“Friendship” in many languages

How do you say “Friendship” in you language? Aside from the different words what are the colors, flavor, form, or feeling by which you recognize a friend? Though universal, it is a given that cultural differences may shade how we experience a true friend. How exciting to think about who might be a friend? And how that compares with someone else’s experience of friendship.
