2. Friendships take time

"Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow ripening fruit." (Aristotle)

 

We do not always know that someone is going to be a long-time friend when they first appear in our lives. Building trust and a foundation for growth takes time. What Aristotle meant by this quote is that you may find people with whom you have a lot in common or some natural affinity to on a few encounters. The real test of the depth of your friendship, however, is going to take some aging, like fruit or fine wine.
