Jeg elsker sitater, fordi de gir så mye visdom uten å bruke for mange ord. Her er mine 15 favorittsitater om vennskap på engelsk.

1. “How rare and wonderful is that flash of a moment when we realize we have discovered a friend.” –  William Rotsler 

2. “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”.  – Anais Nin

3.  “There is nothing we like to see so much as the gleam of pleasure in a person’s eye when he feels that we have sympathized with him, understood him. At these moments something fine and spiritual passes between two friends. These are the moments worth living.”  – Don Marquis

4. “One’s friends are that part of the human race with which one can be human.”  – George Santayana

5. “A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked” – Bernard Meltzer

6. “The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you’ve had.”  – Ukjent

7. “Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.”  – Gloria Naylor

8. “The proper office of a friend is to side with you when you are wrong. Nearly anybody will side with you when you are right.” – Mark Twain

9. “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

10. “We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

11.  “A sense of duty is useful in work, but offensive in personal relations. People wish to be liked, not be endured with patient resignation.” – Bertrand Russell

12. “It’s really amazing when two strangers become the best of friends, but it’s really sad when the best of friends become two strangers.”  – Raphnie

13. “When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle 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.” – Henri Nouwen

14. “The only way to have a friend is to be one.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

15. “Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he is dead”. ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
