When a friend does something wrong, don't forget all the things they did right.
A true friend freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably. ~ William Penn
My best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake. ~ Aristotle
One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives. ~ Euripides
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. ~ Henri Nouwen
