Have you ever had someone in your life who helped you figure out who you were? Someone who showed you the right path. Someone who was there right next you even if you did not take that path. Someone who always seemed to be right, but never held it against you when you were not. Someone whom without your life would most likely be entirely different. I have. Her name was Jessica.
Jessica was more than my neighbor. She was more than my mentor. She was my best friend. Jessica lived three houses down from me when I moved into a new neighborhood. She made moving to a new neighborhood a lot easier. She was one of those people who was friends with everybody. She was

It was raining the day Mark Turner died. On a dark, rainy summer night, he foolishly got in the passenger side of a 1998 midnight blue Eclipse. His 19 year old cousin Sam, was the driver, and Sam had a little too much to drink that night. At about three in the morning, they were leaving a party that one of Sam's friends threw.

My best friends name is Brittney Lewis. We have been friends since the ninth grade. We have a few things in common, but we're mostly best friends because opposites attract. Brittney and I met in a Physical Science class we had together. At first we didn't talk very much if at all, but after a while we grew on each other and stated hanging out together. Since then we have remained friends and since shared many things together like good laughs, jobs, and even some times that weren't so good for both of us. Mostly, I'm just happy to be able to have such a great friend like her.

She doesn’t know this, but she changed my life. She was there for me when it seemed like no one else was. When most of my friends were dissolving around me and I just didn’t feel like I could do anything right, she was there, and she made everything seem okay.

It didn’t matter because she was there and she made me feel safe. She’s my best friend, and I love her and admire her for so many different reasons.

I remember one of my BFFEL (best friends for eternal life), I think she was the closest to me because we had so much in common. We were both from countries that weren’t the U.S., we had both left our regular lives far away, and we had both been crazy enough to be each other’s best friend. Even though she was from Canada and me from Argentina, and we only had one year together, you could swear that we were friends from a really long time.

My heart pained as I looked in my bestfriend’s once twinkling hazel eyes that were now hollow and dull. Why were those coal colored eyes filled with hatred? I felt like a pariah but I was standing next to the person who knew me best. Why was I blamed for everything she caused? I'm a scapegoat for her many sins. I suppose I did not release I was her dumping bag, and perhaps that's my fault. Her gaze barely met mine, and avoided my yearning one. An awkward silence graced over us like the uninvited friend at a birthday party.

I have been a baseball fan all my life. I remember watching my beloved St. Louis Cardinals play in their robin’s egg blue uniforms in the early 1980’s.

When I first met Josh I wasn't overly impressed. I had walked into a Hooters restaurant to dine with friends, and sitting at the table that greeted me was Josh. I didn't notice his rugged good looks. I didn't pause to gaze down upon his broad shoulders, and thick chest. I hardly noticed the caramel color of his eyes, nor his nicely manicured goatee.
What I saw, was a broken tooth. A very tiny, short, yellowing, broken upper lateral tooth. Nice tooth, I remember thinking. Who could have known that tiny insignificant flaw was what made me take notice and start paying

Let's face it, most of us love dogs. Getting a dog can be a good decision that leads to a rewarding loving relationship. It is also a lesson in responsibility and patience. Living with a dog can be a daydream, or a nightmare; the experience depends on the choices of the owner.When most people go grocery shopping, they take inventory of what they have, what is still needed, have a budget to stick to, and then they make a list. But when it comes to making the life changing decision of getting a dog, some people will go out shopping and let the dog choose them!

Everyone has someone they consider a best friend. That best friend is like no one else. You can tell them all your secrets without fear of them getting out. They're the person you can act like a nerd with, and know they're going to be just as nerdy, like two peas in a pod. I've known my best friend since I was in the third grade when she moved and came to my school. Today, we're still going to school together, and are better friends than ever. We're like good wine, we get better with age. We have so much in common it's sometimes scary. We think the same boys are cute. We both drive Jeeps. Abercrombie is by far our favorite store.

There are two sides to dogs being stated as “Man’s Best Friend”. We have explored the pet to master relationship, but we must also consider the loyalty and friendship put out by pet owners to their pet companions. An article from the Chicago Tribune states that, “there are 58 million dogs in the United States, and 62 percent of them receive Christmas gifts.”(Mosley) Dogs are becoming more and more a part of the family. My girlfriend’s family had their annual family pictures taken in December, but this year they decided to include their two Chihuahuas in the pictures.

