Quotable Quotes

I came across two quotes while surfing the net that i would like to share.
"No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow" -- Alice Walker.
I love this quote. I truly believe that a person who cares about you, will also care about your opinion, your feelings and your thoughts. That person will never try to restrict your dreams, goals or ambitions. However a friend or a person who cares about you must also provide you with constructive criticism whenever it is needed. Constructive criticism is also something that allows you to grow into a better person. But always be cautious and careful in giving criticism, be considerate and offer criticism in a kind way so as not to offend the person you're giving it to.

“You can easily judge the character of a person by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.” --James D. Miles

I've seen that some people are only nice or considerate with people who can provide them with things or help. When this is no longer the case then they are abandoned or ignored for other people that can provide help. Sometimes, people you consider family or friends can sometimes do this to you too. For example you really need someone's help but they don't want to help you because it's inconvenient for them. But this person will not hesitate to come to you for help whenever he/she needs it. Being a considerate person, you'll help with the problem and you do this because you consider that person family or a friend. The people i'm describing sometimes are totally unaware that they take advantage of other people and can sometimes be selfish as well as self-absorbed. To these people i say be more considerate of others and try to help your family or friends even when it is inconvenient for you because you never know when you'll need their help in the future.
