thank you for being a friend . no matter where we go or who we become , never forget who helped us get there.
it's joy to know you, wishing the nicest things always for you, not only today, but all the year through because you are really a joy to know.
from majestic mountains and valleys of green to crystal clear waters so blue, this wish is coming to you.
although time and distance separate us, we still remember the purest friendship and blessing
in time of prosperity, friends will be plenty; in time of adversity, not one amongst twenty. 富在深山有遠親,窮在鬧市無人
thy friend has a friend and thy friend’s friend has a friend so be discreet. 你的朋儕有朋儕,朋儕的朋儕又有朋儕,所以要謹慎警惕。
to preserve a friend three things are required: to honour him present, praise him absent, and assist him in his necessities. 維持交情必要三點∶劈面恭敬他,背後歌頌他,必要時幫助他。
a friend is never known till a man has need. 不到磨難時,永遠不克不及了解真正的朋儕。
a friend is not so soon gotten as lost. 交友慢,失友快。
a friend to everybody is a friend to nobody. 廣交友,無深交。
trust not the praise of a friend, nor the contempt of an enemy. 不要信任朋儕的歌頌,也不要敵人的藐視放在心上。
