If you can survive 11 days in cramped quarters with a friend and come out laughing, your friendship is the real deal.
OPRAH WINFREY, O Magazine, Aug. 2006
Have no friends not equal to yourself.
CONFUCIUS, The Wisdom of Confucius
Even the utmost good-will and harmony and practical kindness are not sufficient for Friendship, for Friends do not live in harmony merely, as some say, but in melody. We do not wish for Friends to feed and clothe our bodies--neighbors are kind enough for that--but to do the like office to our spirits.
HENRY DAVID THOREAU, Friendship
