Only Friends quotes by Lev Grossman
#1. Emily Greenstreet was one of these girls that nobody ever notices, who are only friends with other girls nobody notices. Nobody likes or dislikes them. They have weak chins, or chicken-pox scars, or their glasses are too big. I know I'm being mean. But you know, they're just sort of at the edge of everything. #Quote by Lev Grossman
Only Friends quotes by Maria Dahvana Headley
#2. I read stuff. Books are not my only friends, but we're friendly. So there. #Quote by Maria Dahvana Headley
Only Friends quotes by Ellen Bass
#3. Dead Butterfly
By Ellen Bass
For months my daughter carried
a dead monarch in a quart mason jar.
To and from school in her backpack,
to her only friend's house. At the dinner table
it sat like a guest alongside the pot roast.
She took it to bed, propped by her pillow.
Was it the year her brother was born?
Was this her own too-fragile baby
that had lived - so briefly - in its glassed world?
Or the year she refused to go to her father's house?
Was this the holding-her-breath girl she became there?
This plump child in her rolled-down socks
I sometimes wanted to haul back inside me
and carry safe again. What was her fierce
commitment? I never understood.
We just lived with the dead winged thing
as part of her, as part of us,
weightless in its heavy jar. #Quote by Ellen Bass
Only Friends quotes by Dame Edna Everage
#4. My mother used to say that there are no strangers, only friends you haven't met yet. She's now in a maximum security twilight home in Australia. #Quote by Dame Edna Everage
Only Friends quotes by Mbella Sonne Dipoko
#5. I knew love was a burden to her. But it was an agreeable burden. She was very delicate. Sometimes I wondered whether she realized to what extent love was an adventure. To her it seemed to be a refuge against the bitterness of the world; to me it wasn't a destination but a stop exposed to winds, to thunders, a stop exposed to storms, a stop among other stops between the first day and the last day in the life of every man and woman. I wished Therese could realize that we were only friends. #Quote by Mbella Sonne Dipoko
Only Friends quotes by Elizabeth George Speare
#6. Tis a strange thing, that the only friends I have I found in the same way, lying flat in the meadows, crying as if their hearts would break. #Quote by Elizabeth George Speare
Only Friends quotes by William Butler Yeats

Only Friends quotes by J.K. Rowling
#8. RON: Only- friends. Funny word- friends. Not that funny. Just a word, really. Friends. Friend. Funny friend. You, my funny friend, my Hermoine. Not that- not my Hermoine, you understand- not MY Hermoine- not MINE- you know, but... #Quote by J.K. Rowling

Only Friends quotes by Dilgo Khyentse

Only Friends quotes by Chetan Bhagat
#18. Why would any guy want to be only friends with a girl? It's like agreeing to be near a chocolate cake and never eat it. It's like sitting in a racing car but not driving it. Only wimps do that. #Quote by Chetan Bhagat
Only Friends quotes by Victor Malarek
#19. From the moment they're recruited to the time they're 'rescued' and deported, trafficked women are terrorized. Every single day they face a world stacked heavily against them. Their only friends are the dedicated women and men who form the thin front line against trafficking--an often thankless job. Those working for nongovernmental aid agencies and organizations are the real heroes in this bleak morass. Still, their work is merely a Band-Aid solution. In the vast majority of cases, NGO workers report that their funding is ad hoc and wholly inadequate to meet even basic needs.

If we truly want a fair shot at saving these women, we need to open not only our minds but also our wallets. We need to focus on programs that care compassionately for the victims and we need to implement them immediately, worldwide. The most urgent priorities are safe shelters and clinics equipped and staffed to offer medical and psychological treatment. We need to understand that most of these women have been psychologically and physically ripped apart. And we need to be prepared for the fac thtat most have been infected with various sexually transmitted diseases. #Quote by Victor Malarek
Only Friends quotes by Marissa Meyer
#20. Just friends, she reminded herself. They were only friends, and would only be friends from here on out. It was a friendship that was to be cherished, as she cherished all the friendships she'd made aboard this ship. She wouldn't ruin it by wishing things could be more. She would be grateful for what affection she did have. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Only Friends quotes by Gloria Steinem
#21. Anybody can be with you when you're right, but only friends are with you when you mess up. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Only Friends quotes by David Mitchell
#22. Her only friends on the estate were books, and books can talk but do not listen. #Quote by David Mitchell
Only Friends quotes by Victoria Abril

