that someone else believes in him

and is willing to trust him

with his friendship

Friendship Quotes and Words Contributed by Readers

My friend,
Briefly we walk together on life's journey.
Your voice is compassion, understanding.
Aware of their power, you offer words gently, as a gift.
You paint a canvas of cause and effect, impartial and dispassionate.
No triumph in your voice, nor gleam of passion in your eyes; only infinite patience.
I walk tall beside you.

(contributed by Hans Schmidt, Australia)

Thank you for your gifts of love and friendship.

(words contributed by Susan Wain, USA)

Don't be dismayed at good-byes.
A farewell is necessary before you can meet again.
And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes,
is certain for those who are friends.

~ Richard Bach
(quote contributed by Marci Penner, USA)

A bond so true,
that's shared by few...
I'll call you my friend,
until the very end...

Sometimes in life, you find a special friend.
Someone who changes your life just by being a part of it.
Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop.
Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world.
Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door
just waiting for you to open it.
This is forever friendship.

When you're down and the world seems dark and empty,
your forever friend lifts you up in spirit
and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full.
Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times.

If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows.
If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on.
Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay.
And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry.
You have a forever friend, and forever has no end.
