A friend is someone …

… who fills our lives with beauty, joy and grace and makes the world we live in, a better, happier place;

… whom we can lean on when our heart aches but who will never take advantage of our leaning;

… whom you would want to have near you when you are dying and whom you would like to be with when you are living;

… who will get down on his knees beside you when you are down and forget that he did so when you are on your feet;

… who makes allowance for your limitations without allowing them to obscure your talents;

… who knows all about you and likes you anyway. - Christi Mary Warner

…who is there for you when he’d rather be anywhere else. - Len Wein

… with whom you dare to be yourself. - Frank Crane

A friend is …

… a priceless gem for the crown of life here and a cherished star in memory forever. - Cyrus S. Nusbaum

…one who overlooks your failures and tolerates your success! - Doug Larson

… someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself. - Jim Morrison

… a gift you give yourself. - Robert Luis Stevenson

… a second self. - Aristotle

… not an object to be possessed but a subject to be cherished.

… a treasure more precious than gold.

… never known until needed.

… easier lost than found.
