Richelle E. Goodrich
“Service is a smile.  It is an acknowledging wave, a reaching handshake, a friendly wink, and a warm hug.   It's these simple acts that matter most, because the greatest service to a human soul has always been the kindness of recognition.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway

Tony Horwitz
“The first thing you notice, coming to Israel from the Arab world, is that you have left the most courteous region of the globe and entered the rudest. The difference is so profound that you're left wondering when the mutation in Semitic blood occurred, as though God parted the Red Sea and said: "Okay, you rude ones, keep wandering toward the Promised Land. The rest of you can stay here and rot in the desert, saying 'welcome, most welcome' and drowning each other in tea until the end of time.”
Tony Horwitz, Baghdad without a Map and Other Misadventures in Arabia

“Each time a person passes by you and you say 'hello', imagine that person turning into a candle. The more positivity, love and light you reflect, the more light is mirrored your way. Sharing beautiful hellos is the quickest way to earn spiritual brownie points. You should start seeing hellos as small declarations of faith. Every time you say hello to a stranger, your heart acknowledges over and over again that we are all family.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Stephen Richards
“When we make friends then we change from being animals to being human.”

Dan Pearce
“When you do talk to people, share what you are. Stop focusing on all the things that you aren’t. Stop focusing on all of the physical features that you think people won’t like about you. Stop focusing on your inabilities or lack of talent. Instead, focus on those physical features that you know people already love about you. Focus on your abilities and the talents that you do have. You have been blessed with all of the above, and that makes you worth getting to know in my book.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

Dan Pearce
“Smile at people everywhere you go. Don’t just give them one of those half-smirk/head nod things. Raise your eyebrows, show those teeth, and chuckle while you smile. Next time you’re at the store, give a full-hearted smile to at least three complete strangers. You’ll be amazed at what this does for them and for you.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

Pat Conroy
“I was the only person in the world who thought it was a military duty to appear to be in a good mood.”
Pat Conroy, The Lords of Discipline

G.K. Chesterton
“All true friendliness begins with fire and food and drink and the recognition of rain or frost. ...Each human soul has in a sense to enact for itself the gigantic humility of the Incarnation. Every man must descend into the flesh to meet mankind.”
G.K. Chesterton, What's Wrong with the World

Frank Delaney
“The difference between a friend and an enemy is friendliness.”
Frank Delaney, The Matchmaker of Kenmare

Gerald Morris
“Once she exclaimed, "But I always thought that sorceresses were evil!"
"What do you mean 'evil'?"
Lynet has never considered the question. "You know," she said, after a moment, "unfriendly to people."
"People!" repeated Morgana derisively. "As if humans were all that mattered. Just once I'd like to see people judged by how friendly they are to sorceresses.”
Gerald Morris, The Savage Damsel and the Dwarf

Richelle E. Goodrich
“If you often feel alone, ignored, or forgotten, think about this: closing the door and locking yourself in won't change anything—literally and figuratively.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Slaying Dragons

Criss Jami
“No matter how kind you are, always expect a few imbeciles.”
Criss Jami, Healology

“Peace of Man"

Greet each man with words of love
And peace,
And a dove will be placed
On an olive tree.
Leave a man with feelings
Of betrayal
Or envy,
And a dove gets shot
Off the olive tree.
Greet each man with peace,
And leave each man with love.
Ask yourself -
One more enemy,
Or one more dove?
Always choose love.
It's time for everybody to
Speak love.
Let's fill the trees with doves,
And spread the leaves of love.
Always add
And never subtract
Another peace of man
From the olive tree.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Aman Jassal
“When life deals you a rough hand, it’s not about how strong you are but how many people out there believe in you, stand by you: your FRIENDS.”
Aman Jassal, Rainbow - the shades of love

Criss Jami
“Speaking a painful truth should be done only in love - like wielding a sword with no hilt - it should pain oneself in direct proportion to the amount of force exerted.”
Criss Jami, Healology

“If you need true friend 'a cup of tea can be' it gives you company, listen without complain and makes you fresh anytime,anywhere”
Rahul Bodkhe

“One of the greatest gifts in this world is the ability to make others smile. - The Unauthorized Autobiography of Jonathan Fisher”
J.E.B. Spredemann

Noah Levine
“Everything is unfolding based on causes and conditions. Our happiness or suffering is dependent on how we relate to the present moment. If we cling now, we suffer later. If we let go and respond with compassion or friendliness, we create happiness and well-being for the future.”
Noah Levine, Against the Stream: A Buddhist Manual for Spiritual Revolutionaries

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Ogni alba è un invito a sorgere ed illuminare la giornata di qualcuno.”
Richelle E. Goodrich

David McCullough
“The author perceptively outlines what might be an underrated aspect of his subject and of many others whose public achievements are of note – a "gift for friendship". McCullough says Adams, despite his towering intellect and curmudgeonly demeanor, had a soft heart for other people and a genuine interest in their particulars.”
David McCullough, John Adams

“The measure of wisdom is in simplicity, humility, and in friendliness.”
Debasish Mridha M.D.

Fernando Pessoa
“In this world we're all travelers on the same ship that has set sail from one unknown port en route to another equally foreign to us; we should treat each other therefore with the friendliness due to fellow travelers.”
Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

C.S. Lewis
“The pretence leads up to the real thing. When you are not feeling particularly friendly but know you ought to be, the best thing you can do, very often, is put on a friendly manner and behave as if you were a nicer person than you actually are. And in a few minutes, as we have all noticed, you will be really feeling friendlier than you were. Very often the only way to get a quality in reality is to start behaving as if you had it already.”
C.S. Lewis

Peter Wessel Zapffe
“Dokker træng en hest," sa de.
"Ja vil dokker bryte dokker så grynsmå," sa han, "så har æ no mærra her. Ka dokker betale? Vil dokker op og slå dokker tell individ, så skal æ kjøre dokker både op og ner. Hos mæg skal dokker ikje omkomme, dokker skal ikje førlise et hår. Ka dokker betale? Her e ingen så lægg to pinna i kors førr dokker, neida, bare hjølpsomme folk overalt.”
Peter Wessel Zapffe, Barske glæder og andre temaer fra et liv under åpen himmel

Hyeonseo Lee
“He showed me that there was another world where strangers helped strangers for no other reason than that it is good to do so, and where callousness was unusual, not the norm.”
Hyeonseo Lee

“Learn to be friendly and learn to welcome all people, but note however in doing so that it is not every hand that is stretched towards you that deserves your handshake!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Catherine Lacey
“I found, increasingly, that I did not particularly care and I tried to fake a little kindness, a little sweetness, tried to mirror Luna back at herself, but that exhausted me after a week and I concluded that I was not meant for this sort of thing, friends, friendliness, no, I wasn't meant for it.”
Catherine Lacey, Nobody Is Ever Missing
