How to choose good friends?

Friends certainly influence you whether you realize it or not. Thus, we all should choose our friends carefully.

"A false friend is worse than a true enemy"

"Don't go for the looks, it can be quite deceiving. Don't go for wealth, even that fades away -- go for someone who makes you smile because only a smile makes a dark day seem bright. Hope you find that person."

"A good friend listens to you, really cares, always shows an interest in you, puts your needs first and is there for you when you need him or her the most even if you've just had a disagreement."

False friends are like our shadow, keeping close to us while we walk in the sunshine, but leaving us the instant we cross into the shade. - Christian N. Bovee

"My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me." - Henry Ford

"Best friends are like diamonds, precious and rare. False friends are like leaves, found everywhere."

What qualities do you think a good friend should have?

A good friend is the one that we can talk with and be on our side in any situation and also honesty is very important.

I often quote:
“A good friend is like a Computer.He “ENTERS” your life, “SAVES” you in his heart,”FORMATS”your problems,” and never “DELETES” you from his life.”
My best wishes

True friends are really hard to find. And I am lucky I've got one. With her and through her, I've realized the meaning of friendship.
Have a nice day! Thanks for this friendly post.
