Reply To: English Question on Social Life & Friendship

Farhang Hooshmand

Unfortunately we are too busy these days to spend time with our friends and socialize with them. But I think nothing in the world is much satisfying comparing to spending leisure time with family and friends. If we have the chance of having qualified, knowledgeable and good friends little by little we learn more from them and eventually will be more similar to them. There is a famous poem from great Persian poet Saadi who said the excellence of your company can affect you and totally change you as those changes which happen in ordinary soil by accompaniment to roses and acquiring the sent of roses as the result of their accompaniment. I deeply believed that we can know somebody by looking his/her close friends. Everybody is reflection of his/her friends. In other words a man is known by the company he keeps”.
