And a youth said, "Speak to us of Friendship."
Your friend is your needs answered.
He is your field which you sow with love and reapwith thanksgiving.
And he is your board and your fireside.
For you come to him with your hunger, and you seekhim for peace.
When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the"nay" in your own mind, nor do you withhold the "ay."
And when he is silent your heart ceases not tolisten to his heart;
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts,all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that isunacclaimed.
When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be clearerin his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save thedeepening of the spirit.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure ofits own mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable iscaught.
And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him knowits flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek himwith hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need, but not youremptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there belaughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart findsits morning and is refreshed.
