One thought on “Somerset Maugham on Friendship

  1. Although I think this means to choose friends who exhibit good qualities and morals, I also kind of see it as the importance of having friends who are characters. Anyway, here in the US, I run into the same type of person so often who is trying to have the friendly, upbeat, politically correct, family-oriented personality, and it is boring. Often I would much rather have a conversation with a character- someone I don’t fully understand and might not agree with, maybe he is a curmudgeon, but whose views are refreshing and whose comments make me laugh.
