Friendship everywhere

Guest Author - Amy Packham

"True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it be lost."
- Charles Caleb Colton


For my friends birthday this weekend, we got her a calender for next year, on each of the months it had a quote on it about friendship. What I found interesting is that most of the quotes written on these months are not explaining what it is like to have a friends, or what people do with their friends, but it is defining a friend and what different people would describe a friend to be. Instead of using these quotes I thought I would go on the internet and see what the majority of friendship quotes here summarize to be like. Interestingly, the first quotes that came up on the page were these:

"My friends are my estate."
- Emily Dickinson

"A friend is one who walks in when others walk out"
-Walter Winchell

"A friend is someone who is there for you when he'd rather be anywhere else."
- Len Wein - Sent by Paulo Louro

"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."
- Sent by Donna Roberts

"A friend is one who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself."
- Sent by Lysha


We can see that all 5 of these quotes are defining what a friend is, some in metaphorical terms and some literal. We are seeing a friend being defined as someone who believes in your, someone who knows you well, someone who is there for you. These are all quite similar qualities of a friend but expressed in different ways and I think there are so many quotes about friendship which take the form of defining a friend because many people have their different opinions on what a friend is and what a friend should be.

"Everyone is a friend, until they prove otherwise."
- Steve


I liked this quote a lot, it is very simplistic and is a different form than just defining what a friend is. It is a very general quote but is true in saying that everyone is a friend, everyone has the potential to be a friend and can carry this through unless they do something to jeopardize this.

What other quotes give us an insight into what a friend can be?
