FRIEND (A - Z Challenge)

"A friend is someone who leaves you with all your freedom intact, but who obliges you to become fully who you are."  
~ John L'Hereux

So true, I have never felt comfortable with the clingy friends or the undermining ones...

Diana said...

A well written quote!
Love Di ♥

Natalie said...

Yes, alright. I agree with that. Fanks.

GutsyWriter said...

That sounds like my husband.
Thanks Rob-bear.

Rob-bear said...

® Diana: Glad you like it. It's been rattling around inside my head for ages. I really like it, and use it from time to time.

® Natalie: And thanks (Fanks?) to you.

® Sonia: I figure Duke must be a pretty good guy, if that's how he treats you. (I hardly know anything about Duke, but I intuitively sense that's how he behaves.)

Wise words indeed...

I've always liked this;

Make new friends but keep the old,
these are silver those are gold.

It's by Joseph Parry I believe, and is much longer, but I just remember the lines above.

A friend is someone who will enjoy riding the bus with you even after your car breaks down..

Wish I had one. A friend, not a bus.

Rob-bear said...

® Dana: And I thought you were making friends right and left (not a political statement)in Floruba (I mean "Florida").

Rob-bear said...

® Helen: Good grief; somehow, I missed you in the process. So sorry!
The quote is fantastaic, indeed. So are good friends!

Rob-bear said...

® Lins' lleisio: Sorry to be replying out of turn. (When I get a bad cold, my brain goes even mushier than usual.) Thanks for dropping by.

I remember those lines from a television program for kids when I was growing up. I think I can still recall the music for the song, which was the program's theme song.

Rob-bear said...

® Lydia: An interesting observation. Thanks.

® Tess: Glad you like it! Feel free to use it.
