The only way to have a friend is to be one - Emerson

Information Please - A story about a friendship between a boy and a stranger by Paul Villiard

Dale Carnegie said, "You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you." To drive the point his point home, Carnegie tells how dogs have learned the fine art of making friends. When you get within ten feet of a friendly dog, he will begin to wag his tail, a visible sign he enjoys your presence. If you take time to pet him, he will become excited and lick and jump all over you to show how much he appreciates you. The dog became man's best friend by being genuinely interested in people. - Glenn Van Ekeren (Contributed by Caryn Stapp)
