One example of a funny quote about best friends is "It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them," by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Another example is "A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked," from Bernard Meltzer.
Ralph Waldo Emerson was an American Transcendentalist writer during the 19th century. He was a philosopher who focused on writing poetry and essays. One of his most famous poems is "Good-Bye," and some of his most well-known essays are "Self-Reliance" and "The American Scholar." A central figure in the Transcendentalist movement, he and other affiliated writers believed that every individual has the potential to go beyond the physical world and enter the realm of spiritual experience. They also believed that God was accessible and that looking into the soul and connecting with the inner nature of spirit allowed a person to understand God.
Bernard Meltzer was an American radio show host during the 20th century. He is well-known for hosting an advice show called "What's Your Problem?" from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. He advised people on a wide variety of subjects, such as family issues, parenting struggles and romantic situations.
