Spread More Knowledge
: The knowledge in your large cranium could save the world. You know this to be true, but it seems that more often than not, your wise bits of useful information seem to fall on deaf ears and never gets the attention it deserves. If you want to spread your knowledge to the masses and enlighten humanity, it's time to get proactive and stop keeping those brilliant thoughts all to yourself.

Friendship is that unique relationship
that knows no difference, cultural or otherwise. Time and again, authors
the world over have devoted themselves to the study of this beautiful
relationship. Having the gift of authorship, they penned wonderful tales
about friendship, imaginary or otherwise. Here is a compilation of some fabulous short stories on friendship that inspire you to become not only a better friend and make you understand the meaning of true friendship.
"A True Friend"
In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to
hold knowledge in high esteem. One day one fellow met the great
philosopher and said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?".
"Hold on a minute," Socrates replied. "Before telling me anything I'd
like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test.".
"Triple filter?". "That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk
to me about my friend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you're going to say. That's why I call it the triple filter test.
The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you
are about to tell me is true?" "No," the man said, "actually I just
heard about it and...". "All right," said Socrates. "So you don't know
if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of
Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend
something good?" . "No, on the contrary...". "So," Socrates continued,
"you want to tell me something bad about him, but you're not certain
it's true. You may still pass the test though, because there's one
filter left: the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about
my friend going to be useful to me?" "No, not really."
"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is
neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"
Well we can always participate in loose talks to curb our
boredom. But when it comes to you friends its not worth
it. Always avoid talking behind the back about your near and dear friends.
