FRIENDS DO YOU HAVE THEM?

the topic for today: friends, we all want one or many depending on who we are.. what will you do to keep them? what will you do to earn them? what will you do to be one? here are some thoughts from others on friendship.

Two persons cannot long be friends if they cannot forgive each other's little failings.
Jean DE LA Bruyere

All have their frailties; and whoever looks for a friend with out imperfections, will never find what he seeks. we love ourselves notwithstanding our own faults, and we ought to love our friends in the like manner.
Cyrus

Friendship Improves Happiness, and abates misery, by doubling our joy, and dividing our grief.
Joseph Addison

Your friend is the person who knows all about you, and still likes you.
Elbert Hubbard

we all are so different. do you find it harder to be a friend or easier to be a lover. is there a difference.
one last thought. this came from a man years ago while I was visiting my great-grandmother in a nursing home.

To have friends..... Be friendly

To have love....... Be loving

To enjoy happiness....... divide with others
Alvin. he was 101 years young

(this post is for you my friend, I've tried to live by this axiom)

my personal Fav is by Elbert Hubbard. the reason is because your friends see your frailties!
tell me what you do to maintain or create friendships.

To be a friend or a lover, always love them NO MATTER WHAT, without judgment, fault, condemnation. Unconditionally. Quoted by ME

thank you for this

hugs and smiles

Mostlyit is the "Golden Rule" for me, I try to treat others the way I would like to be treated. I try to understand intent and motivation for why people sometimes dothe things that hurt us, I just try to love unconditionally.

A friend is someone who sees your faults, and loves you in spite of them. It is wonderful to have people in your life who accept you for who you are. And love you on your grumpiest day...and dance with you on your happiest! Thanks for this post. We could all hug our friends a little more often, couldn't we?
