Well I am going to take the liberty to bring, to add, something!
True friendship is like a bond. It invariably requires loyalty and self-forgetting devotion and actually proceeds upon a much higher level principle. For loyalty tends to be blind, but friendship must not be; it must not sacrifice principle of right choice, The object of friendship should be to honestly serve and not to gain victory at any cost. The object of Friendship is not only to love but also to guard and guide, guide to ways of wisdom.
You may perhaps have tried to be friends and have failed, failures may also be in other directions and matters, but let me tell you - "success in this world is rarely achieved but that should not deter you, for isn't the purpose of life - to chase success"? Put in other words, you should be physically and mentally prepared to do your level best to keep friendship alive by honest means.
We have digressed, so it appears, from Friendship to Life, and my considered advice is - "Let your life lightly dance on the edge of time, like dew on the tip of a leaf". Nay, I will go a step further and take you to the realm of the future and yet what always is "the present", and I trust you will agree; Every tomorrow has two handles, one can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith. What is your choice will decide how far you succeed in life.
Let us look a bit further. We no doubt should live with a bright prospect of the future in mind but that does not mean that we adopt unfair means today for that ideal.
"HAPPINESS IS A HABIT CULTIVATE IT.
Perhaps you may be thinking that this all is too much for the grey matter in your cerebral region or too boring. But a little introspection will tell that - There is nothing so elastic as the human mind. Like imprisoned steam, the more it is pressed, the more it rises to resist the pressure. The more we are obliged to do the more we are able to accomplish.So don't ever think that the tasks assigned to you by your friends are too many for you to tackle and all this too much for you to digest, and to end;
FRIENDSHIP IS A NECESSITY- CARE FOR IT"!
With best wishes,
