Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Quotes 251. today we have another one by Ben
Franklin. And yeah I've done probably at least about ten by him in the past. So if
you like this quote, you should check out other ones that I've covered by famous
quotes by Ben Franklin. They're always pretty good. But anyway, let's look at
today's quote. Today's quote is " A false friend and a shadow attend only when
the Sun shines. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. This quote by Ben Franklin
is a warning to be aware of and be wary of. Aware of meaning you realize it. Know
it and be wary of it. You know be careful of it.
Be wary of fair-weathered friends. All right. A fairweather friend is a good noun phrase
in itself. That's a type of friend that you might think is not really a true
friend. They want to be your friend only when times are good. So that's what
he's saying. He's warning you about a fair-weather friend. Okay, A fair-weather
friend is the type of friend that will only be around and want to spend time
with you when things are going well. So basically it means when the sun is shining.
When things are going well. Everybody's happy. No problems. They are there. They
are still around. Okay, As soon as you have real problems and need their help, he or
she will abandon you. Disappear like hey what happened to you ?
You don't add to the phone anymore. You're gone. So long and make excuses. Well
if you get in touch with them, they will probably make a lot of excuses why
they're too busy. They can't come around. Blah blah blah.
Okay. Ben Franklin is letting you know that a fair-weather friend is a false friend.
He's not a true friend, not a real friend and just like a shadow only wants to be
around when the Sun shines or really can only be around when the Sun shines. Or
everything is good. So that's what he's telling you. So that a fair-weather
friend is like a shadow. They're only around
the sun is shining and when bad times come, when it rains, the shadow disappears.
Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for your time. Bye-
