What is a Friend?

Now that you have read all of these friends quotes I have a question for you: What is your definition of a friend?


To me a friend is a blend of many things. A friend takes you as you are, they don't try to change you, they love you for who you are.

A friend is someone ho is always there for you, through thick and thin they are still your friend.

A friend is someone who won't put you down or hurt you feelings when others may,

A friend is someone who believes in you.

A friend is someone you can tell all of you secrets and they will never repeat.

A friend is someone who loves you because they want to.

Sweetie Pie, Douglas goes right to the heart of it. I like "A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway." Afriend just gave me a pillow with that saying on it.
