A Perfect Friend?

" We shall never have friends if we expect to feel them without fault."

When I am making new friends, I can balance my desire for certain character traits and qualities with a gracious understanding that people are not perfect. There is no such thing as perfect or normal for that matter - we are all a little quirky.

Do we ever rule out friendship with someone because of some personal flaw we've seen in them?
It is good to be careful about the character of those we choose for close friendship, but sometimes we are a little too quick with our judgments.
We may miss out on a friendship that could bring fresh perspective into our lives.
If we are impossible to please, we may find ourselves enjoying our high standards alone.
