One Pimple is One Too Many - Friendship

The better part of one's life consists of his friendships. - Abraham Lincoln

President Lincoln had it right. Friendship is an important (and some consider the best) part of one's life... the question is then: what is friendship?

Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weight thoughts nor measure words. - George Elliot

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... it has no survival value, rather it is one of those things that give value to survival. - C.S. Lewis

What qualities do you look for in a friend?

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. - Oprah Winfrey
The "friends" who are always around when you get some extra cash or have cool clothes aren't really your friends - they only want what they can get from you. Instead, look for the people who genuinely care about you and have your best interests at heart.

A blessed thing it is for any man or woman to have a friend, one human soul whom we can trust utterly, who knows us the best and worst of us, and who loves us in spite of our faults. - Charles Kingsley
Best friends. An instant connection where the two of you immediately clicked and you've been inseperable ever since. Or maybe you have a friend that you don't hang out with a lot but you know if you ever called with an emergency they'd be right there (and vice versa). Friends that become like family... the people you love, trust and depend on no matter what. These are the kind of friendships to look for.

One last note:

The only way to have a friend is to be one. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
See someone sitting all by themselves at the lunch table? All by yourself in a class with no one you know? Get out there and make some new friends! Smile to people. Introduce yourself and shake their hand. You may not become BFF's eternally but at least you'll have a smiling face to sit next to!

Me ke aloha pau ole a hui ho.
(Hawaiian for
""With everlasting love and affection until we meet again.")

Some of my favorites :)

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

"A friend is one who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself."

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