    i see that no one care for her demand.

    please guys try to includ a short translation with your proverbs in each messages (translation is only permitted in this topic) to help the beginers to better understand the preverb.
    it will be nice from you to do that from now on.

    N.B1: any chatting or messages in any other language than english will be removed, only translation of the preverbs (with the original one in english) will be tolerated.

    N.B2: any message that doesn't include a preverb like this message from titrit, will be starting from now considered as H.S and then removed.

    N.B3: please do the preverb translation, cause i don't have time to translate all of them<D

    i tried to give a preverb but... i don't like them, and i don't remember any of them:eek:

    --> Absence makes the heart grow fonder. (when you are away from someone you love, you love them even more)

    -->Advice is least heeded when most needed. (When a problem is serious, people often do not follow the advice given.)

    -->An empty purse frightens away friends. (When one's financial situation deteriorates, friends tend to disappear.) :s :s

    I love these 2 proverbes and, I love you all my FRIENDS I know what does mean the real friendship !


    * Good FRIENDS are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget

    الأصدقاء الحقيقون يصعب إيجادهم ، يصعب تركهم ، ويستحيل نسيانهم



    * When it hurts to look back, and you're scared to look ahead,you can look beside you and your BEST FRIEND will be there

    عندما يؤلمك النظر للماضي ، وتخاف مما سيحدث في للمستقبل ، انظر لجانبك ، وصديقك الحميم سيكون
    هناك ليدعمك



    P.S: titritt (njima) just for you I did translate them and I share your idea ... it si good to know the taranslation of each proverbe !

    for my friends only !


    *Good friends are like stars, You don't always see them, but you know they are always there !


    الأصدقاء الحقيقيون كالنجوم ، لا تراها دوما ؛ لكنك تعلم أنها موجودة في السماء


    * Most people walk in and out of your life, but only FRIENDS leave footprints in your heart.

    معظم الناس يدخلون ويخرجون من حياتك ، لكن أصدقائك الحقيقيون هم من لهم موضع قدم في قلبك
