It’s nice to have a lot of friends. You can enjoy many things together. All my classmates are rather nice but all of them have different characters. Some are courageous, kind-hearted, curious, faithful, thoughtful. In my class there are no heartless pupils but there are some egoists and selfish men. Sometimes we can be idle and boastful but we are always ready to help each other in trouble. We can learn about different characters from books and films. We also read different news about people in papers. All of us like amusing games and funny stories. A good friend is a friend in need, who is always willing to do something useful for you, who can give good advice, who can keep secrets. Some of my friends are my neighbors. We live in the same street and go to the same school. My friends usually obey their parents and teachers. They never complain of anything, they are worried about each other’s health. All of them are fond of nature. They like to take care of animals and plants. In summer and in spring they help their grandparents to work in the garden: to dig the soil, to cut useless brunches, sow seeds, water and weed plants. At harvest time they gather crops of corn, fruit and vegetables. They never do harm to birds. They protect their nests, make bird tables and put food on them. We have a lot of interesting conversations in our class. We discuss different problems. Sometimes discussions are very exciting. In the evening I often talk to my friends over the phone. When some of my classmates are ill they have a good reason to ring up their friend and learn what the homework is. We also exchange opinions on different matters. Boys and girls get along well. They don’t quarrel. We have a lot in common. My classmates enjoy out-of-class activities and traveling. Traveling helps us to become friendlier. Besides we are always full of impressions and excitement. It’s good to have a friend who has fine qualities in character: generosity, being reserved, reliable, intelligent, persistent in studying, straightforward, reasonable, decent, honest, polite, punctual, kind, faithful, warmhearted .You can be always sincere with such a friend, you can think aloud with them. I hate selfish, flattery, lazy, indifferent, boastful, false and greedy people. The proverb says: ”No man is useless while he has a friend”. But the greatest value that guides me in my life is kindness, and it’s no wonder. Usually kindness is harmoniously connected with other good qualities. If a person is not kind, if he’s selfish, if he cares only about himself, then his other qualities - courage and will-power are worthless. You can see what a person is worth through his attitude towards others. If he is devoted to people, he is devoted to his work.Kindness is the main thing, the essence of what is best in a human-being. It’s unpleasant to deal with unreliable people and there is no doubt in it. Such people don’t possess the feeling of duty, they can let you down at any moment, they cannot be friends in need. When people are stubborn, it’s also no good. They don’t respect the point of view of other people, they are sure that they are always right, they don’t follow advice of other people. Sometimes it’s dangerous to deal with such people, you can’t rely on their support. I think it’s good to develop persistence and confidence in oneself, because if a person is not reliable, he is unable to make conclusions and come to right decision in proper time. A person can prove to be a personality by his deeds, not by his words. The proverb says: ”Actions speak louder than words”.
