Thankyou again to YellowRose for the beautiful banner! 13 Friendship quotes I'd like to share! My sister-in-law sent me pics of my nieces this week, got me thinking about, she may be family, but I'm also lucky to have her as a friend. We've traded baby clothes, and baby swings. She hates when I tell the story about the first time I met her, she was 12 and rollerskated in her house, with ponytails and chewing gum. Now she's 28, and a fantastic mother, sister, and friend. So this week I'm dedicating these friendship quotes to her and my nieces, may they be more than sisters, but best friends! 1.)A friend is a present you give yourself. -- Robert Louis Stevenson 2.)A friend hears the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.-- Anonymous 3.)A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world. -- Leo Buscaglia 4.)Friendship doubles our joy and divides our grief.-- Swedish proverb 5.)A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.-- Walter Winchell 6.)Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.-George Eliot 7.)In prosperity, our friends know us; in adversity, we know our friends.-John Churton Collins 8.)Never Explain — your Friends do not need it and your Enemies will not believeyou anyway.-Elbert Hubbard 9.)Tis the privilege of friendship to talk nonsense, and have her nonsense respected- Charles Lamb 10.)No man will ever bring out of the Presidency the reputation which carries him into it...To myself, personally, it brings nothing but increasing drudgery and daily loss of friends.- Thomas Jefferson 11.)A friend is someone who dances with you in the sunlight, And walks with you in the shadows-Unknown 12.)He was a true friend, he stabbed me in the front-Unknown 13.)Be true to your work, your word, and your friend-Henry David Threau

ahh, what lovely quotes. I do not get on with my SiL at all - we dissapprove of pretty much everything about each other;-) But I am fortunate enough to have good friends.

i like 8 and 12.
of not having to explain because our closest friends know what we're feeling or thinking.

and a real friend does stab you in front. i'd choose that anytime.

A friend is one that will help you kill your ex-spouse. A Good friend is one that helps you hide the body.
Wonderful list. Yours that is...lol
