I may (again and again) sound like old grumpy man, but simply somehow I think that friends today are not friends like 20 or 30 years ago.
It is like today everyone look for quantity instead of quality. I do not have too many friends, real friends, maybe one or two. But because that it is much more valuable friendship, and it is something that really can not be bought.
Friendship just like everything else important in life need to be taken care carefully, and needs hard time and desperate situation to be really tested.
