Friends are so important to all of us. They bring support, love and excitement to our lives. How do Chinese people say about friendship? There are some proverbs I would like to share with you:

  • 患难见真情。
    huàn nàn jiàn zhēn qíng
    A friend in need is a friend indeed.
  • 得朋友难,失朋友易
    dé péng yǒu nán, shī péng yǒu yì
    A friend is easier lost than found.
  • 需要之时方知友
    xǖ yào zhī shí fāng zhī yǒu
    A friend is never known till a man has need.
  • 没有十全十美的朋友
    méi yǒu shí quán shí měi de péng yǒu
    A friend without faults will never be found.
  • 君子之交淡如水
    jūn zǐ zhī jiāo dàn rú shuǐ
    A hedge between keeps friendship green
  • 什么人交什么朋友。
    shěn mé rén jiāo shén mé péng yǒu
    A man is known by his friends.
  • 东西是新的好,朋友是老的亲
    dōng xī shì xīn de hǎo, péng yǒu shì lǎo de qīn
    Everything is good when new, but friends when old.
