    • What is a friend? 1 soul in 2 bodies.
    • There are no strangers, only friends you haven't met yet.
    • If you tell someone you like people, they can't resist liking you back.
    • He/She who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare, who has one enemy will meet him everywhere.
    • Nothing changes your opinion of a friend so surely as success - yours or his.
    • True friendship is a plant of slow growth.
    • A good friend can tell you what is the matter with you in a minute.
    • Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods.
    • A friend who turns into a enemy has never been a friend.
    • A faithful friend is the medicine of life.

    Dear Reenae,

    It was a nice post. We can like many people Reenae but do not expect all of them to be friendly with you. I had believe like that but was disappointed.

    Friends should have same wavelength so that they can understand each other. Only then the friendship will get strengthened.

    Friends are the best one can have. You can choose friends. Don't think I am advising you. I am not . this has been my experiance.

    Love
    Latha :wave

    Hi Latha,

    I fully agree with you. It was just a "nice" thought else I too know from experience that our feelings of friendship are no always returned.

    Thanks for responding to my post.

    Take Care

    Reena,

    So well said and written.

    Someone rightly said, that i fu have even one person who is a real friend, then u have achieved everything in life.

    And i do have quite a few good friends, with whom i can sit and talk my heart out.:-o

    HAHA.Thanks and regards.kamal

    Hi,

    Nice one... A friend in need is a friend indeed... I have seen both types of friends... Friends who have helped me a lot and friends who have ditched me... A true friendhip emerges, when there is no expectations... When we start expecting, then the disappointment comes in... Dont expect, accept things as they are... Dont probe... Accept at the face value... Then friendship suvives...

    Even those who cheat on you, also will feel bad, once he understands that you really believe in him and accept him as he/she is...

    These are absolutely my personal opinion and experience....

    Nice post on friendship. I am reminded of the Tamil sayings 'Moozhkatha shipe frienship' (The ship that never sinks is friendship). 'Uyir kaapan thozhan' (friend is one who will give his life for you). For me, friends are more than my relatives and I wish my relatives are more friendly towards me. Of course, friends may part and go to far off place and may never come across again. But, blood relatives come with us since birth and they are there for good or bad till the end. About father and son relationship there is a Tamil saying 'Thozhuku minjinal thozhan' (If your son has grown up then he becomes your friend).

    Long live friendship!

    Regards,

    TDU

    The happiest business in the world
    Is that of making friends
    and no investment on the street
    Pays larger dividends
    For life is more than stocks and bonds
    And love that rates percent
    And he who gives in friendship name
    Shall reap as he has spent

    True friends visit us in prosperity only when invited
    but in adversity they come without invitation
