If you want to be a real warrior, then here’s our secret to you: we fight to protect others. We fight to protect the ones we love, the ones we respect, the ones we want to see prospering and achieving their goals, gaining their happiness. We do not wait for any reward for what we do. That is what true heroism is. That is what a warrior does.
You need to change your circle of friends if the ones you have keep trying to keep you in a box.
I have become intoxicated again. You are such a potent wine, my friend. To escape your withdrawal effects, tomorrow I will drink in excess. Alas, why make me love? I was aware, conscious, and sensible before. I am ill by cause of this illusion. The devil plays tricks on me more and more. I was a harp you immaculately plucked at will. Your score, the nightingale song within notes composed to imprison and bear me wings. Oh, if only they could hear how it sings! I am now beyond parched. My strings left untouched. You are no longer an oasis, my friend, but a mirage soon coming to an end.
When you are not needed, you are not needed. Period!
Antoine De Saint-exupery
Il faut longtemps cultiver un ami avant qu'il réclame son dû d'amitié. Il faut s'être ruiné durant des générations à réparer le vieux château qui croule, pour apprende à l'aimer.
The problem with 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend,' is that once the common enemy is gone, you usually end up fighting each other.
My scars show you I've been strong enough to endure the trauma of the world. My heart has no scars, my heart hangs in tatters only visible to those who see with more than their eyes. And my soul, well, my soul is comprised of pristine shatter, held together only because each individual piece is falling apart. They fall apart the right way though, that's why I still play this facade of being one and whole.
Shannon A. Thompson
We had grown into one another somewhere along the way. We were officially a team.
FRIEND Only when you have walked with me through the valley of hardship... When you have fought beside me against an evil foe... When you have cried with me through a painful heartache... When you have laughed with me at life joyous moments... When you have held my hand in silent sorrow at my loss... When you have trusted me in spite of your doubts,,, When you have believed in me when I lacked confidence to believe in my self... When you have defended my honor against lying tongues... When you have prayed for me when I was temped to go wrong... When you have stood with me as others walked away... Then and only then can you call me friend. For then you truly know ME. Then you will have paid the price of sisterhood/brotherhood. Then you will have forged a bond that will transcend time and live beyond life. Then you will truly be called a FRIEND who sticks closer than a brother... © 2013 From the book Meditations From my Garden by Stella Payton

A good friend is a healing friend.
We recognize a friend by researching his story. Our history changes completely.
Some seem to be desynchronized in their relationships. They feel oppressed, because they cannot move forward together and at the same pace. Their thinking is often incongruent, their motivation disparate. The phone could be a mediator, as it creates an impression to be a perfect reliable friend. However, in the end, it causes rather a sense of isolation, since it divides more than it unites. Eventually it appears not to be such a good friend but only a ghost friend. ( "Kein Schwein ruft mich an" )
If you step on everyone's toes, you will have no one to dance with.
She was the half-whispers born from half-thoughts, the half-breaths of dying half-hearts.
She was small. Her shadow moved in the dance of chaos before her as the inferno blazed behind her and licked the sky with its many tongues. She clutched an indistinguishable toy with both arms tightly. Her face was serene. Her eyes shone with courage more immense than the surrounding flames. She was small, but at that moment, I've never seen a bigger person.
Her laughter sounded like April showers, like whispered secrets, like glass wind-chimes.
It is better to lose friends than to lose God.
And in my novels I live many lives. Substitutes of spontaneity to replace a dreary reality. How I live for those inky black words and kaleidoscope colored experiences.
Win friends, multiply acquaintances, lose enemies.
Be you, be yourself, be happy again. Don’t let life pass by you. Don’t look back, look into the bright future. The future is as bright as the promise of God. Smile – it’s the most beautiful attire.

AN INVITATION TO MR. LIU Green lees of beer that's newly brewed, A little stove of red clay burns. As evening comes, the sky's about to snow, Can you drink one cup with me?
They say “as brave as lion”, they say “as clever as fox”, they say “ as friendly as dog” but nobody says “as something good as man”.
The tribulation is the sister of wisdom; it knows how to make it work in its favor, it grows with its perfume and establishes its friend.
When at a crossroads, my father was fond of saying “go with your gut.” “Intuition,” he said, “always has our best interests at heart.” It is a voice that can tell us who is friend and who is foe…Which ones to hold at arm’s length…And which ones to keep close. But too often, we become distracted by fear, doubt, our own stubborn hopes, and refuse to listen.
It only took a corny joke, but the smile I saw shone brighter than a glare, more profound than a star. And the best thing... it was so genuine. It was so her. I never thought I could fall more in love.
It is better to love your enemies than to hate your friends.
Friends I would like to challenge you to do an experiment, in the privacy of your studies. Everywhere you see the name “Jesus” in the Bible, replace it with the word light and see what that does to you.
Keep negative people in your prayers, not in your life.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend ... even if it's a monster.
If you can confess before a friend, you don't need a priest.
Genuine friendship is life!
Tell me why you don't do it?? "I can't..." what you can't "... It's too far"... why?? (Sometimes you keep asking yourself why this friend don't stay out... he is going fast to home... but why and why?? Why he don't want to stay with his best friend, why? So the school is important than friendship?? Why? How?)...
You are no greater than the friends you keep, the books you read, the heroes you admire, and the obstacles you overcome.
R. J. Palacio
I thought it would teach them a thing or two about empathy, and friendship, and loyalty. As it turns out, Jack Will didn't need to learn any of these virtues- he already had them in abundance.
Charles De Leusse
The mirror follows us, but it’s not a friend. (Le miroir nous suit, - Mais n’est un ami.)
Should we be enemies to be friends? if the warmness we needed sometimes.
Shall not I Learn place and wisdom? Have I not learned this, Only so much to hate my enemy, As though he might again become my friend, And so much good to wish to do my friend, As knowing he may yet become my foe?
If you have to block your closest friend in Facebook for some unavoidable reason, don't feel bad, because he/she does not deserve your friendship.
The main thing to remember when making friends is to genuinely be interested in the other person and their life. 'Curiosity is the key'.
The body is not a reliable friend
A true friend repays loyalty with loyalty, honesty with honesty and favours with favours.
And I kind of love it that you want to know everything.
A good friend will help you to discover the potentials you haven't uncovered. A bad friend will help you to cover up the potentials you have already recovered. Make your choice!
Mind your business" had been the motto of her childhood. But now that seemed like a failing in a friend.
A flower takes a while to grow, but can die in an instant; this is how it is with trust.
Trusting no man as his friend, he could not recognize his enemy when the latter actually appeared.
A good enemy can be better than the best of friend.
Whether it was in the maze of my fantastical mind or the allure of her gossamer eyes, they took me to undiscovered worlds of azure and metamorphosis. The air shimmered with every breath, the water tightened with every sound.
A real businessman value his partners like friends and his partnership like friendship.
