Describe the qualities of a good friend

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐There is a saying that goes "A friend in need is a friend indeed". This proverb means that true friends are those who will always be there for us and will stick by us through thick and thin.

I guess this quality maintains a friendship throughout life. These are the qualities I hope to find in a friend. Hopefully, everyone is blessed with a good friend so the world becomes a more beautiful place to live in. ...read more.
