FriendshipWe don't exist unless there is someone who can see us existing, what we say has no meaning until someone can understand.
When surrounded by friends we have our identity confirmed, their care for us and their knowledge have the power to pull us from our numbness.
True friends don't evaluate us according to worldly criteria, it is the core self they are interested in. Their love for us remains unaffected by our appearance or position in the social hierarchy by our richness , or the fact that we have made little money.
Discerning our underlying need, we must recognize that a handful of true friends could deliver the love and respect that even a fortune may not.
As Epicurus said ,, BEFORE YOU EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING, CONSIDER CAREFULLY WHO YOU EAT OR DRINK WITH RATHER THAN WHAT YOU EAT OR DRINK: FOR FEEDING WITHOUT A FRIEND IS THE LIFE OF A LION OR A WOLF "
True love is not burning flames but the love of a friend...
