Wishing to be friends is quick work, but frie.. Aristotle Quotes

Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow ripening fruit.
- Aristotle -

@Fokhrul Islam Difference between true friendship, which grows through time, and is, according to Aristotle, "a slowly ripening fruit" and acquaintances, maybe also years-long, but that often develop out of interest or are simply "fragile and superficial". Therefore, effortless bonds that most of the time won’t last. True friendships is challenging because it implies having to go through life’s vicissitudes that often divide people. Being friends from an early age is maybe easier because that’s when one develops as a person, day by day, and friends become so close and empathic against anyone and anything.
