What Is a Friend?

What is a friend? One with whome you can be yourself. With a friend, there is no need to act, no need to display your very best side, no need to even guard your words. You need only be as you are.

And if you act foolishly or speak stupidly, the friend understands, forgives; for that friend, too, has been foolish and stupid, at times.

Laugh, then, with your friend; cry if you must; but above all, love your friend. After all, your friend must love you to be able to tolerate your faults and feelings.
