Your friend is your needs answered.
He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving. And he is your board and fireside. When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the ‘nay’ in your mind, nor do you withhold the ‘ay’.
And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart.
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that us unacclaimed .
When you part from your friend you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
And in the sweetness of the friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