Man’s Best Friend
One of the most hotly debated topics between pet owners has been the differences between cats and dogs. This is because each of these pets offers its own unique qualities that millions of people love. As someone who has owned both cats and dogs for many years, I appreciate many of the different qualities of these two animals. Both exhibit their own unique qualities that people need to take into account when choosing between them; however, I believe dogs are the better pet because they are more sociable, smarter, and more loyal to their owners.
The first reason dogs are more superior than cats is because the dog is a more sociable animal. A dog’s natural tendency is to be a

Hamlet’s Best Friend, Horatio
The Shakespearean drama Hamlet shows much deception and crime. Few friendships in the play survive till the end. But Hamlet and Horatio, best of friends, are not even separated by the hero’s death. This essay will elaborate on this relationship.
A.C. Bradley in Shakespearean Tragedy notes a problem involving Horatio in Shakespeare’s Hamlet:
When Horatio, at the end of the soliloquy, enters and greets Hamlet, it is evident that he and Hamlet have not recently met at Elsinore. Yet Horatio came to Elsinore for the funeral (I.ii. 176). Now even if the funeral took place some three weeks ago, it seems rather strange that Hamlet

BAM! Dogs, now a man's best friend. The most common pet, thanks to wolves. Now let's go
way back in time before dogs existed. Now, wolves gradually evolved into dogs. A wolf and a dog
are the same species. They also have the same DNA. Hunting dogs are more related to wolves.
Some people long ago tried to breed dogs by changing their features. For example, a doberman
pinscher got most of its tail cut off. Now they have such small tails! A corgi has a natural tail. A great
dane has surgically cut ears so that they are standing up. A scottish terrier looks like it has a beard but
its just that the hair on its neck got shaved off.
After the common breeds got created, the owners gave

fear. Recently, I have had the courage to go up to my neighbor's dog and play with it. At first I almost fainted but soon realized that this dog was filled with love and care. I knew the only way to deal with my fear is to confront it. I noticed that they treated their dog as a family member. Overtime I have learned more about the nature of dogs, and their relationships with human beings. As a result, I began to appreciate the behavior of dogs.My curiosity has changed my attitude towards dogs. Like humans not all dogs are perfect. Watching the love that one dog gives to another human being has given me a positive outlook on dogs. For example, a blind man was rescued from the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001. His dog guided him out of the tower during a tragic event. The trust and relationship that one dog has given to a human being is incredible. What more can one ask for? Who knows, maybe one day I may get a dog, and ask myself, "Is a dog truly Man's Best Friend"?

Technology is the dog of our generation. Dogs have been called “man’s best friend” even before their domestication. Wolves were excellent trackers, while humans were excellent killers. They used this relationship to both of their advantages; the humans would follow the wolves to the prey, the humans would kill the prey, and always leave some leftover for the wolves. Once dogs were domesticated they continued to play a huge role in our lives. Today technology is a factor in every aspect of our lives, from it waking us up in the morning to, entertaining us throughout the day, to a background noise while we fall asleep.

The definition of a best friend can have significantly different meanings to people who have them. Some define a best friend as a person who you can act silly with, who loves you for who you are, and will be loyal to you. Also, a best friend is described as someone you want to spend all your time around, and never get tired of them. These qualities can be found in people through different types of cultures, races, and countries. However, they can also be found in animals, and most commonly in the dog. The phrase “a man’s best friend,” did not cling to the dog for any reason, it’s because dog’s share the same qualities as a human best friend. The dog can compare to a best friend because they

Dogs are the first domesticated animal, and commonly known as "man's best friend.'' Dogs have accompanied humans, and been considered pets, for around 10,000 years. They have been used for working, hunting, but most commonly as a pet. To this day, hundreds of different dog breeds exist, coming in various sizes, colors, and shapes. Although dogs are currently viewed primarily as pets, they have not always been viewed this way and have had an evolution of their own. To fully understand dogs, one must take a look at where dogs came from and how they have evolved.
Dogs are a subspecies of the gray wolf. Dogs have inherited many behaviors from the wolf ancestors they have evolved from, which

Background and rationale: Dogs as a man’s best friend has been a prevalent view point among modern day humans, and some even accept it as fact. However, the genetics behind what makes dogs so compatible with mankind, and the history of domestication are not well known to most.

During high school I had a best friend who I have been inseparable with since kindergarten. We were inseparable until my best friend began the use of Marijuana. Myself having no knowledge of this new drug, my friend informed and convinced me it was harmless and a non-toxin herb. At first his use for marijuana was only occasional, but as time passed his use of it only increased. It was no doubt that he eventually got addicted. Not only did it show in his appearance but his personality as well. Since I was completely against the idea of the use of marjiuana, my best friend and I became distant with one another.

as to why an average person can't become friends with Aristotle.The largest objection to my argument would be that Aristotle would make a good friend because, being high-minded, he would know what is best for me as a friend. One of Aristotle's guidelines to a true friendship states that a friend is someone who wishes for and does what is good for the other. Being as high-minded as Aristotle is, he would find it easy to determine what is best for his friend. This positive attribute for Aristotle would make him a good friend to someone for that trait. Aristotle is a high-minded philosopher and therefore can determine the best possible solution for many problems that may face his friend. Friends
