A Separate Peace

What does Gene mean when he states that one of Finny's reasons for living was "a flow of simple, unregulated friendliness" between people?

Do you think it is a good "reason for living"? Please explain.

If you look at the entire quote in context, you'll see that this quote is actually a description of Finny, which alludes to his carefree, friendliness and ability to give those around him a sense of peace. Finny saw this simple friendliness as his purpose and reason for living.
