Best friend

Who is your best friend?

“Mirror is my best friend, because when I cry it never laughs”. Charlie Chaplin

Lucky are the ones who claim, they have the best friends in this world.

But Chanakya (The ancient Indian philosopher, economist, jurist & royal advisor)  has a different view.

“There is some self-interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self-interests. This is a bitter truth.” 

Do you agree?

If you don’t agree what is the reason?

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

Namaste🙏🙏🙏

    Well the self interest would be because that person makes you laugh or feel good

    Aw, need pause for reflection here Philo. Sometimes I find it a challenge to ‘appease’ friends.

    of course there is mutual benefit to be friends. This is why they come and go and why I don’t agree with Facebook friends. That being said if that benefit wanes and the relationship continues this is called love which has no such restrictions

    Laugh more than yesterday
