How many friends a person needs?...

A student came to a teacher and asked him, “Master, how many friends a person should have – one or a lot?”
“Everything is very simple,” the teacher answered, “pick me that red apple from the highest branch.”
The student looked up and answered, “But it’s too high, Teacher! I can’t reach it.”
“Ask a friend, maybe he will help you,” Master answered.
The student called another student and stood on his shoulders.
“I still can’t reach it, Teacher,” said the disappointed student.
“Don’t you have more friends?” the teacher smiled.
The student asked more friends who started standing up on each other’s shoulders and backs grunting, trying to build a live pyramid. But the apple was too high, the pyramid crumbled and the student wasn’t able to pick the longed apple.
Then the teacher called him back.
“So, did you understand how many friends a person needs?”
“I did, Teacher,” the student said, rubbing the injured sides, “o lot – so together we could solve any problem.”
“Yes,” the Master answered, shaking his head in disappointment, “of course you need a lot of friends. So that among all of these athletes there would be at least one smart person who would figure out to bring a ladder!”

inspirational stories about friendship

Two good friends had a quarrel one day, and one of them slapped another. The man felt pain, but said nothing and wrote on the sand: “Today my best friend slapped me.”

Two friends continued walking and found an oasis. They decided to swim in a wellspring and suddenly the one who was slapped, started to sink, but his friend saved him.

When he regained consciousness, he wrote on the stone: “Today my best friend saved my life.”

The other friend, who slapped and saved his friend’s life, asked him:

– When I hurt you, you wrote on the sand and now you are writing on the stone. Why?

His friend said:

– When someone hurts us, we should write it on the sand, so that the wind could erase it. But when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it on the stone, so that the wind could not erase it.
