Friendship by Jane Martin | Watercolor Original


Friends are hard to find.

In a lifetime you get only a few.

And when you find them,

You always know them by sight and heart alone,

You always grow a little bit taller in your soul,

And you know you have been blessed just to know them.

Ashley Rice

and one of the best things you can be.”

“The friend is the man who knows all about you,

and still likes you.”

“Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.”


“Friends are those rare people who ask how you are

and then wait for the answer.”


“It is one of the blessings of old friends

that you can afford to be stupid with them.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy,

they are the charming gardeners

who make our souls blossom.”

Marcel Proust
