Quotations about friends and friendship

Bhartrhari – The friendships between good and evil men

The friendships formed between good and evil men differ. The friendship of the good, at first faint like the morning light, continually increases; the friendship of the evil at the very beginning is like the light of midday, and dies away like the light of evening.

Herodotus – A real friend exalts

Share this quote:
One man envies the success in life of another, and hates him in secret; nor is he willing to give him good advice when he is consulted, except it be by some wonderful effort of good feeling, and there are, alas, few such men in the world. A real friend, on the other hand, exalts in his friend’s happiness, rejoices in all his joys, and is ready to afford him the best advice.

Herodotus   (484 BC-425 BC)
