Friendships: Something So Strong….

“One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.” Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Friends … something so strong
Memories from childhood play
Coursing through our veins

What is true friendship to you? True friendship is like a rock by the sea. The waves crash against it but it stays steady and strong…

“A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.” Leo Buscaglia

Friendships… like rosebuds
Unfurl, blossoming with time
Deepening the love

“Friends and good manners will carry you where money won’t go.” Margaret Walker

Friendships: Something So Strong….

Like strong crashing waves…
True friendships steady our hearts
Healing all that’s past.

We have all sorts of friends but our true friends are steady and sure and not swayed by the tremors of life. What kinds of friends do you have?

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Something So Strong.
Tell us the origin story of your best friend. How did you become friends? What is it that keeps your friendship rockin’ after all these years?

Positive Motivation Tip: True friendship is like a rock by the sea. The waves crash against it but it stays steady and strong…

  11. Love the first friendship quote! Over the years my friendships have been tested, so I cherish the few real friends that I have. Here is one of my favorite friendhip quotes:

    “We all lose friends…we lose them in death, to distance and over time. But even though they may be lost, hope is not. The key is to keep them in your heart, and when the time is right, you can pick up the friendship right where you left off. Even the lost find their way home when you leave the light on.” – Amy Marie Walz

  14. One would like to think one’s friends are true. Time and life, however, show it to be different. I do have one friend, though, whom I still see in occasion that I went to school with. What a pleasure it is to see her and chat – it is like years have not gone by.

    I have found that the term friend has changed it’s meaning over to years. People call others ‘friends” after meeting them for a day. To me that would be an acquaintance. My hubby has friends. Many of them that he has known for 40 years or better. They get together quite often and are there for one other. I on the other hand do not have many friends if in fact any at all but maybe 1. Life happens and you lose contact and it takes a lot for me to let people into my inner circle.

    Friends are definitely one of the most important things in life! I just read a caption under the “Humans in NY” Facebook page that was about lasting friendship and it was so touching.
