No young man starting life could have better capital than plenty of friends.
They will strengthen his credit support him in every great effort, and make him what，unaided, he could never be.
Friends of the right sort will help him more to be happy and successful than much money or great learning.
Friendship is no one-sided affair.
There can be no friendship without reciprocity.
One cannot receive all and give nothing，or give all and receive nothing，and expect to experience the joy and fullness of true companionship.
Those who would make friends must cultivate the qualities which are admired and which attract.
If you are mean stingy and selfish，nobody will admire you.
You must cultivate generosity and large-heartedness; you must be magnanimous and tolerant;
you must have positive qualities, for a negative, shrinking, apologizing，roundabout man is despised.
You must believe in yourself. If you do not, others will not believe in you.
You must look upward and be hopeful，cheery, and optimistic.
No one will be attracted to a gloomy pessimist.
