Be A Friend

Be A Friend


I would rather have one small rose
From the garden of a friend

Than to have the choicest flowers
When my stay on Earth must end.

I would rather have one pleasant word
In kindness said to me

Than flattery when my heart is still
And my life on Earth has ceased to be.

I would rather have a loving smile
From friends I know are true

Than tears shed round my casket
When this world I've bid Adieu.

Bring me all your flowers today
Whether pink, white or red:

I'd rather have one blossom now
Than a truckload when I'm dead.

Don't worry about knowing people...

just make yourself worth knowing.

When you ask how someone's doing...

wait to listen to the answer.

Anyone can give advice,

but a real friend will lend a helping hand.

Pick your friends...

but never pick them to pieces!

A good friend is one who keeps up with you

But never looks down on you.

Deal with the faults of your friends

as gently as if they were your own.

The reason a dog is everyone's friend

is that he wags his tail

and not his tongue.