Only Friends quotes by Kristin Hannah
#24. So now books were her only friends. She'd read Lord of the Rings so often she could recite whole scenes by memory.
It was not a skill that aided one in becoming popular. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Only Friends quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#25. Some people have a large circle of friends while others have only friends that they like. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Only Friends quotes by Stephen King
#26. The field has never been highly regarded; for a long time the only friends that Poe and Lovecraft had were the French, who have somehow come to an arrangement with both sex and death, an arrangement that Poe and Love-craft's fellow Americans certainly had no patience with. The Americans were busy building railroads, and Poe and Lovecraft died broke. #Quote by Stephen King
Only Friends quotes by Thomas Bernhard
#27. The only friends I have are the dead who have bequeathed their writings to me
I have no others. #Quote by Thomas Bernhard

Only Friends quotes by Graham Greene
#32. Lies had deserted me, and I felt as lonely as though they had been my only friends. #Quote by Graham Greene
Only Friends quotes by Lexie Syrah
#33. She was a young thing, a child really, full of hope and light, who's only friends were the shadows on the walls. Others would have found the darkness that she traversed lacking in shadows, but she exuded an unearthly radiance, lighting the world with every step and bringing life to the shadows that lived only in the twilight between worlds. It was here that her friends came out to play and fed her soul with their love of her joy and the light she bore. For without light, there could be no shadows.

He, a man living in the light, found nothing in the darkness, though his eyes scoured it constantly for a kindred spirit. Always, he searched the void for someone to cling to, some kind of anchor for his soul. For he walked in the light only with help of a mask to hide behind. Under it hid an ethereal animal, primal in its needs and desires, which could not stand the light of day. If only there was one who could give him light without destroying the darkness that filled him so that he could finally be free. #Quote by Lexie Syrah
Only Friends quotes by Phyllis Rose
#34. An autobiography held out the promise of hearing truths that only friends confess to one another but are knowledge you need to live. #Quote by Phyllis Rose
Only Friends quotes by Dave Thomas
#35. There are no strangers in Freemasonry, only friends you've yet to meet. #Quote by Dave Thomas
Only Friends quotes by Arundhati Roy
#36. Enemies can't break your spirit, only friends can. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Only Friends quotes by Ansul Noor
#37. Only when we are thrust into the deepest and most terrible corner of life, do we see our real friends emerge from the shadows , one by one- shining the light of comfort and hope. Those are the ONLY friends that matter. #Quote by Ansul Noor
Only Friends quotes by Tara Michener
#38. I'm at a camp with over 100 girls 11 to 13 years old, around my own age, and I feel like my parents are my only friends. -Mackenzie #Quote by Tara Michener
Only Friends quotes by Kylie Jenner
#39. Tyga's one of my best friends ever, so it's so much fun to travel with him. I always like having my friends out on the road with me. #Quote by Kylie Jenner
Only Friends quotes by Marah Ellis Ryan
#40. Few questions make long friends in the hills. #Quote by Marah Ellis Ryan
Only Friends quotes by Scott Anderson
#41. What if I were to have you hanged?" In a clever retort, alluding to both his considerable girth and to his network of influential friends abroad, the agronomist replied, "Your Excellency, the weight of my body would break the gallows with a noise loud enough to be heard in America." Djemal apparently liked that answer. Before the ending of their meeting, he had appointed Aaronsohn inspector in chief of a new locust eradication program, #Quote by Scott Anderson
Only Friends quotes by Germaine Gibson
#42. Well this wasn't Vegas, and this wasn't Disneyland, this was 'Erotica- The Theme Park – featuring Femdom World, Slave World, Bondage World, Spanking World – and so much more!' -according to the brochure Jillian and Rebecca handed me with great fanfare the next day.

