A true friend should be like a privy, open in necessity.
A tree never hits an automobile except in self defence.
A stumble may prevent a fall.
A spoon does not know the taste of soup, nor a learned fool the taste of wisdom.
A single bag of money is stronger than two bags of truth.
A mere friend will agree with you, but a real friend will argue.
A lost friendship is an enemy won.
A little with quiet is the only diet.
A good friend is better than a near relation.
