Friendship, simply put

"A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be." 
 ~Douglas Pagels

Friendship with Jesus!
Fellowship divine!
O what blessed, sweet communion!
Jesus is a Friend of mine.
A Friend when other friendships cease,
A Friend when others fail,
A Friend Who gives me joy and peace,
A Friend when foes assail!
~Friendship with Jesus hymn

"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity." 
~Proverbs 17:17

"True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable."
~Dave Tyson Gentry

What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!
~Joseph M. Scriven

"Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy." 
~Proverbs 27:6

"Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait for the answer." 
~Author Unknown

"A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." 
~Proverbs 18:24
