Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.
Eccl 4:9-12 NLT
A friend is someone who can see the truth and pain in you even when you are fooling everyone else.
Never explain yourself. Your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe it.
Friendship isn’t about whom you have known the longest… It’s about who came, and never left your side…
The words that escape a friend’s mouth are “I’ll be there when you say you need me” but the words that are unheard from a true friend’s heart are
“I’ll be there… whether you say you need me or not.”
If there are people in your life that continually disappoint you, break promises, stomp on your dreams, too judgmental, have different values and don’t have your back during difficult times…they are not friends.
To have a friend, you have to be a friend.
Sometimes in life as you grow, your friends will either grow or go.
Surround yourself with people who have high values, goals, interests and a clean lifestyle.
Don’t spend major time with minor people.
When I think of any of my successes, I am thankful to GOD from whom all blessings flow, and to my family and friends that enrich my life.
Over the years my phone book has changed because I changed for the better.
At first you think you’re going to be alone, but after a while new people show up in your life that make your life so much sweeter and easier to endure.
Remember what your elders used to say,
“Birds of the same feather always stay together.”
If you’re an eagle,
don’t hang around with the chickens
because chickens can’t fly.
