O my poor old Harry Jekyll, if ever I read Satan's signature upon a face, it is on that of your new friend.
No man is useless while he has a friend.
So long as we love, we serve; so long as we are loved by others, I should say that we are almost indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.
Of what shall a man be proud, if he is not proud of his friends?
To be honest, to be kind To earn a little and to spend a little less, to make upon the whole a family happier for his presence, to renounce when that shall be necessary and not be embittered, to keep a few friends, but these without capitulation above all, on the same grim condition, to keep friends with himself here is a task for all that a man has of fortitude and delicacy.
Give us grace and strength to forbear and to persevere. Give us courage and gaiety and the quiet mind, spare to us our friends, soften to us our enemies.
If we take matrimony at it's lowest, we regard it as a sort of friendship recognised by the police.

To greet their unforgotten friend!

A friend is a gift you give yourself.
Even if we take matrimony at its lowest, even if we regard it as no more than a sort of friendship recognized by the police.
