Silences make the real conversations between friends. Not the saying but the never needing to say is what counts.
Margaret Lee Runbeck
Since there is nothing so well worth having as friends, never lose a chance to make them.
The bird a nest, the spider a web, man friendship.
The friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
Many a person has held close, throughout their entire lives, two friends that always remained strange to one another, because one of them attracted by virtue of similarity, the other by difference.
If it’s very painful for you to criticize your friends – you’re safe in doing it. But if you take the slightest pleasure in it, that’s the time to hold your tongue.
Alice Duer Miller
A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.
Never explain – your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway.
A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
Arnold H. Glasow
In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
It is very east to forgive others their mistakes; it takes more grit and gumption to forgive them for having witnessed your own.
It takes one person to forgive, it takes two people to be reunited.
Lewis B. Smedes
Thank you, God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough.
The ineffable joy of forgiving and being forgiven forms an ecstasy that might well arouse the envy of the gods.
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
Birth and death; we all move between these two unknowns.
Bryant H. McGill
Death most resembles a prophet who is without honor in his own land or a poet who is a stranger among his people.
Death will be a great relief. No more interviews.
Death’s in the good-bye.
Die, v.: To stop sinning suddenly.
Art is man’s expression of his joy in labor.
Henry A. Kissinger
Art is not a study of positive reality, it is the seeking for ideal truth.
Art is not a thing; it is a way.
Art is parasitic on life, just as criticism is parasitic on art.
Harry S. Truman
Art is science made clear.
