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.”
– Plutarch

“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