-This is a beautiful brochure, I said – very-
-Glossy , said Rebecca.
-Right, I studied it some more – so is this…I mean – legal? I mean, is it for real?
-O yes, they said.
-Well. Wow, I guess.
-Wow is right, they said.

Jillian had been on some trip with one of her many very rich and very ugly men friends, and they had shown her the place. (no she didn't say to what extent she was 'shown' the place. She was very tight lipped about it, -wanted everything to be a surprise, she said)

To be aware of Erotica-The Theme Park, and its Hotel Ecstasy you need money, connections, and more. In fact you need at least a 100 ft yacht to dock at its private Marina.
And no I can't tell you where it is, otherwise they will revoke my membership pass and kill my first born. But let's say - it's on an island, with warm water ,pure white sand beaches, it's for the very rich, and it's not far , by private helicopter from certain well known islands in let's say, the Caribbean. #Quote by Germaine Gibson
Only Friends quotes by Seth Godin
#43. Permission marketing turns strangers into friends and friends into loyal customers. It's not just about entertainment - it's about education. Permission marketing is curriculum marketing. #Quote by Seth Godin
Only Friends quotes by Plutarch
#44. Agesilaus was very fond of his children; and it is reported that once toying with them he got astride upon a reed as upon a horse, and rode about the room; and being seen by one of his friends, he desired him not to speak of it till he had children of his own. #Quote by Plutarch
Only Friends quotes by Michelle Moran
#45. We can help pave the roads of those around us, but we can't choose their direction. #Quote by Michelle Moran
Only Friends quotes by Anthony Ryan
#46. Tell me, do you really believe all this tripe you spout?" There was no venom in Nortah's tone, just vague curiosity. "We call each other brothers but we share no blood. We're just boys forced together by this Order. Don't you ever wonder what it would have been like if we had met on the outside? Would we have been friends then, or enemies? Our fathers were enemies, did you know that? #Quote by Anthony Ryan
Only Friends quotes by Lynda Resnick
#47. Epilepsy is a disease in the shadows. Patients are often reluctant to admit their condition - even to close family, friends or co-workers - because there's still a great deal of stigma and mystery surrounding the disease that plagued such historical figures as Julius Caesar, Edgar Allan Poe and Lewis Carroll. #Quote by Lynda Resnick
Only Friends quotes by Anna Sewell
#48. Willie always speaks to me when he can, and treats me as his special friend. My ladies have promised that I shall never be sold, and so I have nothing to fear; and here my story ends. My troubles are all over, and I am at home; and often before I am quite awake, I fancy I am still in the orchard at Birtwick, standing with my old friends under the apple-trees. #Quote by Anna Sewell
Only Friends quotes by Cherry Cheva
#49. Here," I said, the morning after the lazy, stupid Derek incident, as I intercepted Camden on his way to his locker shortly before the first-period bell and dragged him into an empty physics lab. I handed him three problem sets with the words PECKER and BALLS written all over them in multicolored highlighters, plus pictures of stick-figure people having sex in different positions. "This is to force your douche-bag friends to copy over the stuff in their own handwriting before they hand it in. There's no way I'm letting us get caught just because our clients get lazy." I crossed my arms and stared at him, daring him to get mad.
He didn't. He just looked at the papers, surprised, then looked at me. "That's actually a really good idea," he said, sounding impressed.
"I know," I said.
"And these pictures you drew are weirdly hot."
"I don't disagree," I said. "By the way, I'm charging you for the highlighters I bought."
I think he might've said "I love you" as I walked out of the classroom, but the hallway was noisy, so I couldn't be sure. #Quote by Cherry Cheva
Only Friends quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#50. It is normal to have enemies,
common to have acquaintances,
and unusual to have friends. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Only Friends quotes by Addison Fox
#51. Sometimes the people who don't know us very well make better mirrors. Too often, our friends feel they have to stand off to the side so they can protect us from the hurt of seeing our true selves. #Quote by Addison Fox
Only Friends quotes by Nancy Oliver
#52. But it's like no matter how much energy you pour into getting to the station on time, or getting on the right train, there's still no guarantee that anybody's gonna be there for you to pick you up when you get there. #Quote by Nancy Oliver
Only Friends quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#53. True enemies are better than false friends. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Only Friends quotes by David Maister
#54. If your clients aren't actively telling their friends about you, maybe your work isn't as great as you think it is. #Quote by David Maister
Only Friends quotes by A.C. Williams
#55. I'm never going to live this down. I will forever be known as the pastor's kid who got arrested, made friends in jail, and threw up on the singles camping trip. That will look great on a resume. #Quote by A.C. Williams
Only Friends quotes by Lauren Tarshis
#56. Dylan had helped Dex get the bed set up, and of course they made it right, the SEAL way. They'd even smiled at each other, the kind of smiles they used to share back when they'd been best friends. It seemed the tornado had broken down that wall that had risen up between them. And #Quote by Lauren Tarshis
Only Friends quotes by Bill Willingham
#57. Confession time: I doubt I would ever have picked up one of Marjorie's books, had I not met her in person. The reason is they're categorized as Romances, which is where they are shelved in bookstores. Though I have no justification for avoiding it, the romance section is an area in bookstores I seldom wander into. Her novels also have traditional-looking romance book covers, which are occasionally a bit off-putting to us mighty manly men.

