There is no possession more valuable than a good and faithful friend.

I'm thankful enough or blessed enough to be able to say that Miles Davis was a friend when he was alive, and he was a wonderful mentor and really, really funny, you know.

How many a year has passed and gone and many gamble has been lost and won, and many a road taken by a friend and each one I've never seen again.

I’m a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down.

When a sinister person means to be your enemy, they always start by trying to become your friend.

Listen! Clam up your mouth and be silent like an oyster shell, for that tongue of yours is the enemy of the soul, my friend. When the lips are silent, the heart has a hundred tongues.

It pays to know the enemy - not least because at some time you may have the opportunity to turn him into a friend.

If people think nature is their friend, then they sure don't need an enemy.

There are no laws, there are no rules, just grab your friend and love him.

Plato is my friend — Aristotle is my friend — but my greatest friend is truth.
