When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.

The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies – Aristotle

Life is an awful, ugly place to not have a best friend – I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.

You may ask: How much love is inside your friend? It really depends how much you give them. When a friend talks about you, it is different. You feel safe and comfortable

I look at all the broken relationships and marriages around me – it is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born – Anaïs Nin

I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together.

Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.

And to end, there is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate!
