A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly : and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth : but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise : but a companion of fools shall be destroyed .
