True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable.
A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.
Thy friendship oft has made my heart to ache; do be my enemy for friendship's sake.
One friend in a lifetime is much, two are many, three are hardly possible. Friendship needs a certain parallelism of life, a community of thought, a rivalry of aim.
