I do not presume to dictate to you your friendships or your dislikes.
Friendships may be too violent; and they may be too sensitive.

How dare you believe that money and—all the rest of it influences me in my friendships?
Where am I to find my friendships, where even discover my duties?
Is not the world full of friendships that, like cab-fares, are regulated by the mile?
There are friendships that are no friendships, and marriages that are no marriages.
I shan't expect to absorb you, to take you away from other friendships.
After all, what is a man's country but the place of his loves and his friendships?
He was as liberal in his friendships as in his literary criticisms.
