And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart; since in friendship, not to mention, all the thoughts and desires and expectations are born and shared with joy not acclaimed. When you leave the friend you grieve not; because what more you love him may seem clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber looks clearer from the plain. And you do that in friendship there is no other purpose, unless the deepening of the spirit. And the best of you and for your friend. If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know well the flow. Because it is never your friend who have to look in the hours to kill? Seek him always with hours to live. For it is his need to fill your need, but not your emptiness. And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter and shared pleasures. Why is the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
