There is a freedom from both people to express their opinions to each other in order to strengthen the friendship. It does not matter whether the marriage or friendship is by choice or by force.

They spent hours nibbling on clover and wiggling their whiskers. Most of all, they loved playing with Harriet’s Wii. One tragic day, the Wii broke. The next day, Harriet waited and waited for Alice to come over to play. Alice did not come that day, nor the next. Alice never came over to play again.

This can be figured out through a process of elimination. First, one must divide this person into two entities: the person and themselves. Immediately, we can eradicate the friendship of utility, for the person cannot receive material goods from themselves, they simply “have” things. We can also remove the friendship of pleasure since these things change about people. For instance, people can gain or lose weight or increase or decrease their intelligence. Finally, we can attribute internal friendship to that of the good. This is valid because theVIEW DOCUMENT
1545 words - 6 pagesAristotle on Friendship
We are social creatures. We surround ourselves with other human beings, our friends. It is in our nature. We are constantly trying to broaden the circumference of our circle of friends. Aristotle understood the importance of friendship, books VIII and IX of the Nicomachean Ethics deal solely with this topic. A modern day definition of a friend can be defined as “one joined to another in intimacy and mutual benevolence independently of sexual or family love”. (Oxford English Dictionary). Aristotle’s view on friendship is much broader than this. His arguments are certainly not flawless. In this essay I will outline what Aristotle said aboutfriendshipVIEW DOCUMENT

The statement stands true not only in physics and chemistry, but also in relationships and friendships. We tend to be attracted to people with personalities that differ from ours, so life would be more interesting, and desire the opposite of what we have. A perfect example of this, is Sula and Nel, best friends from Toni Morrison's novel, "Sula", where the conventional ideas of good and evil are turned upside down. The two girls are like opposite sides of a magnet, strongly attracted toward one another and useless when split apart. Life puts their friendship to the test by toying with love and sexVIEW DOCUMENT

Looking into the topic we see a lot of the time men saying that they're best friends with this girl that they have fallen head over heels for.

Wikipedia gives us the definition that friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between two or more people. But is that all a friendship really is about? In my opinion everybody has their own definition of a true friendship.
One of the basic human needs is communication. Communicating with somebody who you can trust, who always understands and supports you, a person on whom you can rely on in any situation. This is the exact definition of a good friend – a sincere, faithful and honest person. In our big world it is hard to find such a person. But it is even more difficult to keep him next to you because of some small things and not to betray theVIEW DOCUMENT
669 words - 3 pages rejection of lies, falsehood and distrust.
Friendship should grow as a fragile and delicate flower "watered" by thoughts about each other and "fertilized" by worthy actions. In friendship interests of your friend should weigh no less than your own interests. The principles of equality and mutual respect are the ones that put people on a higher level and help keep the heart feeling unconditional love to each other.
Of course, friendship is a concept bilateral. Therefore, we need to be cautious of potential friends, but finding a close one, it is worth the effort to avoid losing him. There is only one way to have a true friend: you must be a loyal friend yourself. Two people equally should cherish their relationship, protect it, and try to save it. Only in that case friendship will be really strong and long-lasting.

According to Mandal and Fratik Baran, Benny’s use of body language can be represented as hierarchy (2014, p.417-421). This tells Smalls that it will take more than just a friendly wave to befriend the best baseball player in his new neighborhood.
