The only honest reaction and true loyalty we get is from our animals. Once they're your friends, you can do no wrong.
That statesman is indeed happy who can count as his friends the really honest and consistent, the true Patriots, and the men of honorable thought.
Quite often you look for answers and strength in friends (supposed 2b) around you, without realizing All the true strength and honest answers come from within!!!
Just be honest and true to yourself. If your friends around you love you, they'll wish you the best and want only what's going to make you happy.
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.
Oh it's TRUE, it's DAMN true.
