#1. Friendship is a miracle by which a person consents to view from a certain distance, without coming any nearer, the very being who is as necessary to him as food. - Author: Simone Weil
Friendship Distance quotes by Simone Weil
#2. Friendship is not diminished by distance or time, by imprisonment or war, by suffering or silence. It is in these things that it roots most deeply. - Author: Pam Brown
Friendship Distance quotes by Pam Brown
#3. Our life is a short time in expectation, a time in which sadness and joy kiss each other at every moment. There is a quality of sadness that pervades all the moments of our lives. It seems that there is no such thing as a clear-cut pure joy, but that even in the most happy moments of our existence we sense a tinge of sadness. In every satisfaction, there is an awareness of limitations. In every success, there is the fear of jealousy. Behind every smile, there is a tear. In every embrace, there is loneliness. In every friendship, distance. And in all forms of light, there is the knowledge of surrounding darkness ... But this intimate experience in which every bit of life is touched by a bit of death can point us beyond the limits of our existence. It can do so by making us look forward in expectation to the day when our hearts will be filled with perfect joy, a joy that no one shall take away from us. - Author: Henri J.M. Nouwen
Friendship Distance quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen

#8. Why you like photography so much? Because it's just the camera and me showing everyone else what we can see. It's telling stories. - Author: Lindsey Kelk
Friendship Distance quotes by Lindsey Kelk
#9. I had had my own dream of writing. The dream stayed with me on and off, and with Chris working on his book, he encouraged me to work on my own.
But my time was tight. I was volunteering at the kids' school, helping Chris, and just being a mom. Finally, Chris pushed me to get going.
"Couldn't you run to Starbucks for a few hours when I get home and work on it?" he asked.
I did that for a while. I'd make dinner before I left, then go out and work. Unfortunately, it was still very hard to be consistent-the kids might get sick, or there were just other interruptions and things that had to be done.
Finally, I got to the point where I thought, God is telling me you'll do it, but not now.
Now that I've gained some distance from it, I've realized that putting it down temporarily was actually a blessing. Not only have I gained a perspective on what I was trying to say, but I've also gotten more insights into people and situations that are similar to those I was trying to write about.
And I wouldn't trade the time I spent with Chris for a dozen novels, all of them bestsellers. - Author: Taya Kyle
Friendship Distance quotes by Taya Kyle
#10. Even the utmost good-will and harmony and practical kindness are not sufficient for Friendship, for Friends do not live in harmony merely, as some say, but in melody. We do not wish for Friends to feed and clothe our bodies, -neighbors are kind enough for that, -but to do the like office to our spirits. For this few are rich enough, however well disposed they may be. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Friendship Distance quotes by Henry David Thoreau

Friendship Distance quotes by Katrina Leno
#12. It all comes down to who's by your side. - Author: Nicholas Sparks
Friendship Distance quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#13. If you genuinely care about someone, you won't let them ruin themselves. It's as simple as that.
Don't use your 'supportive friend' excuse to justify your ignorance.
If someone in your life is living a self-destructive lifestyle, don't encourage them. Don't stand on the sidelines and watch. Do something.
Tell them they're worth more than that. That they're bigger than what they're facing. Tell them there are better ways to heal. Better ways to grow.
Tell them they can be friends with better people.Tell them there's no escape from reality but it only gets better if you face it. Tell them they're killing themselves slowly by intaking drugs.
Tell them you love them and don't want them to get hurt. Tell them that you care.

Do. Everything. You. Can.
Because even if they may not listen, at least you'll know you tried. - Author: Ambu
Friendship Distance quotes by Ambu
#14. For freemen like brothers agree; With one spirit endured, they one friendship pursued, And their temple was Liberty Tree - Author: Thomas Paine
Friendship Distance quotes by Thomas Paine
#15. For most of my life I have struggled to find God, to know God, to love God. I have tried hard to follow the guidelines of the spiritual life - pray always, work for others, read the Scriptures - and to avoid the many temptations to dissipate myself. I have failed many times but always tried again, even when I was close to despair.
Now I wonder whether I have sufficiently realized that during all this time God has been trying to find me, to know me, and to love me. The question is not "How am I to find God?" but "How am I to let myself be found by him?" The question is not "How am I to know God?" but "How am I to let myself be known by God?" And, finally, the question is not "How am I to love God?" but "How am I to let myself be loved by God?" God is looking into the distance for me, trying to find me, and longing to bring me home. - Author: Henri J.M. Nouwen
Friendship Distance quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#16. It can take a lifetime to build up a friendship- it can take a second to make an enemy. - Author: Cecelia Ahern
Friendship Distance quotes by Cecelia Ahern
#17. While gently pushing her towards the dressing room, Lazarus ventured, "Can I ask you something kind of personal?"

Pulling her shirt over her head behind the curtain, and holding her hand out for the corset, she replied, "Anything for you, Laz."

"How are you still friends with him?"

"Can you hook this thing?" Holding the corset on her stomach, Lazarus peeked through the curtain, fingers deftly snapping the twenty hook-and-eye latches. "He saved my life. There are a million reasons to hate him, but there are a million and one reasons to forgive him for his faults."

