Everyone agrees that people need best friends in their lives. Even just a person, he or she changes your life and broaden your horizons. Many people compensate the need of friend with siblings but if you have a troublemaker sibling or she is far away from you, your new sibling will your best friend. Moreover, you can choose this new sibling instead of accepting automatically.
When you check some quotes about best friends, you will see the same kind of point of view. For example, “No friendship is an accident”. It clearly reflects that I mention above and indicates you can choose your friends. If you do not get along with some one, you can stay away from him and will not call him as a friend. Thus, friendship is totally up to you so it is not resemble with family stuffs because although you do not want to see your parents or siblings, it is hard to get away from them.
Another quote is from Hellen Keller and she says, “Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light”. She emphasizes that if you are alone, having a good time is not so important because you do not have a friend. However, if you have friends, darkness will not be a problem for you because you can get rid of it by the help of your friends.
Friends also accept you as you are and do not criticize like your family. They do not tend to shape your appearance or character. Here, we can give an example from William Shakespeare. He says, “A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.”
In general, when you try to explain what is friendship or how can you find your best friend; you cannot an exact answer because there is no certain way for it. Life can bring that person suddenly and you do not guess that person will be your second sibling. Related with these questions there is a quote from Muhammad Ali. He says, “Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.” Therefore, if you have one precious best friend, you need to know her or his value.
