False friends are like our shadow, keeping close to us while we walk in the sunshine, but leaving us the instant we cross into the shade.
Friends of convenience, are not true friends at all.
You can always tell a real friend; when you've made a fool of yourself, they don't feel you've done a permanent job.
Real friendship is shown in times of trouble; prosperity is full of friends.
A true friend is someone who thinks you're a good egg, even if you have a crack.
It is not so much our friends' help that helps us as the confident knowledge that they will help us.
Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness.
Don't be afraid of enemies who attack you. Be afraid of the friends who flatter you.
A best friend won't agree with you to make you happy. They will say what needs to be said, no matter you want to hear it or not.
The most memorable people in life will be the friends who loved you when you weren't very lovable.
