Friends are people who make you laugh, who support and encourage you. Don’t feel sad if you lose a friendship that doesn’t do that
Friendship means understanding, not agreement. It means forgiveness, not forgetting. It means the memories last, even if contact is lost

When one has lost a friend one’s eyes should be neither dry nor streaming. Tears, yes, there should be, but not lamentation. Seneca
While you may feel sad over the loss, you cannot dwell on it.
Shy women may have always been short on companions; for them the frustration is not losing friends, but pushing past their reserve to make them.

Positive Life Quotes
This is a sad but true quote. Sometimes there is only so much you can do. A friendship is a two street and if it is only one way you have to turn around and let go.
We all need a little help from our friends. If not now, tomorrow. Or the day after. Or the year after. Some people never realize it until it’s too late. They invest in stocks, bonds, or real estate thinking money is going to give them the security and happiness they seek. Sadly, they neglect the most important investment of their lives – time spent finding, making, and nurturing true friendships and true lasting love relationships. Leil Lowndes, How to Be a People Magnet
Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart. Washington Irving
Our friend is hurting, in pain, and traveling along the road of despair and grief. But old friend, never feel that we will not gladly walk with you through these difficult times. Byron Pulsifer, Reflection Of Life
Could we see when and where we are to meet again,
We would be more tender,
When we bid our friends goodbye.
