To be capable of steady friendship or lasting love, are the two greatest proofs,
not only of goodness of heart, but of strength of mind.- William Hazlitt
Beauty, truth, friendship, love, creation – these are the great values of life.
We can’t prove them, or explain them, yet they are the most stable things in our lives.
- Jesse Herman Holmes
There can be no friendship when there is no freedom.
Friendship loves the free air, and will not be fenced up in straight and narrow enclosures.- William Penn
The language of friendship is not words but meanings.
- Henry David Thoreau
