"Most folks figure a true friend is someone who accepts them as they are.  But that is dangerous garbage to believe."  He gave a dismissive wave of his hand.  "The kid who works the drive-through at your local fast-food restaurant accepts you for who your are - because he doesn't care anything about you.  But a true friend holds you to a higher standard.  A true friend brings out the best in you."  Jones cocked his head and leaned across the table as if he were about to tell them a secret.  "A best friend," he said softly, "will always tell you the truth ... and a wise best friend will include a healthy dose of perspective."

-Andy Andrews,   The Noticer:  Sometimes, all a person needs is a little perspective
