WHO is a friend?There are so many things that we expect a friend to be - loyal, devoted, trustworthy, dependable, to be there in times of trouble, in times of ease, in times of sorrow, in times of joy... Is this what real friends are meant to be? Through the passage of life, we meet many people. Most, sadly, come into our lives and leave as quickly. Alas, there are but few, who enter, leave a footprint in our hearts and remain forever. Through history, philosophers and poets have defined friends in so many ways.
A friend is someone who is there when others walk out.
A friend is one who knows all about you, and still likes you.
A friend is one who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself.
A friend is one who knows more about you than yourself and still loves you.
A friend's hand is always there ...you just have to reach out for it.
