Section B

We often say, “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” But what is the exact meaning of friendship? No one can really offer a definite concept, because different people hold various views on friendship.

Everyone has his own friendship and some have a lot of friends. But in fact, quantity is not so important as quality. Loyalty is the most important for friendship. No one wants to make friends with those who will betray them.

No matter whether you are married or not, no matter where you live and work, your friends are your friends. It is not based on bloodline. It relies on your intention. To you, some friends are fun-loving, some give encouragement, some offer knowledge, and others help you to find your own identity. Before your friends, you may act as a supervisor, a learned brother, a lovely child, a gentleman or a playmate. In a word, friendship helps you to be a full person. So friendship can benefit.
