    A friend is someone who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself

    We all need that one person in our lives who we can tell everything to and trust with our lives. Otherwise life becomes so lonely and painful.

    We all want someone to be with us to confide in and be able to tell everything at any time. This we can find in a good friend who will always be with us and help us to solve our problems and never hurt us. Some friends we grow up with and some we meet later in life.

    To our close friend we can share all our worries. This will enable us to keep the friendship going which will last till the end. It is easy to believe someone when they tell you exactly what you want to hear. We may hide our pains but we cant lie to the people who really care for us the most. They know us well and can understand our pains.

    Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. = Unknown

    A true friend gives a love that is true, a love without conditions, and a love that never falters. A true friend can do this because they know that because they are a true friend to you, you will be a true friend to them! Many times this is a notion that is left unsaid, but it is a notion that is understood in all great friendships.- unknown

    Love conquers all.

    When we are angry in any sitution instead of acting like an angry person if we show our love we are choosing to be a great person and we can also show others even in tough times we are able to smile

    Friends know what you want them to know about you
    Best friends know what you dont even know about yourself
    And true friends help you to build yourself from all they know
    Let go of those who bring you down and surround yourself
    with those who bring out the best in you.

    There is Shakespearian quote as under:
    Old friends are like alphabets and new friends are like poems. Never forget the old friends because if you do that you will forget the alphabets and will not be in a position to read the poems.

    Have a nice day.

    Dear viji,
    Belated birthday wishes and blessings to you for a long life with robust health. As for the above Shakespearean quote mentioned by Harilakera you are like alphabets and will never forget your old friends even if they forget you. I am quite sure of it.

    :hello:Super theme narration befitting the age and title.

    2. This transported my mind to my student days at school.

    3. Friend in need is a friend indeed. This quote written in green paint in yellow background at the top of the threshold to my school class room. It is verbatim true.

    4. A couple met with a mishap while riding. A bystander lend helping hand. Took them to nearby hospital. Thus began an acquaintance. But over the years, it turned into a deep profound friendship blossomed from stages to dudes, pals bedfellows pranaptha-snekithars.

    • One thinks of the other in deep contemplation. The other gets the wave and in few minutes or hours they meet. It is beta wave. You think of her or him. The person appear before you. Such is the strength of amiship.

    5. I have had around six like them. Two are in heavens.

    6. Yesterday Sat, 28th August, I was thinking of one of the remaining four - who with family in senior citizen home in another city. A few minutes gone by. My mobile tinkled with monitor glowing showing the name of my bosom friend “Sharda Krishnamurthy “. Yes she and him called & wished me “many many happy returns of the day”.

    7. From school days to now, one friendship is still going strong. He could not bear me leaving city to another city when I got better job with higher prospects for career upliftment. A month later, he risking his probation in government job, arrived in the other city to meet me. Such is the power behind friendship.

    Thanks and Regards.
