From childhood to adulthood, the friendships we make and nurture along the journey can definitely make the trip more enjoyable. This Galentine's Day, be sure to let those who are nearest and dearest know how important their relationship is to you. From Virginia Woolfe to Muhammad Ali, we've found a dozen sweet and sentimental quotes penned by some bold-faced names to capture the essence of friendship.
Walking with a friend in the dark
Is better than walking alone in the light.
Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends we choose.
How many slams in an old screen door? Depends how loud you shut it. How many slices in bread? Depends how thin you cut it. How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live 'em. How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give 'em.
Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love.
Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.
Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.
A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allow you to grow.
A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
—Arnold H. Glasgow
Some people go to priests, others to poetry – I to my friends.
In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, for in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
Anybody can sympathize with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathize with a friend's success.
Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.
