A sympathetic friend can be quite as dear as a brother.

All paths of virtue lead to friendship
Inspired by Homer (The Blind Poet)'s quote, "A sympathetic friend can be quite as dear as a brother.". The titled responsion is...
A sympathetic friend can be just as dear as a brother. It does not matter if you know him or her very well or just recognize one of his/her faces every now and then: there are people who just have a special way of getting along with each other. You can easily tell whether or not your friends are the best because they always give each other the support that is needed, even in times when you really need it.
Sometimes, a sympathetic friend can be just as precious as a brother. He/she is the person who always offers you support when you are down and always shows you how to laugh again. This is not to say that there are not some people who find friendship in a very tiresome task, but there are also many people who find it very easy to get along with their pals. You may find yourself in that type of situation very often, especially if you are the type of person who goes from one person to another just to have a laugh, but if you really want to be friends, you should always be there for each other no matter how hard things might get.
The truth is that many people forget the fact that friendship is a two-way street. When you are friends with someone, you should show them how much you care for them by caring about them as well. When you are a friend with someone, you should let them feel the happiness that they feel when you smile at them, and you should make sure that your words reach out to them when they are sad or depressed. A friend is someone who understands your moods better than anyone else in the world. Therefore, you must always try to understand what it is about a friend that makes them happy and sad.
