Having friends is one of the finest things a man can have. You can have victories, but those need to be celebrated with friends to become real victories. Sometimes you need a friend just to remind you of celebrating life:
Party on, Garth! - Party on, Wayne!
There’s a vitality in having and being a friend that’s very much different from just knowing people.
On the other hand: Friends accept your strangest characteristics. Friends do see your inner nature even when your life seems to be a mess to yourself.
That’s what friends are for.
