Four Real Friends

1560649_4143154474695_6459265015411592090_nThe friend who is a helper,

the friend in sorrow and in joy,

the friend who gives good counsel,

the compassionate friend

—these four real friends

the wise should know at their true worth,

and cherish them with care,

just like a mother loves her dearest child.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Sigala Sutra
