Friendship..... a doubtful thought


A lot of people told me that once a friendship is formed it will be forever. How true is this statement?

A good friend of mine told me that i should not have any expectation from a friend. The best way is just to be a friend without any expectation. I don't get it at all. In fact, what a friend is for without any expectation? Do you agree?

How do you define friendship? Any definition of the following?

"One who multiplies joys, divides grief and whose honesty is inviolable."

"One who understands our silence."

"A volume of sympathy bound in cloth."

"A watch that beats true for all time and never runs down."

"A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out."

"If you live to be a hundred,
I want to live to be a hundred
minus one day, so I never have to
live without you."

- Winnie the Pooh


"True friendship is like sound
health; the value of it is seldom
known until it be lost."

- Charles Caleb Colton


"A real friend is one who
walks in when the rest of the
world walks out."



"Don't walk in front of me, I
may not follow. Don't walk
behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me and be my friend."

- Albert Camus.

"Strangers are just friends
waiting to happen."


"Friends are the Bacon Bits in
the Salad Bowl of Life."


"Friendship is one mind in two
bodies."

- Mencius

"Friends are God's way of
taking care of us."

"If you should die before me,
ask if you could bring a
friend."

- Stone Temple Pilots


"I'll lean on you and you lean
on me and we'll be okay."

- Dave Matthews Band


"If all my friends were to
jump off a bridge, I wouldn't
jump with them, I'd be at the bottom to
catch them"


"Everyone hears what you say.
Friends listen to what you say.
Best friends listen to what you
don't say."


"We all take different paths
in life, but no matter where we
go, we take a little of each other
everywhere"

- Tim McGraw


"My father always used to say
that when you die, if
you've got five real friends,
then you've had a great life."

-Lee Iacocca


"Hold a true friend with both
your hands."

-Nigerian Proverb

"A friend is someone who knows
the song in your heart and can
sing it back to you when you have
forgotten the words."

-unknown

"All the times we have shared, could never be broken...
by a girl, by life, and when i say your my true friend(s),
I mean it with all my heart, and never forget that I am here for you, I will walk
through life holding your hand or stand by while you need me to just talk, but
either way, I will be here, and never leave you...you need not fear"

~ Bruce Allen Wall, Jr.
