On Friendship and Love


No one is perfect until we fall in love with that person. Isn’t that the truth?


Love starts with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear. 


What do you do when the only person who can make you stop crying is the person who made you cry? 


Don’t cry over anyone who won’t cry over you.

Actions speak louder than words. 


The hardest thing to do is watch the one you love, love someone else


If you think that the world means nothing, think again. You might mean the world to someone else. 


Don’t frown. You never know who is falling in love with your smile. 


Whether we realize it or not, everyone we know is in some way special to us. 


“If friendship is your weakest point then you are the strongest person in the world.” Abraham Lincoln 


“Truly great friends are hard to find, harder to leave and impossible to forget!”


A best friend is like a four-leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have.


“True friends are like jewels, precious and rare

False ones are like autumn leaves, found everywhere.”

A Favorite School Teacher  


The most important thing to remember is always appreciate the friends that you have. 


When it hurts to look back, and you’re scared to look ahead, you can look beside you and your best friend will be there. 


“Good friends are like stars; you don’t always see them but you know they are always there!”


Don’t let the past hold you back; you’re missing the good stuff. 


“A true friend is someone who says nice things about you behind your back.” 


A fight may come and go very easily, but a friendship could last forever.


True friendship never ends. Friends are forever.


“I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.” Robert Brault 


There may be somebody who is thinking about you right now and wishing that you were around. That’s the wonderful thing about friendship you always feel loved and cared about

Appearances Can Be Deceptive…

How our ego, with preconceived notions, sometimes misjudges a person… A lady in a faded grey dress and her husband, dressed in a homespun suit walked in timidly without an appointment into the Harvard University President’s outer office. The Secretary could tell in a moment that such backwoods, and country hicks had no business at […]


Ponder Over These…

There are two things that pierce the human heart: Moments we wish would last forever. Moments we wish had never begun.  Today’s life is only for today. Enjoy every moment because even today’s newspaper will become tomorrow’s waste paper. Having a sharp memory is a good quality of the brain. But the ability to forget […]


Modern Commandments to Live By…

We need to reflect and understand the deeper meaning of these statements and follow them in our lives at all times. 1) A mistake that makes us humble is better than an achievement that makes us arrogant. 2) A blind person asked Swami Vivekananda: “Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?” He replied: “Yes, […]

    Respected Swamiji,
    Sadar Pranam and Hari Aum,

    With Personal regards,

    Today is “Friendship Day” and this article is apt for today. It teaches me about true friends. There are so many “friends” in our lives, but some particular friends only help us when we most need it. Books are also our good friends. A True friend loves us without any selfish motive. Swami-ji your blessings are always with me and my family.