Then again, who knows? I don't carry many biases where good storytelling is concerned. I'm willing to find it anywhere, as too many of my friends will attest, when I try to drag them to wonderful movies that they aren't eager to go to, simply because they fall under the chick-flick rubric. So, in any case, I'm glad I did meet Marjorie Liu in person, because it would have been a shame to miss out on the work of an author this talented due to whatever degree of cultural prejudices I might still possess. I trust you who read this won't make the same mistake. #Quote by Bill Willingham
Only Friends quotes by Helen Jenkins
#58. Triathlon is a very friendly sport. You can make friends quite easily. You don't have to be the most talented person. I was never outstanding at any one of the disciplines, but if you're dedicated and you're willing to put the time in, you can really achieve some good results. #Quote by Helen Jenkins
Only Friends quotes by Noah Levine
#59. Forgiveness is not just a selfish pursuit of personal satisfaction or righteousness. It actually alleviates the amount of suffering in the world. As each one of us frees ourselves from clinging to resentments that cause suffering, we relieve our friends, family, and community of the burden of our unhappiness. This is not a philosophical proposal; it is a verifiable and practical truth. Through our suffering and lack of forgiveness, we tend to do all kinds of unskillful things that hurt others. We close ourselves off from love, for example, out of fear of further pains or betrayals. This alone - a lack of openness to the love shown to us - is a way that we cause harm to our loved ones. The closed heart lets no one in or out. #Quote by Noah Levine
Only Friends quotes by Corrie Ten Boom
#60. I prayed to dispel my fear, until suddenly, and I do not know how the idea came to me, I began to pray for others. I prayed for everyone who came into my thoughts - - people with whom I had traveled, those who had been in prison with me, my school friends of years ago. I do not know how long I continued my prayer, but this I do know - - my fear was gone! Interceding for others had released me! #Quote by Corrie Ten Boom
Only Friends quotes by Michael Punke
#61. Though no law was written, there was a crude rule of law, adherence to a covenant that transcended their selfish interests. It was biblical in its depth, and its importance grew with each step into wilderness. When the need arose, a man extended a helping hand to his friends, to his partners, to strangers. In so doing, each knew that his own survival might one day depend upon the reaching grasp of another. #Quote by Michael Punke
Only Friends quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#62. Maybe consequences are dear friends in stealthy disguise. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Only Friends quotes by Malcolm X
#63. Since I learned the truth in Mecca, my dearest friends have come to include all kinds
some Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, agnostics, and even atheists! I have friends who are called capitalists, Socialists, and Communists! Some of my friends are moderates, conservatives, extremists
some are even Uncle Toms! My friends today are black, brown, red, yellow, and white! #Quote by Malcolm X
Only Friends quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#64. She had grown. Kate's vicious friend, once so elevated, was taller by little more than a head. She drew her brows together, and studied the circles under his eyes. He said lightly, 'My dear girl; it's Almoner's Saturday. With six frails of figs and a sackful of almonds, I am offering you my name.'
Philippa's lips parted. The smith in her chest, changing a wooden mallet for a small charge of gunpowder, pulverized brain, lungs and stomach and left her standing, wan as a blown egg. She said shakily, 'How would that help?'
Round his mouth, the curled lines deepened, and his eyes, very blue, lit suddenly with something like the flame she had seen struck in them at other times, by other things and other people. 'Stout Philippa,' he said. 'Sit down and hear... There is no guarantee for you now except marriage. Do it now, and you go home a respectable matron of fifteen...sixteen--'
'Nearly seventeen,' said Philippa.
'Yes. Well: with no money but a good many friends and enough property to keep a roof over your head and Kuzum's. Then, as you choose, you may divorce me.'
She cleared her throat. 'On what grounds?'
He looked at her directly, his voice level. 'On very obvious grounds. We shall find another Kislar Agha, if you like, to give you a guarantee... You must have no fears that this will be anything but a marriage on paper. But I want it done now. Tomorrow, if the Embassy's chaplain can do it.'
Philippa's gaze was also direct. 'You think there is #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett

