True friendship seeks no change in the other.
We should always leave someone with the desire to spend more time with us.
We should always choose friends as we do shoes: always go with the sensible one, not the pretty one.
The gulf between a stranger becoming a friend is usually crossed by a kind word, a handshake, or an arm around the shoulder.
We are friends by choice.
“You can make more friends in two months by being interested in other people than in two years of trying to get people interested in you.” ~Dale Carnegie
