Famous quotes containing the words characters, friends, fosters, home and/or imaginary:
“To marry a man out of pity is folly; and, if you think you are going to influence the kind of fellow who has never had a chance, poor devil, you are profoundly mistaken. One can only influence the strong characters in life, not the weak; and it is the height of vanity to suppose that you can make an honest man of anyone.”
—Margot Asquith (18641945)

For friends are gone come once adversity.
When money yet remaineth safe in chest,
That quickly can thee bring from misery.
Fair face show friends when riches do abound;”
—Barnabe Googe (15401594)
“One who forgives an affront fosters friendship, but one who dwells on disputes will alienate a friend.”
—Bible: Hebrew, Proverbs 17:9.
“My home policy: I wage war; my foreign policy: I wage war. All the time I wage war.”

“Where my imaginary line
Bends square in woods, an iron spine
And pile of real rocks have been founded.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
