There are two kinds of friends. A good friend is someone in whose presence I would like to be better. But then there is a true friend – in their presence I am better!
The greatest friend is not somebody who loves you, but is somebody who really, really believes in you.
Every person needs one person to love, and every person needs one moment to hold on to. Please God, give me just one friend, give me just one moment. ~ R’ Shlomo Carlebach zt”l