#65. If you hang out with chickens, you're going to cluck and if you hang out with eagles, you're going to fly. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Only Friends quotes by Conan O'Brien
#66. John Travolta said he sometimes lets his friends take control of his airplane even though they don't know what they're doing. Then Travolta said he often does the same thing with his career. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Only Friends quotes by Theophilus London
#67. I have a few friends that have inspired me since I was a young kid. When I watch old films or modern movies - particularly 'Gladiator,' 'New Jack City' and 'The Skin I Live In' - I'll also get ideas. #Quote by Theophilus London
Only Friends quotes by Henry Cloud
#68. In order for any of us to become fully functioning members of society, we must learn an interdependent dance with the community in which we live. We need each other. We need our friends. We need teaching and information from sources other than our parents. When we learn to use the community to meet our needs for relationship and truth, we can then be grounded wherever we find ourselves in life. #Quote by Henry Cloud
Only Friends quotes by Lisa M. Cronkhite
#69. I talk to the friends in my head on paper. #Quote by Lisa M. Cronkhite
Only Friends quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#70. The best way to know a city is to eat it. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Only Friends quotes by Kresley Cole
#71. With her back to him, she maneuvered the towel, endeavoring to dress without revealing anything.
"Though I could watch this all night, you should no' bother with it. I've seen every inch of you by now."
She glanced over her shoulder, not knowing if she was pleased or disappointed that he'd slung on his jeans. "How's that?"
"I'm tall enough that when I was behind you, I could see straight over you. And my eyesight's strong enough to easily see through the water."
She wasn't modest, and this hiding her body like a blushing virgin wasn't her front anyway. "In that case . . ." she said, dropping the towel.
He hissed in a breath. As she set about dressing as usual, he grated, "Not a bashful one, then?"
Bashful? She and her friends made Girls Gone Wild look like a quilting circle. "Just being charitable to aging werewolves. #Quote by Kresley Cole
Only Friends quotes by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
#72. Make allowances for your friends' imperfections as readily as you do for your own. #Quote by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Only Friends quotes by Roger Wicker
#73. But my friends, these people in Egypt have stood by us in a tough, tough neighborhood. #Quote by Roger Wicker
Only Friends quotes by Paul Beatty
#74. This whole city's a Freudian slip of the tongue, a concrete hard-on for America's deeds and misdeeds. Slavery? Manifest Destiny? Laverne & Shirley? Standing by idly while Germany tried to kill every Jew in Europe? Why some of my best friends are the Museum of African Art, the Holocaust Museum, the Museum of the American Indian, the National Museum of Women in the Arts. And furthermore, I'll have you know, my sister's daughter is married to an orangutan. #Quote by Paul Beatty
Only Friends quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#75. Yes, St. Claire. I like you. But I can't say it aloud, because he's my friend. And friends don't let other friends make drunken declarations and expect them to act upon them the next day #Quote by Stephanie Perkins
