If you are composing a speech or writing a paper and need some sayings or quotes about friendship, here are a few for you to consider:

The more I think it over, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people. – Vincent van Gogh

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. – Marcel Proust

The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. – Elizabeth Foley

Friendship is a sheltering tree. – Samuel Coleridge

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words. – Rachel Naomi Remen

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life. – Mark Twain

Consult your friend on all things, especially on those which respect yourself. His counsel may then be useful where your own self-love might impair your judgment. – Seneca

The only way to have a friend is to be one. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
