Quote Week, Day 3: Friendship

I just wrote last week about the importance of friendship, so now I want to share some of my favorite quotes on friendship. I like these because they make me think about how we make friends, what they know about us, and the huge impact friendship has on our lives.

5+ Quotes on Friendship

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

Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation. George Washington

Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them? Abraham Lincoln

A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities. William Arthur Ward
