Victor Hugo

We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly embracing each other.
Liciano De Crescenzo

The heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.

has not a friend to spare.
While he who has one enemy
shall meet him everywhere.

Your friend is that man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
Elbert Hubbard

Such love I cannot analyse;
it does not rest in lips or eyes,
neither in kisses nor caress.
Partly, I know, it's gentleness
and understanding in one word
or in brief letters. It's preserved
by trust and by respect and awe.
These are the words I'm feeling for.
Two people, yes, two lasting friends.
The giving comes, the taking ends.
There is no measure for such things.
For this all Nature slows and sings.
Elizabeth Jennings

How can one explain a feeling in the air?
How can one explain a feeling very rare?
How can one define a person always there..
one who says "no matter what I care".
A lot of times I think of this when I am feeling down
and by the time that I am through high spirits come around.
Even words from an angel's tongue are limited, this is true.
No words can explain the kind of friend like you!!

Gold
A heart of gold will never rust,
it is too precious and too fine.
Those who know it, think it to be
sweeter than the sweetest wine.

More valuable than any treasure,
shining brighter than anything known.
Its love is stronger than any weapon,
those who know it are never alone.

Nothing else like it on this earth
hearts of brass and silver cannot compare
to the beauty and warmth it offers each day,
and with it my soul shall never be bare.
Ellen Strauss

Shining Star
A friend is like a shining star,
coming out where ever you are.
When the darkness is all there is to greet you
your star will be there to always lead you.
Shining the way for you to see,
the path you need forever to be.
So when the darkness falls before your eyes,
your shining star is there, just look toward the skies.
Sherry L. Carty

A Friend
A friend is like a flower,
a rose to be exact,
Or maybe like a brand new gate
that never comes unlatched.
A friend is like an owl,
both beautiful and wise.
Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost,
whose spirit never dies.
A friend is like those blades of grass
you can never mow,
standing straight, tall, and proud
in a perfect little row.
A friend is like a heart that goes
strong until the end.
Where would we be in this world
if we didn't have a friend.
