You can be friendly with everybody, but only friends with some.

Talking about "level" is a sensitive issue. Some people have more or less money than me. Some people are smarter or dumber than me.

We can be friendly with everybody at all levels, but it is most comfortable to make our friends from people who are of similar intelligence or wealth as ourselves.

I worked in Africa for a year as a lecturer. I was friendly with everybody. The senior African administration ignored me as "below" them and did not invite me to their homes. The junior staff and students found me very approachable so guess what? -about five times a day on average, I was asked to lend them money. No one was happy when I said "Sorry, no". I could only be relaxed with my fellow lecturers.

Now I am home again in my own country. A co-worker lives nearby. He is a nice person but frankly he is not very smart. It is frustrating to talk with him.We can't communicate easily. So I can only be friendly with him, I can't be a friend.

make friends with people of different level

Everyone is born to exist. I think it is quite right to make friends with people of different level only if they are honest and sincere to you. Do what you think is right and do what makes you happy. That is the way we should lead our lives.

One thing for sure....

....a COTTON PICKER cannot make friends with a FUND MANAGER!

....a TEA LEAF PICKER cannot possibly make friends with a POLITICIAN.....

yet we need that COTTON PICKER and TEA LEAF PICKER to make our life better!

Alas...........that's  THE WAY!
