Acquaintance Quotes

If you are a Facebook user, probably you would be aware of a column where you are asked to categorize the friend as either a close friend or an acquaintance. So is there a difference between friend and acquaintance? At least, many of us fail to understand the difference. An acquaintance is a person you might know but isn’t really a buddy you hang out with often or spend a lot of time with.  A Facebook friend, whom you rarely meet, is probably one of the best examples to help you distinguish between the two words. You might have a large number of friends you hardly know, on social networking sites, but may be having a handful close friends in real life.

Throughout our life we may be meeting thousands of people and get acquainted, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we can reveal a lot about our lives to them. Many people claim to have experienced instances in life, where a close friend had broken trust and turned into a foe overnight, but a person who has been an acquaintance has all of a sudden turned into a close friend. Go through these quotes to gain a little wisdom about the word acquaintance.
