- Friends are the pearls of our life. This word bears its great meaning only to those who could understand the greatness of its meaning.

Goran Stojanov once said, "One should always take care when making a choice of a friend-as the friends are the ones you pick by yourself." My opinion is a bit different than Gorans, I prefer to say, "Friends come and go, but with the precious few we shall live our lives happily."
