Friendship is a sweet attraction of the heart, towards the merit we esteem, or the perfections we admire; and produces a mutual inclination between two persons, to promote each other’s interest, knowledge, virtue, and happiness. - Wellins Calcott

Friendship is but another name for an alliance with the follies and misfortunes of others. Our own share of miseries is sufficient: why enter then as volunteers into those of another? Is there so little gall poured into our cup, that we must need help to drink that of our neighbor? - Thomas Jefferson

Friendship is not an obsolete sentiment. It is as true now as in Aristotle's time that no one would care to live without friends, though he had all other good things. It is still necessary to our life in its largest sense. - Hugh B. Black
