FRIENDSHIP



When I used to watch television's favorite sitcom, Friends, I couldn't help wishing that I too had such great friends. Beneath all the madcap humour is an underlying message about friendship. Now that I have such real good friends, so what if they are just e-friends, I consider myself lucky. I would like to tell all the users of social networking sites, or other online chat-rooms: If you are friendless, maybe you have not tried hard enough. The cyberspace is such a great leveller, a real cool platform to share our thoughts with friends from all over the world!

May there always be work for your hands to do, may your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine on your windowpane, may a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you, may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you. [- An Irish saying]


Here is a selection of choicest Friendship Quotes:

Jacques Delille

"Chance makes our parents, but choice makes our friends."


Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

"It is wise to apply the oil of refined politeness to the mechanism of friendship."


William James

"We want all our friends to tell us our bad qualities; it is only the particular ass that does so whom we can't tolerate."


George Ade

"A friend who is near and dear may in time become as useless as a relative."


Francis Bacon

"There is as much difference between the counsel that a friend giveth, and that a man giveth himself, as there is between the counsel of a friend and of a flatterer. For there is no such flatterer as is a man's self."


Honore de Balzac

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


Richard Barnfield

"He that is thy friend indeed,He will help thee in thy need:If thou sorrow, he will weep;If you wake, he cannot sleep;Thus of every grief in heartHe with thee doth bear a part."


Joan Crawford

"If you have an ounce of common sense and one good friend you don't need an analyst."


Norman Douglas

"To find a friend one must close one eye -- to keep him, two."
