True friendship multiplies the good in life
and divides it’s evils, strive to have friends,
for life without friends is like life on a desert island.
To find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune,
to keep him is a blessing.
“In poverty and other misfortunes of life, true friends are a sure refuge.
The young they keep out of mischief; to the old they are a comfort and aid in their weakness,
and those in the prime of life they incite to noble deeds.”
