All love that has not friendship for its base, is like a mansion built upon the sand.
“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.”– Ralph Waldo Emerson
“We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over.”– Ray Bradbury
“Ultimately the bond of all companionship, whether in marriage or in friendship, is conversation.”– Oscar Wilde
“Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love. Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.”– Elie Weisel
“No matter how tired I am, I get dinner at least once a week with my girlfriends. Or have a sleepover. Otherwise my life is just all work.”– Jennifer Lawrence
