“Far and near friends knew this house; for he whose home it was had much acquaintance in the world”
“A man should choose a friend who is better than himself. There are plenty of acquaintances in the world; but very few real friends.”
“A slender acquaintance with the world must convince every man that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends”
“Depth of friendship does not depend on length of acquaintance.”
“Cultivate solitude and quiet and a few sincere friends, rather than mob merriment, noise and thousands of nodding acquaintances”
“She is such a good friend that she would throw all her acquaintances into the water for the pleasure of fishing them out again”
Charles M. de Talleyrand
“What is meant by a "knowledge of the world" is simply, an acquaintance with the infirmities of men”
