Below is a link to an article I wrote for The Metro; inspired by my friendship with my very best friend who may live hundreds of miles away, but is still the closest person to me.
To pad this out, as I’m solely publishing this to provide a link to my piece to The Metro, here are a few of my favourite quotes about friendship that don’t make me sick:
“There is magic in long-distance friendships. They let you relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound.”
– Diana Cortes
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
– C.S. Lewis
“True friendship comes when the silence between two people is comfortable.”
– David Tyson
“Don’t make friends who are comfortable to be with. Make friends who will force you to lever yourself up.”
– Thomas J. Watson
“I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.”
“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Anybody can sympathise with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathise with a friend’s success.”
– Oscar Wilde
