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.

    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
