Friendship’s the wine of life but friendship new is neither strong nor pure. I like to meet people as I like the taste of wine. This is because friendships color my life into more meaningful.

 
If there is one ingredient in which adds warmth and love to our lives...it is friendship.
If there is one relationship to help us through all the others...it is friendship.
Friends surround us with the beauty of their caring.
With friends we can share what we see, what we feel and what we love.
Friends help us with our problems because they listen.
And as they listen we begin to hear the language of our own hearts.
With friends we can walk along the remembered paths of our lives and completely share our experiences.
With friends we can work the soil of forgotten dreams that needed to be tended and nurtured once again.
With friends we can plant the seed of our hearts new dreams.
We can always return to a friend like going back to a special place...and find the same warm feeling unchanged by time or distance.
Life gives us friends so we can share the precious times and memorable moments.
Life gives us friends so we can share the growing up... and growing down and old.
With friends we have a place to go to be accepted and understood.
Together we can laugh. Together we can cry.
Our thoughts are heard, our feelings are held in the heart of a friend.
With friends our lives are made more full, more rich, more open, beautiful and blessed!
 
Friends are people with whom we share common interests and ideas. They care about each other and no matter how busy they may be, they find time to be together. Since I reach Taiwan I have meet a lot friends, friends from difference country, difference background, difference languages but these not a factor to hinder out friendship. Friendship can gather all people around the world become the same. We laugh together, we have the same favorite, we shopping together and we appreciate our friendship. 
 
On the other hand, friendships are always “subject to changes in intensity as people move, change their jobs, marry, or discover new interests”. That is very realistic and pandemic in my culture. For example, in schools they always change the classes every year, students meet new classmates each year and also find the new friends from the new class; not because the old friends are bad, but because of they have more time to be with the new colleagues. On the other hand, the friends in a neighborhood, one of them move to another place not only means they will lessen communication with their old neighbors, but also are meeting new friends from the new locations.
 
In my case, I always change my friends when I reform my life circle, such as change my school and living place. Whereas I do not have enough time to train our relationship with my old friends, we do not have long time to communicate. However, I know even though I have meet new friends even thought I seldom keep in touch with them but the old friend will be always in my heart. Just like one day the new friends will become old friends, they will always in my mind. They would not just be a passerby in my life but they enrich my life. Just like the poem below I like mostly. New friends and old friends, by Joseph Parry
 
Make new friend s, but keep the old; those are silver, these are gold;
New-made friendships, like new wine; Age will mellow and refine.
Friendships that have stood the test; Time and change-are surely best;
Brow may wrinkle, hair grow gray; Friendship never knows decay.
For ‘mid old friends, tried and true; Once more we our youth renew;
Bu old friends, alas! May die; New friendship must their place supply.
Cherish friendship in your breast; New is good, but old is best;
Make new friends, but keep the old; those are silver, these are gold.
 
I know I should spend the time to maintain the associations, even though we were so close but forgive my careless. I would like to thank my classmates for their kindness and theirs caring. I am so touched. Besides I appreciate my friendship in TaiwanICDF. It is just a little cordial greetings but it warming my heart. Friends, we are so far away and forgive me I hardly ever send my regard but believe me, I always thinking of you and the memories when we together.
