Peoples paths come together all to briefly when sharing friendship, but that makes those special times no less precious, Can we benefit from encouragement and generosity in a mutually positive way with our friends? Whenever we take from a friend, we should try to give something back. Friends should walk side by side for as long as their journey carries them, without becoming reliant on one another. If you can help a friend, do so without hesitation or expectation for any gain. If there is something to be learned from a friend, accept it in humility. Parting is inherent in friendships. Nothing lasts forever. Transience keeps life stimulating. Ultimately we are all responsible for ourself. There is no path to walk but our own.
We live for the love of friends.
