Two souls in a boat

What does friendship mean?

two souls “Friends are the people that we should be able to talk to no matter what the subject is. We should be able to tell them our deepest fears and our greatest triumphs. A friend is someone who will laugh when you laugh and cry when you cry. True friendship is something that cannot be replaced by any other person or thing. True friendship gives you the gift of having someone else that you will always have in your life. If a friend moves far away, the miles won't matter in the friendship. You will remain friends in the heart and mind forever. You never forget each other and you keep in contact despite the miles that are between. You can still call your friend and he/she will listen and still make you feel as though he/she is right there by your side. Friends know more about you than you really know about yourself. A friend gives more than he/she takes because that is the true meaning of friendship. Friends, true friends, never disappear or cheat on you. They treat you with respect at all times. If they falter, they apologize for the wrong that they did you. The meaning of true friendship is a person who will always be there no matter what. The years may continue to move on and other people will go in and out of your life, but a friend will be there one hundred percent of the time.” Jane Demerica

What people saying about friendship

“Friendship cannot be defined or expressed in word. But a true freind is the one who multiplies your happiness and divids your sorrows.”
“Friendship means being able to share honest thoughts, opinions, and comments without fear of judgment.”
“Friendship to me means respect. It means being there for one another through good times and bad. It means being honest with each other. Accepting each other just as you are.”
“True friendship is perhaps the only relation that survives the trials and tribulations of time and remains unconditional. Friendship is a feeling of comfort and emotional safety with a person. It is when you do not have to weigh your thoughts and measure words, before keeping it forth before your friend. Different people have different definitions of friendship. "What is a friend? A single soul, dwelling in two bodies" – Aristotle”
“In my mind, a friend is someone you can trust. Not a perfect person, but someone who understands you and cares. A friend would have some sort of connection to you
Friendship is not something of the marketplace”
“Friendship is one of the greatest gifts ever bestowed upon mankind
They know how to comfort me when I'm sad, make me laugh till it hurts, and tell me everything is alright- even when it really isn't.”
“.. friendship to me means "being there" for each other. Friendship goes beyond simply being acquainted with someone. With acquaintances, feelings can be pleasant and "friendly" - where, yes, you have some mutual interests and can enjoy being with and around one another.”
““Their are different levels of friendship. Best friends are two people that share an implicit contract between each other. They have an understanding that they should be there for each other and support each other. Usually, best friends have a lot of common interests and values. If they don't, then they have similar ambitions or common enemies. After best friends, you have just friends, which are people that you can ask for favors once in a while in exchange for reciprocal support on your behalf. Finally, you have acquaintances. These are your most liquid friends. They typically belong to the same network that you do but might not have any similar values or interests. Although friends are nice to have, you could argue that it's possible to live entirely off of a large network of acquaintances. Friendships can also be broken and mended.”
“Real friendship looks at the heart, not just the "packaging." Genuine friendship loves for love's sake, not just for what it can get in return. True friendship is both challenging and exciting. It risks, it overlooks faults, and it loves unconditionally, but it also involves being truthful, even though it may hurt.”
