MARCH TWENTY ONE

TRUE friendship is not based upon selfish bargaining. It makes no undue demands, is not overly sensitive, gives without thought of return, and generously overlooks faults. It is careful not to offend, and is tactful and discriminating when shadows of doubt appear.

True friendship expresses itself in interest, sympathy, good-will, and affection. It is free from self-consciousness and self-assertiveness. It is always ready to listen and to serve. If you would have a true friend, first be one.

Diligently cultivate within yourself the rare qualities which comprise such a friendship. In the degree that you are ready to give, serve, sympathize, and help, with no thought of return or reward, in such degree will you build sweet and enduring friendships.
