a friend…

It was Albert Camus who said of ‘friend’;

“Don’t walk infront of me, I may not follow;Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead;Walk beside me and be my friend.”

I say;

He who i can trust, he is my friend;and my best friends are they who we can communicate in silence.

Pray tell me, what do YOU say?



  1. I say;

    A friend is who knows all my secrets and still wants to be friends with me.

  2. well said ,a friend who knows where u smell and still holds ur hand and stick by you,dats true friendship

    thanks rethots for visting my page

  3. A friend picks his/phone in the middle of the night to hear ur latest lamentations on how your heart has been broken again and still remains supportive even though u both know ur heart was broken cos u were caught cheating.

    You know the beautiful thing about this friend? He won’t (necessarily) advice you then, ‘cos, in reality you’re actually looking for someone to hear you out. For friends, we should be grateful.

  4. well said afrobabe…thanks for coming by my blog rethots…
    …a friends meets you where you are and accepts you as you are but inspires and encourages you to grow into a better person…

  5. Someone else said, “Lead, follow or get out of the way”

    …in that situation, i’d rather lead then.

  6. A friend knows my unspoken requests! Tough one abi?
