Top 100+ Friendship and Encouragement Songs

Friendship & Encouragement Songs

Friends are one of the most valuable tools in life. It is always said that if you have one best friend in your lifetime, then you have lived a successful life.

Friendship comes in all sorts, but that’s what makes it so interesting. Here are a few quotes to get your brains in motion:

“Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for ’tis better to be alone than in bad company.”
George Washington (1732 – 1799) US Statesman.

“Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried,
Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel;
But do not dull thy palm with entertainment
Of each new-hatch’d, unfledg’d comrade.”
– William Shakespeare

“Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.”
Helen Keller

Having a friend, a buddy, someone to share memories with is a wonderful part of life. It is an opportunity to go outside the family circle, and build relationships with others along the road to life. It does take time, mind you. It was Georgia O’Keeffe who said: “Nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”