Twisting to look in the mirror, adjusting her breasts in the tight silk, she continued, "He'll say the worst thing at the worst possible time, except every once in awhile, he says the one most perfect thing that just makes you want to cry from happiness. He knows the exact way you need to be touched at any moment, in any mood, like he's fucking telepathic. He'll make you want to scream when he ignores you, but then you find out he knows your favorite color, your favorite meal, what movie makes you cry and he can list every little thing in the entire world that you hate. And mostly? Well," Turning to face Lazarus and strike a pose, "I just can't fucking stop. - Author: Shannon Noelle Long

#21. It's best to love your family as you would a Siberian tiger-from a distance, preferably separated by bars. - Author: Stephan Pastis
Friendship Distance quotes by Stephan Pastis
I do not carry a sickle or scythe.
I only wear a hooded black robe when it's cold.
And I don't have those skull-like facial features you seem to enjoy pinning on me from a distance. You want to know what I truly look like? I'll help you out. Find yourself a mirror while I continue. - Author: Markus Zusak
Friendship Distance quotes by Markus Zusak
#23. Sometimes you're trapped in writing songs and you don't have enough distance from what you do anymore and you need the talent and the years of other people to come and jump in. - Author: Keren Ann
Friendship Distance quotes by Keren Ann
#24. We've made it private, contained it in family, when its audacity is in its potential to cross tribal lines. We've fetishized it as romance, when its true measure is a quality of sustained, practical care. We've lived it as a feeling, when it is a way of being. It is the elemental experience we all desire and seek, most of our days, to give and receive. The sliver of love's potential that the Greeks separated out as eros is where we load so much of our desire, center so much of our imagination about delight and despair, define so much of our sense of completion. There is the love the Greeks called filia - the love of friendship. There is the love they called agape - love as embodied compassion, expressions of kindness that might be given to a neighbor or a stranger. The Metta of the root Buddhist Pali tongue, "lovingkindness," carries the nuance of benevolent, active interest in others known and unknown, and its cultivation begins with compassion towards oneself. - Author: Krista Tippett
Friendship Distance quotes by Krista Tippett
#25. Drills are not meant to be treated as if distance matters. Instead, take time to correctly establish good patterns and habits while muscle memory to kick in. - Author: Matt Vincent
Friendship Distance quotes by Matt Vincent
#26. The distance between a man and pride is the distance between himself and destruction. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Friendship Distance quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#27. Is it a wolf I hear,
Howling his lonely communion
With the unpiloted stars,
Or merely the self importance and servitude
In the bark of a dog?
How many millenia did it take,
Twisting and torturing
The pride from the one
To make a tool,
The other?
And how do we measure the distance from spirit to spirit?
And who do we find to blame? - Author: Richard K. Morgan
Friendship Distance quotes by Richard K. Morgan
#28. It may be worth noticing as a curious circumstance, when persons past forty before they were at all acquainted form together a very close intimacy of friendship. For grafts of old wood to take, there must be a wonderful congeniality between the trees. - Author: Richard Whately
Friendship Distance quotes by Richard Whately
#29. And my own affairs were as bad, as dismal, as the day I had been born. The only difference was that now I could drink now and then, though never often enough. Drink was the only thing that kept a man from feeling forever stunned and useless. Everything else just kept picking and picking, hacking away. And nothing was interesting, nothing. The people were restrictive and careful, all alike. And I've got to live with these fuckers for the rest of my life, I thought. God, they all had assholes and sexual organs and their mouths and their armpits. They shit and they chattered and they were dull as horse dung. The girls looked good from a distance, the sun shining through their dresses, their hair. But get up close and listen to their minds running out of their mouths, you felt like digging in under a hill and hiding out with a tommy-gun. I would certainly never be able to be happy, to get married, I could never have children. Hell, I couldn't even get a job as a dishwasher. - Author: Charles Bukowski
Friendship Distance quotes by Charles Bukowski
#30. How can long months crease into a day when something so far comes near after long. - Author: Suyasha Subedi
Friendship Distance quotes by Suyasha Subedi
#31. Muslims are just as peace-loving as the Christians, Hindus, Jews or Buddhists. It's the fundamentalists from whom people should keep distance, not the muslims. - Author: Abhijit Naskar
Friendship Distance quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#32. There's a taste in the air, sweet and vaguely antiseptic, that reminds him of his teenage years in these streets, and of a general state of longing, a hunger for life to begin that from this distance seems like happiness. - Author: Ian McEwan
Friendship Distance quotes by Ian McEwan
#33. Every relationship is a transaction. Every so-called friendship begins with a promise that must be kept by both parties. - Author: Alexandra Bracken
Friendship Distance quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#34. My best ideas come when I distance myself from day-to-day operations. It gives me more focus. - Author: Ziad K. Abdelnour
Friendship Distance quotes by Ziad K. Abdelnour

Friendship Distance quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti

Friendship Distance quotes by William Shakespeare
#38. No doctor can write a prescription for friendship and love: These are complex and hard-earned capacities. You don't need a history of trauma to feel self-conscious and even panicked at a party with strangers - but trauma can turn the whole world into a gathering of aliens. - Author: Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Friendship Distance quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#39. Sometimes I have the strangest feeling about you. Especially when you are near me as you are now. It feels as though I had a string tied here under my left rib where my heart is, tightly knotted to you in a similar fashion. And when you go to Ireland, with all that distance between us, I am afraid that this cord will be snapped, and I shall bleed inwardly. - Author: Charlotte Bronte
Friendship Distance quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#40. Read as you taste fruit or savor wine, or enjoy friendship, love or life. - Author: George Herbert
Friendship Distance quotes by George Herbert
