Comment on the following statement:
|School classmates make the best friends.|
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
In my opinion school friendship is the strongest one. First of all, people that met at schools make the deepest impressions in one's memory. For example, school friends are those with whom one goes through first relationships like: friendship, betrayal, love and so on. Secondly, time proves school friendships and schoolmates have advantages over others, like university or friends at work. For instance, one can be called a real friend only if he or she remains as a friend in difficult situations. There is a saying, “A friend in need is a friend indeed.”
At the same time there are people who say that first friendship is the strongest. Schoolmates go through the very important life periods together like first love, first success, first disappointment etc. That makes their friendship the strongest.
In my opinion these people have a point. First things usually make the deepest impressions. “I will never forget my first car”, some people say. Nevertheless, students in university experience the same things but on another level. The last impressions remain in your consciousness stronger.
In conclusion, I would like to say that if we weigh all the facts that support schoolmate friendship against the university one, we'll see the facts that support university friendship outweigh those against.
