One definition of reward is "something of value given in return for an act." In my opinion friendship does not demand a reward. Friendship is the valuable reward.

Una definición de recompensa es "algo de un valor dado a cambio de un acto." En mi opinión, la amistad no exige una recompensa alguna. La amistad es la valiosa recompensa.

  • VEry good, bandit! Tiny mistakes in a complex sentence, just articles and prepositions: ..algo de 'un' valor dado a cambio "de" un acto. En mi opinión, "la" amistad no exige recompensa "alguna". :) - cogumela Feb 21, 2011 flag
