Quotes about Years and Friendship
Years Quotes

Please enjoy these Quotes about Years and Friendship from my collection of Friendship quotes.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
- widely misattributed to Mark Twain

You can make more friends in two months
by becoming interested in other people
than you can in two years by trying
to get other people interested in you.
- Dale Carnegie

Love is not a matter of counting the years,
but making the years count.
- Michele St. Amand

In a bad marriage, friends are the invisible glue.
If we have enough friends, we may go on for years,
intending to leave, talking about leaving -
instead of actually getting up and leaving.
- Erica Jong

 

Anger is a destructive emotion
that becomes instinctive over the years.

but delicious in the years of maturity.
- Albert Einstein

One of the greatest titles we can have is "old friend."
We never appreciate how important old friends are until we are older.
The problem is we need to start our old friendships when we are young.
We then have to nurture and grow those friendships over our middle age
when a busy life and changing geographies
can cause us to neglect those friends.
Today is the day to invest in those people
we hope will call us "old friend" in the years to come.

Old is always fifteen years from now.
- Bill Cosby

if in terms of ten years, plant trees;
if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.

You can close more business in two months
by becoming interested in other people
than you can in two years by trying
to get people interested in you.
- Dale Carnegie

Old age is fifteen years older than I am.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.
To those who say, "But times are different now,"
I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.
What has changed is our attitudes.
In those years, a broken leg from falling off a swing
or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Might I perhaps win my wings?
I've been waiting for over 200 years now, sir,

The years teach much which the days never know.

but one night every thousand years
how man would marvel and stare.

Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I have spent many years of my life in opposition,
and I rather like the role.
- Eleanor Roosevelt

It takes 20 years to make an overnight success.
- Eddie Cantor

Why does a woman work ten years to change a man's habits
and then complain that he's not the man she married?
- Barbra Streisand

And in the end, it's not
the years in your life that count,
it's the life in your years.
- Abraham Lincoln

I haven't spoken to my wife in years.
I didn't want to interrupt her.
- Rodney Dangerfield

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I do not fear death.
I had been dead for billions and billions
of years before I was born,
and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.
- Mark Twain

It takes years to build up trust,
and only seconds to destroy it.
- Anonymous

It was an honor and privilege to arrive to this country
16 years ago with almost no money in my pocket.
A lot has happened since then.
- Antonio Banderas

I pray God may preserve your health and life many years.
- Junipero Serra

If you have been divorced, you know it hurts -
especially if your marriage had lasted many years.
Whatever the circumstances of your relationship,
and whatever the nature of its ending,
there is always grief and regret -
perhaps regret over the ending,
or perhaps regret over not ending the relationship sooner -
or perhaps both.
Nonetheless, move past the grief and regret.
No matter how painful, divorce, like all endings,
opens the door to new beginnings.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

He who would pass his declining years with honor and comfort,
should, when young, consider that he may one day become old,
and remember when he is old, that he has once been young.
- Joseph Addison

Population, when unchecked, goes on doubling itself
every 25 years or increases in a geometrical ratio.
- Thomas Malthus

While one finds company in himself and his pursuits,
he cannot feel old, no matter what his years may be.
- Amos Bronson Alcott

Eighteen holes of match play will teach you more about
your foe than 18 years of dealing with him across a desk.
- Grantland Rice

A kiss makes the heart young again and wipes out the years.
- Rupert Brooke

If Jesus had been killed twenty years ago,
Catholic school children would be wearing little electric
chairs around their necks instead of crosses.
- Lenny Bruce

I have found out in later years that we were very poor,
but the glory of America is that we didn't know it then.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck,
but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.
- Steven Wright

To be seventy years young is sometimes
far more cheerful and hopeful
than to be forty years old.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years.
To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.
- Winston Churchill

To me - old age is always ten years older than I am.
- John Burroughs

Like many women my age, I am 28 years old.
- Mary Schmich

People - not just in their teenage years -
hold on to this fantasy of love when they're not ready
to have a real relationship.
- Keri Russell

When a man you like switches from what
he said a year ago, or four years ago,
he is a broad-minded person who has courage enough
to change his mind with changing conditions.
When a man you don't like does it,
he is a liar who has broken his promise.
- Franklin Pierce Adams

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years.
We grow old by deserting our ideals.
Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
- Samuel Ullman

Ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false.
The hundredth time I am right.

artist should touch color -
not color used descriptively,
that is, but as a means of personal expression.
- Henri Matisse

I will never be an old man.
To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am.
- Francis Bacon

I decided I wanted to be a lawyer when I was 11 years of age.
- Johnnie Cochran

The time not to become a father is eighteen years before a war.
- E. B. White

What we've gone through in the last several years has

When a man goes through six years training to be a
doctor he will never be the same.
He knows too much.

A person is smart. People are dumb,
panicky dangerous animals and you know it.
Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew
the Earth was the center of the universe.
Five hundred years ago,
everybody knew the Earth was flat,
and fifteen minutes ago,
you knew that humans were alone on this planet.
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.
- the movie Men in Black

There is always some specific moment when we become
aware that our youth is gone;

years after, we know it was much later.

our fathers brought forth on this continent,
a new nation, conceived in Liberty,

We are asking the nations of Europe
between whom rivers of blood have flowed
to forget the feuds of a thousand years.

thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers.
The original meal has never been found.
