"Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is." - Jim Morrison.

Do you remember learning how to spell the word "friend"? It's a challenging word, considering it is one of the first words children want to be able to spell when they start writing longer sentences. First children assume the word is spelled "frend" and thus learn that English spelling is not phonetic. When people tell you to "sound it out", they are not being especially helpful with the many roguish English spellings.

After learning that the word also includes an i, the next spelling many children try is "freind". This is when the "i before e, except after c" rule might be taught. As with so many common English words, being able to spell "friend" means that you can spell other words, such as "friendly", "friendliness", "unfriendly" and "unfriend" (a word which is not as new as people often think, but was used as a noun as long ago as the 13th century and as a verb in the 17th century).
