Quotable Sunday...Friends..

I love this wonderful Sunday post challenge, brought to us from Toni.
And I am going to focus on:
Quotes about Friends.

This is because it has been my family and my friends (both in my real world, and in my blogging world) who have been a blessing to me, as we have been going through the stress of life and death for this last month!

Friends are like melons; shall I tell you why? To find one good you must one hundred try. -- Claude Mermet

"The only way to have a friend is to be one."
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend.-- Abraham Lincoln

One who looks for a friend without faults will have none. -- Hasidic Saying

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.-- Walter Winchell

Friends are needed both for joy and for sorrow. -- Samuel Paterson

A friend is one who knows us, but loves us anyway. -- Fr. Jerome Cummings

Remember, the greatest gift is not found in a store nor under a tree, but in the hearts of true friends. -- Cindy Lew

Thanks, dear friends :-)

  6. Oh these are all wonderful quotes and a great idea for a Sunday, too. The last one made me giggle. Quite the opposite of the Friends are Like Butterflies quote (if they come back to you, they're yours, if they don't they never were).....just tie 'em up instead! hehe!

    Thanks for the smiles today.
