Quotes of the Day for 28 September 2000 – Friendship

The response was good to the quotes on "Friendship" last week, and I only used a small part of the collection, so here are four more.

Van's signature

The quotes:

Men kick friendship around like a football, but it doesn't seem to crack. Women treat it like glass and it goes to pieces.
     - Anne Spencer Morrow Lindbergh

No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth.
     - Robert Southey

It is only the great hearted who can be true friends. The mean and cowardly, can never know what true friendship means.
     - Charles Kingsley

What a wretched lot of old shrivelled creatures we shall be by-and-by. Never mind; the uglier we get in the eyes of others, the lovelier we shall be to each other; that has always been my firm faith about friendship.
     - Marie Dressler
