When one is trying to do something beyond his known powers it is useless to seek the approval of friends. Friends are at their best in moments of defeat.
Reprove your friend in secret and praise him openly
When our friends are present we ought to treat them well; and when they are absent, to speak of them well
A friend is one who has the same enemies as you have
Friends are the leaders of the bosom, being more ourselves than we are, and we complement our affections in theirs
Our friends interpret the world and ourselves to us, if we take them tenderly and truly
What wealth it is to have such friends that we cannot think of them without elevation
The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend
The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend
A man cannot be said to succeed in this life who does not satisfy one friend

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
