Sometimes you pick your friends, sometimes they pick you. (Steve Klaka, real estate professional)

Many of our friends are people we grew up with in the neighborhood or were fellow students in school. Some of those relationships may last a lifetime; others are over very quickly. Sometimes we choose friends because we have common interests and values. But the really rewarding friendships may be those initiated by someone who wants a wholesome relationship with us.

A wise person wins friends. (Proverbs 11:30)
