BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER

Blood relationship is always found to be stronger and valuable than mere friendship formed through acquaintance. They have a strong bond of affection than all other relationships. Friends may be sincere and willing to help. But they have limits. Relatives like father, mother, brother and sister will stand with us risking even their lives. Even if friends are true and sincere, we cannot expect the greatest sacrifice from them. They give more importance to their own kith and kin. Even then true and sincere friendship should be regarded. The most unself­ish service is often got from our kith and kin than from friendship formed through acquaintance.
