"A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him I may think aloud. I am arrived at last in the presence of a man so real and equal, that I may drop even those undermost garments of dissimulation, courtesy, and second thought, which men never put off, and may deal with him with the simplicity and wholeness with which one chemical atom meets another." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend. -Albert Camus
Our friends know us better than we know ourselves. Many times it's nice to give your friend a "just because" card with a meaningful friendship quote, but it can be difficult to find those kinds of cards in your local drugstore. Plus, sometimes a store bought card with a pre-printed message doesn't allow you to express how you really feel. A great tip is to buy blank greeting cards, post cards or stationary, write some of your favorite quotes and poems in them and send them to your friends. This is great because people rarely mail letters anymore, and it's always nice to see something in the mailbox besides bills and junk mail. You can also email and text friendship quotes to your friends to help them get through their day. Samuel Johnson said "A man should keep his friendships in constant repair," and friendship quotes are a great way to do just that!
