People often say funny, in this life “Thach Sanh is less, but Ly Thong is more” for that reason.

There are many people who fall into bankruptcy, the king is in debt, and their families are broken because of believing in you. So, friends have many classes, when you don’t really understand much about you, you should be careful, don’t rush to live your life to the fullest. However, there are many people who succeed through encouragement and help from friends. Meeting a good friend is a precious blessing, it is necessary to cherish and preserve that noble friendship.

According to the experience of the World-Honored One, a good friend is someone who shares, is always ready to help, is patient, speaks in peace, lives openly with friends, is careful when talking about others, does not abandon you. When in danger, do not despise you when your business fails… Those who have these qualities are certainly good people who need to be close and make a long-term relationship.

Being close to you is like walking in the morning dew. In the long run, your shirt will definitely get wet. The influence of friends has a huge impact on our lives. Therefore, we must choose friends to play, find good friends to study, work together, cultivate body and mind to become good people, useful to ourselves, family and society.
