It's no good trying to keep up old friendships. It's painful for both sides. The fact is, one grows out of people, and the only thing is to face it.
La Rochefoucauld
Don't make friends who are comfortable to be with. Make friends who will force you to lever yourself up.
Thomas J. Watson
If you are ruled by mind you are a king; if by body, a slave.
Cato, Roman statesman and historian
