No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.

Alice Walker

People do not wish to appear foolish; to avoid the appearance of foolishness, they are willing to remain actually fools.

I agree with the first quote, who would keep a "friend" that demands silence and denies your growth?

The second quote seems a little harsh.

Love the first quote and agree with Lilo about the second one.

I thought the first and second part of the first quote didn't flow as it might have. I do agree, however. The second quote, well, I think it's a bit too sweeping. I do think there are plenty of people like that, I've known some, but it's not true of everyone, by any stretch.
