Friendship is the best gift to the man kind. The only relationship which does not relate to blood is friendship. A friendship has many forms and shapes. It is like water. If we pour the water into a jug, it takes the shape of the jug. If you pour the same water into a bowl, it takes the shape of the bowl. A friendship will take different shapes and sizes according to our heart. Friendship gives pleasure to human beings. Where there is friendship, then there will not be any sorrow. When you see a child laughing you will forget your sorrows for a second. This is also true when you are with a friend. You tend to forget your sorrows, too.

True friendship will never make others down. It helps a lot to make friends to come up from the situation. Friendship will never expect anything in return for all its offerings. It saves life without looking into any situation.

Friends come with friendship. They are the channel of love and affection. Friends are like a child's heart who doesn't have any wrong thinkings. When there is a friend with us, we feel secured, happy and comfortable which you can't get from others.

Friendship is also a blessing. A friend is the channel through whom great emotional, spiritual, and sometimes even physical blessings flow. Friends will cheer us when we are sorrowful or depressed. Friends will challenge us to attain our original limits with encouragement when we allow ourselves not to go beyond our reasonable boundaries. Friends will motivate us when we are ready to give in, and they can provide for us when life falls apart. Friends are there when all is well, and we want someone with whom to share life’s pleasant and memorable moments. We often just want them around, to have a good time, to laugh, to act silly and to enjoy some mutually liked activity. A true friend will motivate us to attain our goal. They will stand by your side when you need  support. 

Friendship is the only everlasting feature in this world. Friendship is like a banyan tree. Banyan tree seed is very small, but when it comes out of earth nothing can stop its growth. The same applies to friendship. Friendship will reside in our heart like the banyan tree seed. When it finds the correct soil in another heart, it starts its growth. At one stage, when you get more friendly with that person, it will become tree. After that, nothing in this world can stop it from growing. Friends will try to find new ways to make you stay strong. True friends may not save but they will never let you fall. Friends will find innovative ways to stop you from falling and try to get more help to lift you up.

We may have a lot of friends but try to get a friend who is honest and sincere. That is the only meaning of true friendship.
