A faithful FRIEND is the medicine of life.
A FRIEND is a second self.
A FRIEND is someone who knows all about you, and loves
you just the same.

he knows him.

and sudden, fall upon us....
A true FRIEND is the greatest of all blessings, and that which we take the least care of all to acquire.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Against a foe I can myself defend–
But Heaven protect me from a blundering FRIEND !
D´Arcy W. Thompson

Be civil to all; sociable to many; familiar with few; FRIEND to one; enemy to none.
Be slow in choosing a FRIEND, slower in changing.
By the light of the moon,
My FRIEND Pierrot,
Lend me thy pen
to write a word;
My candle is out,
I’ve no more fire,
Open your door to me,
for the love of God.
Anonymous (French Song)
Consult your FRIEND on all things, especially on those which respect yourself. His counsel may then be useful where your own self-love might impair your judgment.
Death is a FRIEND of ours; and he that is not ready to entertain him is not at home.
Death is our FRIEND in that sense – life after life it faces
us with the meaning of the ultimate.
