A true friend is there to help and they never expect anything in return. A good friend is a friend that is only there for you when it is convenient for them. They expect something in return for all that they do for you. A good friend might not be here for you tomorrow. If I had to choose between a true friend and a good friend I would always choose a true friend.
Both Taylor and Bradstreet find eternal love in a masculine figure in their lives through these two poems. Taylor finds his love in God while Bradstreet finds hers in her husband. When Taylor says “Then mine apparel shall display before Ye/ That I am a clothed in holy robes for glory,” (lines 17-18) he is showing that he lives in the light of God. Taylor refers to his clothing as a symbol of the Holy Spirit and his devotion to God. Taylor adored God for his various manly qualities; such as strength, power of will, and understanding.
This means justice is love distributed but can’t be separated from each other. Fletcher writes, ‘Justice is Christian love using its head, calculating it’s duties, obligations, opportunities and reasons. Justice is love coping with situations, where distribution is called for, ‘For’ justice is love at work in the whole community, for the whole community. Fletcher’s fourth fundamental principle is “Love wills the neighbours well, whether we like him or not’. This relates to the love that Fletcher is concerned about isn’t a matter of feeling, but of attitude of the will towards the other person and desire for the good of other people.
Our focus as believers, for ourselves, is to love and worship God, to uplift Him in everything we do, to glorify Him in our lives, to love those around us, to be a light in a dark world, and to share God’s love with everyone around us. It ultimately comes back to us serving God and pleasing Him (Crabb, 1977, p. 21). As Psalm 144:15 states, “Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord”. Rather than seeking happiness, one should focus their efforts on seeking God. From there, true happiness will emerge.
Lastly, there is the “Complete Friendship”, this is a friendship based on goodness; here one loves the friend for his/her own sake with a genuine love of friendship. Both individuals in this friendship are trying to achieve goodness in each other’s lives; it is as if the other is their “second-self.” This friendship is one that has the most potential to develop into a long lasting and fulfilling relationship.

He is a caring brother and addresses her as his ‘dear sister’. This highlights his affection and the closeness of their relationship. This open relationship is obvious when we look at the topic of conversation as they willingly discuss matters of Ophelia’s virginity, ‘chariest maid’. However, this can also be perceived as blunt. It is also apparent when he says, ‘if he says he loves you, /It fits your wisdom so far to believe it’, paying little attention to the way this is affecting Ophelia’s emotions.
Their love making does not make neither of them feel ashamed or downgraded because they have a special friendship and comfort with each other. It also means that there are no secrets in their relationship. Olds then says, “I can barely walk/I wobble through the granular shadowless air/I know where you are with my eyes close, we are bound to each other with huge invisible threads/Our sexes muted,exhausted,crushed,the whole body a sex,’’(8-14) Olds says their sexes are muted meaning that their genders are muted. They do not see each other as a woman or man but as
Honesty truly is "The Best Policy.” When you communicate well, the family is "well". Problems that might arise, can be solved. Sometimes through changes and sometimes through acceptance, at least as a temporary solution, which may later be completely solved. Agreeing is one form of solving, but also agreeing to disagree on some issues can be the final solution. In this way there should be happiness and acceptance of one another.
To me it was magical, a soul connection and of that I will never be ashamed. I don’t have the “need” to be with someone, I wasn’t with you because you were “safe” because you were never really there, I didn’t dream you up to be someone that you aren’t. I still believe in you and the capacity of love you have. I never expected you to be perfect, just as I hope no one ever has that expectation of me. I simply wanted us to grow if it was meant to be.
