Dale Carnagie on how to develop real friendship

From Denny: You would think this quote would be obvious to most people. But then it becomes painfully transparent that there are always some people who were raised by savage animals called abusive humans.

Perhaps it was a lack of good teaching. Perhaps it was a childhood spent just trying to survive one bad moment after another they didn't learn appropriate and beneficial people skills.

Maybe some people just become hard-hearted over time and set aside developing good character as a lame pursuit, not seeing the benefits of it over the long term. Here Carnagie addresses the very reason good character development is beneficial: it brings happiness!

"You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you." - Dale Carnagie
