

You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.” - Dale Carnegie

“Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.” - Anthony Robbins

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 someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.” - Donna Roberts

“People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.”

"You don't know the new me, I put back my pieces differently."

Focus on the people who inspire you, not the ones who annoy you.

“Some people come into your life for a reason, some a season, and some a lifetime. However long it was, be thankful for the gifts you received from them.”

I don't need someone who only sees the good in me. I need someone who sees all of me and loves me just the same.

Don't look for someone who'll solve all your problems. Look for someone who won't let you face them alone.

"Life is short. Spend it with people who allow you to see the world differently; that make you laugh and feel loved." David Scott

"Whether you pushed me or pulled me, drained me or fueled me, loved me or left me, hurt me or helped me, you are part of my growth, and I thank you."

"As we grow older we realize that it is less important to have a ton of friends and more important to have a feel that are real."

"Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into flame by an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light." ~ Albert Schweitzer
