Thoughts on Thursday: Friendship

I recently lost two highly valued friendships.  They weren't lost due to death, but due either to simply growing apart, an inflated ego, or a casual disregard for another's feelings.  Whatever the reason, I am heartbroken.  

Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things. ~Author Unknown

A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world. ~Leo Buscaglia

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

A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out. ~Grace Pulpit

Constant use will not wear ragged the fabric of friendship. ~Dorothy Parker

The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had. ~Author Unknown

The language of friendship is not words but meanings. ~Henry David Thoreau

Friends are kisses blown to us by angels. ~Author Unknown

A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you are half-cracked. ~Author Unknown

Strangers are just friends waiting to happen. ~Rod McKuen

A good friend is a connection to life - a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world. ~Lois Wyse

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive. ~Anäis Nin

Since there is nothing so well worth having as friends, never lose a chance to make them. ~Francesco Guicciardini


  1. If the friendship was strong it will be renewed :-)

  2. Wow, I'm sorry about your friendship losses. That must be hard. One of my professors talked a lot about how certain friendships are not meant to last forever. Rather, they are meant for a specific season of your life. "Crossroad" friends that take you from one season to another.

    I hope that you feel more peace about these friendships, and that in time, they renew :)

    Thank you for sharing these great quotes! How beautiful.
