    Stranger, acquaintance, close friend ...

    Hi,

    I have written the following line, and I am not sure how to correct it grammatically. Hence, seeking for help here. The sentence is written below:

    Stranger, acquaintance, close friend, cousin, brother or even a mother, one can only say or do so much; leave the rest to the perception or maturity of the other.

    Regards, Kiran

    Note my changes above. I have the same question as teechar.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
