17 Quotes that will change the way you see friends
1. CHOOSE FRIENDS WHO ARE SINCERE WITH YOU, NOT THOSE WHO ONLY MAKE YOU FEEL IMPORTANT. IF YOUR JACKET BILLOWS IN THE WIND, YOU MAY LOOK BIGGER IN IT BUT IT WON’T KEEP YOU WARM.

2. UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MUST BE A FRIEND TO OTHERS, FIRST. FOR FRIENDSHIP, LIKE A SILVER CUP, GROWS DULL IF YOU LEAVE IT UNCARED FOR, SHINES IF YOU POLISH IT, AND SHINES BRIGHTEST OF ALL IF YOU FOCUS LIGHT ON IT.

3. GIVE YOUR FRIENDS FREEDOM TO BE THEMSELVES. CHOOSE FRIENDS, TOO, WHO WILL GIVE YOU THAT SAME FREEDOM. ISN’T LIFE MORE INTERESTING FOR IT’S DIFFERENCES? THE CANARY CAN’T FLY AS FAST AS THE HUMMING BIRD, BUT IT SINGS BEAUTIFULLY. THE HUMMING BIRD, THOUGH IT FLIES FAST, CANT SING AT ALL.

4. EXPAND YOUR HAPPINESS BY SHARING IT WITH OTHERS. THE LARGER A RAINBOW, THE MORE BRIGHTLY IT SHINES.

5. LISTEN MORE, AND TALK LESS. LET YOUR FRIENDS TELL YOU HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT THINGS. WHO LIKES A DOG THAT DOES NOTHING BUT BARK?

6. DON’T ONLY TALK FRIENDSHIP: BE A FRIEND. SHOW YOUR FRIENDSHIP BY THINGS YOU DO FOR OTHERS. DON’T BE A TALKING PARROT, WHICH CAN BE TAUGHT TO SAY,” I LIKE YOU”, BUT WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND WHAT THOSE WORDS MEAN.

7. LIKE PEOPLE. DON’T MEASURE THEIR WORDS TO SEE HOW WELL THEY LIKE YOU. A FIRE IN THE FIREPLACE IS THERE TO PROVIDE WARMTH, NOT TO BE WARMED. IF YOU WARM OTHERS BY YOUR FRIENDSHIP, THEY WILL ALWAYS CROWD AROUND YOU.

8. WHEN YOU APPRECIATE WHAT YOUR FRIENDS SAY OR DO, SHOW THEM YOUR APPRECIATION. DON’T TAKE IT FOR GRANTED THAT THEY RECOGNIZE IT. DON’T WE ALL FEEL MORE FRIENDLY TOWARDS A DOG WHEN IT WAGS ITS TAIL?

 9. ACCEPT YOUR FRIENDS AS THEY ARE, AND THEY’LL ACCEPT YOU AS YOU ARE. IF YOU THINK FRIENDSHIP SHOULD BE PERFECT, LOOK AT YOURSELF SOMETIME IN THE MIRROR. ARE YOU PERFECT? BY ACCEPTING WHAT IS, WE CAN ALL GROW TOGETHER TOWARD WHAT OUGHT TO BE.

10. DON’T GIVE YOUR BAD MOODS TO OTHERS. THAT’S LIKE GIVING THEM A WORMY APPLE TO EAT.

11. MAKE YOUR FRIENDS NEED AS IMPORTANT AS YOUR OWN. NOBODY LIKES A PERSON WHO ALWAYS SHOVES HIS WAY TO THE FRONT OF A LINE.

12. ENCOURAGE ENTHUSIASM IN YOUR FRIENDS. TO DIS COURAGE THEM HABITUALLY IS LIKE KILLING THEM ONE LITTLE PINPRICK AT A TIME. BUT TO ENCOURAGE THEM IN THEIR GOOD IDEAS IS LIKE GIVING THEM DOSES OF HEALING ENERGY.

13. LET OTHERS HAVE THEIR SAY, EVEN IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THEM. ONCE YOU’VE HEARD THEM OUT, THEN TELL THEM, KINDLY BUT TRUTHFULLY, WHAT YOU THINK.

14. DON’T MIX WITH PEOPLE FOR WHAT YOU HOPE TO GET OUT OF THEM. MIX WITH THEM FOR THEMSELVES. LIKE THEM FOR THEMSELVES. NOBODY WANTS TO HANG AROUND WITH PINK POCKETS.

15. EXPRESS YOUR FEELINGS THROUGH YOUR EYES. DON’T BE SO WRAPPED UP IN YOURSELF THAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SHAKE YOU, LIKE A CHRISTMAS PRESENT, TO GUESS WHAT’S INSIDE.

16. EXPRESS YOUR FRIENDSHIP THROUGH THE TONE OF YOUR VOICE. A WARM VOICE SAYS,’ I LIKE YOU”.

17. DON’T ONLY PLAY WITH YOUR FRIENDS. BE SERIOUS WITH THEM, TOO. DISCUSS WITH THEM WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THINGS, AND ABOUT LIFE. TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU HOPE TO DO WITH YOUR LIVES. DO’T LET YOUR PLAY BECOME LIKE THE WIND-SCATTERED LEAVES, TORN AWAY FROM THE TREE THAT KEPT THEM GREEN.

    Excellent blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any tips? Thank you!
