In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.Albert Schweitzer
1. Love and like yourself
Friendship with oneself is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.
2. Love and accept others as they are
A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.
3. Love and cherish the time you share
At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.
4. Love the talks together
Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.
5. Love how friends bring out the best in us
Friendship is a treasured gift, and every time I talk with you I feel as if I’m getting richer and richer.
6. Love how friends instinctively work together
Make use of your friends by being of use to them.
17. Love how friends keep our secrets
Confidence is the foundation of friendship. If we give it, we will receive it.
Harry E. Humphrey
8. Love how friends will be honest with their advice
In giving advice, seek to help, not please, your friend.
9. Love how our friends know just the right time to step in
Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.
10. Love how our friends rally around us during difficult times
True friendship isn’t about being there when it’s convenient; it’s about being there when it’s not.
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.John 15:12-15
