Have friends. 'Tis a second existence
Nothing is more dangerous than a friend without discretion; even a prudent enemy is preferable
Nothing is as dangerous as an ignorant friend; a wise enemy is to be preferred
While your friend holds you affectionately by both your hands you are safe, for you can watch both of his
Folly is wont to have more followers and comrades than discretion
Don't listen to friends when the friend inside you says �Do this�
Make not a bosom friend of a melancholy soul; he'll be sure to aggravate thy adversity and lessen thy prosperity. He goes always heavily loaded, and thou must bear half. He is never in a good humor, and may easily get into a bad one, and fall out with thee
Purchase not friends by gifts; when thou ceasest to give, such will cease to love
No man can be happy without a friend, nor be sure of his friend till he is unhappy
If you have one true friend you have more than your share

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."
