Friends and Friendship

To be there for your friend in his/her time of need; that is what being a friend means. And that is why we need friends, true friends who will stand by us in our hour of need.

Don’t pass on the opportunity to make friends. We all need friends. Surround yourself with friends from different backgrounds and different age groups! In this way, there is always at least one who will understand, inspire, and give your spirits a lift in your time of need. A friend that motivates you is a blessing.

Sometimes a friend is never known until needed. Sometimes, the stranger who comes to our aid becomes a lifelong friend.

It is good to reflect that a stranger may not always be a stranger. Strangers can become best friends just as easily as best friends can become ‘someone whom we used to know.’

Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together. - Woodrow Wilson

Friendship is a serious affection; the most sublime of all affections, because it is founded on principle, and cemented by time. - Mary Wollstonecraft

Nothing so fortifies a friendship as a belief on the part of one friend that he is superior to the other. - Honoré de Balzac

This is sad, but true. But I guess if both parties feel the same, and are content with the thought, and a friendship is built on that, then there is no harm.
