But it is not easy to make friends. A man must possess some qualities. First, he must trust his friend. Only then he can open himself up to him. Secondly a friend should not always find fault with his friend. Thirdly, real friendship is possible among the equals. At the same time no side should try to make friend as a matter of gain. Finally, a friend must be free from jealousy. He should be above suspicion about his friends. But there should be sweet air of love and goodwill among them. Only then friendship may of great value. What a precious thing true friendship is! says Rabindranath Tagore.

To make friends is a science; to keep friends is an art. Friendship will end if the friends are not kind and tolerant to one another. The aim of friendship must be to serve more than to be served. He must try to give more than he receives. This process of give and take should be a selfless process.

Besides, we must know how to differentiate a true friend from a false one. A false friend makes friendship with selfish ends. But such friendship does not last long. A false friend always tries to take advantage of friendship. Be careful of such a false friends. Shakespeare says:

‘A friend in need is a friend indeed’

‘Words are easy like the wind faithful friends are hard to find.”
