Look at a person's friends, and you'll learn a lot about that person. Who your friends are will determine who you will slowly become, especially when you're young. Friends should be people you want to be like, who value you, and are trustworthy. As we look into the lives of another, we should see ourselves, in part. We must identify with them. Hurt when they hurt. Laugh when they laugh. Experience their triumphs, their failures, their hopes, their desires, their secrets, their fears, and their dreams as if it were our own.

Only that in you which is me can hear what I'm saying. ~Baba Ram Dass

I tell you everything that is really nothing, and nothing of what is everything, do not be fooled by what I am saying. Please listen carefully and try to hear what I am not saying. ~Charles C. Finn

The human soul wants to be discovered.
So look past her shortcomings,
Her imperfections,
Her walls of defense
And see the beauty within her.
Love her as you long to be loved.
For when you love someone's soul,
You are loving your own.
