Friends

Ralph Waldo Emerson

St. Basil

A tree is known by its fruit; a man by deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

Hal Elrod

Research has shown that we virtually become like the average of the five people we spend the most time with. Who you spend your time with may be the single most determining factor in the person you become and in your quality of life.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man is known by the books he reads, by the company he keeps, by the praise he gives…

Aesop

If you choose bad companions, no one will believe that you are anything but bad yourself.

Aristotle

In poverty and other misfortunes of life, true friends are a sure refuge. The young they keep out of mischief; to the old they are a comfort and aid in their weakness, and those in the prime of life they incite to noble deeds.

Abraham Lincoln

I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.

B.C. Forbes

Cheerfulness is among the most laudable virtues. It gains you the good will and friendship of others. It blesses those who practice it and those upon whom it is bestowed.

Helen Keller

Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.

George Washington

Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for ’tis better to be alone than in bad company.

Elizabeth Ann Seton

If I had to advise parents, I should tell them to take great care about the people with whom their children associate . . . Much harm may result from bad company, and we are inclined by nature to follow what is worse than what is better.
