J.K. Rowling
“Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same: Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends . . . friends . . . friends . . .”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Coco J. Ginger
“Sometimes you want to say, “I love you, but…”
Yet the “but” takes away the ‘I love you’. In love their are no ‘buts’ or ‘if’s’ or ‘when’. It’s just there, and always. No beginning, no end. It’s the condition-less state of the heart. Not a feeling that comes and goes at the whim of the emotions. It is there in our heart, a part of our heart…eventually grafting itself into each limb and cell of our bodies. Love changes our brain, the way we move and talk. Love lives in our spirit and graces us with its presence each day, until death.

To say “I love you, but….” is to say, “I did not love you at all”.

I say this to you now: I love you, with no beginning, no end. I love you as you have become an extra necessary organ in my body. I love you as only a girl could love a boy. Without fear. Without expectations. Wanting nothing in return, except that you allow me to keep you here in my heart, that I may always know your strength, your eyes, and your spirit that gave me freedom and let me fly.”
Coco J. Ginger

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“I don't suppose you have many friends. Neither do I. I don't trust people who say they have a lot of friends. It's a sure sign that they don't really know anyone.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Angel's Game

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
“No man can be called friendless who has God and the companionship of good books.”

Ray Bradbury
“We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Nicole Richie
“True friends are like diamonds – bright, beautiful, valuable, and always in style.”
Nicole Richie

C.S. Lewis
“When the two people who thus discover that they are on the same secret road are of different sexes, the friendship which arises between them will very easily pass – may pass in the first half hour – into erotic love. Indeed, unless they are physically repulsive to each other or unless one or both already loves elsewhere, it is almost certain to do so sooner or later. And conversely, erotic love may lead to Friendship between the lovers. But this, so far from obliterating the distinction between the two loves, puts it in a clearer light. If one who was first, in the deep and full sense, your Friend, is then gradually or suddenly revealed as also your lover you will certainly not want to share the Beloved’s erotic love with any third. But you will have no jealousy at all about sharing the Friendship. Nothing so enriches an erotic love as the discovery that the Beloved can deeply, truly and spontaneously enter into Friendship with the Friends you already had; to feel that not only are we two united by erotic love but we three or four or five are all travelers on the same quest, have all a common vision.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Stephen Chbosky
“If you care about somebody, you should want them to be happy. Even if you wind up being left out.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Stephen Schwartz
“I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led to those who help us most to grow
If we let them and we help them in return.”
Stephen Schwartz

“My old grandmother always used to say, Summer friends will melt away like summer snows, but winter friends are friends forever.”

Jodi Picoult
“A real friend isn't capable of feeling sorry for you.”
Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper

John Green
“Being in a relationship, that's something you choose. Being friends, that's just something you are. [But] I do pick you. We've been friends too long to pick, but if we could pick, I'd pick you.”
John Green, Will Grayson, Will Grayson

Nina LaCour
“I don't want to hurt you or anybody so please forget about me. Just try. Find yourself a better friend.”
Nina LaCour, Hold Still

Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

There is no happiness like that of being loved by your fellow creatures, and feeling
