9 Friendship Quotes ...


Poets, philosophers, writers, politicians, public figures – they lived in different times, did very different things, lived totally different lives and yet… they all have at least one thing in common – the need to discuss, understand and experience a social and emotional phenomenon known as “friendship”.
