Encouragement is not what you give your friend while he is already winning,
It is being there when the world has given up on him..
Support isn't what you offer when the road is smooth
It is being of help when he's in the middle of a storm
Kindness isn't buying a cup of coffee when you've got a meal or two yourself,
It is sharing your bread with your neighbor even if its the last you have left..

Listening is not when you hear stories of those lesser than you and feel superior,
It is when you drive down to lend your ears to someone who's having the darkest hour right now
Loyalty isn't just standing up for a friend behind his back,
It is standing up for him even if that's going to put you in jeopardy..
Friendship isn't only about sharing an umbrella during the rains,
It is about doubling gains and halving pains, be it on the plateaus or plains!
