Famous quotes containing the word friend:

    When a friend calls to me from the road
    And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
    I don’t stand still and look around
    On all the hills I haven’t hoed....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    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.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    When one by one our ties are torn,
    And friend from friend is snatched forlorn;
    When man is left alone to mourn,
    Oh! then how sweet it is to die!
    Anna Letitia (Aikin)
