Friendship and expanding our intellectual horizons
Every day that passes, it brings with him dozens of opportunities to make new friends, and the more we take these opportunities and live in the lives of others, we found our lives growing and enjoyment increased..
If we are keen to broaden our intellectual horizons, through friendship, we strengthen our personalities and shield ourselves from many decades and shortcomings. A man who lives alone and limits his thinking to himself, embodies his troubles, compounds his pain, deprives himself of his encouragement and keeps away his illusions. He therefore is often unable to cope with the problems of life, making himself home to hatred, hatred, envy and hatred.
The life of a man who earns the friendship of many does not live a single life. He lives a thousand lives.
A man who makes himself many friends, with different thinking, inclinations and talents, does not live one life, but a thousand lives. Since Aristotle's time, philosophers have almost unanimously agreed that many friends come even before health and sin in order of the blessings and goodthings that man enjoys in life. Although we can win this great grace if we wish, we rarely find anyone who is keen to achieve it and win it. In addition, few of us are trying to expand their knowledge with the enthusiasm that made Johnson say:
"A day when I don't make a new friend, it's a lost day of my life"
Dr. Johnson like most who have succeeded and excelled in various fields of life, and have kept their success for a long time - has taken his friends from different classes, professions and businesses.
According to the book "How to Win Success and Leadership?" Gaining people's friendship is much easier than we think, and daniel Webster used to be kind to talking to his employees about their business, so they would let him down in affection and intimacy, and more people tend to talk about what they care about.
It attracts our hearts, to express to people warmly and sincerely our appreciation to them whenever they do us a service, which breaks down the barriers between us and them and loves them of us, and brings them to continue their services and loyalty to us.
Friendship is not only continuous interviews and contacts, but also emotional response, mutual understanding and trust. They are not affected by the distance between friends or the passage of time. The famous traveller (David Livingstone) spent much of his life in the jungles of Africa away from people, yet he had countless friends. His youngest daughter says in her memoirs about him:
"Every year he sent hundreds of messages to his friends scattered around the world, most of whom knew in a passing encounter or in the wake of a word of appreciation and praise".
William Osler was saying:
"A man begins to age when he is unable to make new friends, because the continued mixing of people is evidence of a willingness to develop and absorb new ideas, vitality and love of life." This is right, and if we simply relate to our old friends and co-workers, who have been briefed on all their ideas and opinions, our mental development has ceased and we have been transformed from the innovations that drive boredom and boredom.
In conclusion, we can say that everyone has a special talent from which those who contact them can benefit from it.
