I love quotes. Adore them. Taking a break from studying to share a few:

“Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down.” –Source Unknown

“If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.”
–A.A. Milne

“One measure of friendship consists not in the number of things friends can discuss, but in the number of things they need no longer mention.”
–Clifton Fadiman

“A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one’s heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.” –Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

“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.” –Christian Nevell Bovee

“The road to a friend’s house is never long.” –Danish Proverb

“What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun. A true friend is more to be esteemed than kinsfolk.”
–Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Neque est ullum certius amicitiae vinculum, quam consensus et societas consiliorum et voluntatum.” –Marcus Tullius Cicero

“The real test of friendship is: can you literally do nothing with the other person? Can you enjoy those moments of life that are utterly simple?” –Eugene Kennedy

“Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.” –G. Randolf

“Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow grow, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.” –George Washington

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together…there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart…I’ll always be with you.” –A.A. Milne

“We don’t always have a choice how we get to know one another. Sometimes, people fall into our lives cleanly – as if out of the sky, or as if there were a direct flight from Heaven to Earth – the same way we lose people, who once seemed they would always be part of our lives.”
–John Irving
