It take one to know one!

A dear friend came over a couple of weeks ago and we chatted for a long time. We have been friends for around 44-45 years. We went to med school together and were in high school before that.

Friends are the family we choose for ourselves and the basic reason for that is that we recognize certain traits in them which match our own. It takes a kindred soul to recognize another. In other words, it takes one to know one!

This saying could be applied to other situations too, like when a crook/con-man recognizes another without evidence because there is something that hints at their inner truth. Similarly, a person can connect to another with having similar interests or convictions.

  1. What a wonderful ode to friends! I have a pillow that says, “The most valuable antiques are old friends!” Glad y’all got a chance to catch up! I do have a “it takes one to know one,” story; however, it’s a little more…ahem…PG, PG-13, maybe? Well, it’s not exactly nice, so I won’t write it here! But I thought about it and it made me giggle. So that can’t be bad! Mona
