& The Prophet goeth:
And a youth said, Speak to us of
And he answered, saying:
He is your field which you sow with love and reap
And he is your board and your fireside.
For you come to him with your hunger, and you
seek him for peace.
When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the
'nay' in your own mind, nor do you withhold the
And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen
to his heart;
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all
desires, all expectations are born and shared, with
joy that is unacclaimed.
When you part from your friend, your grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be clearer
in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is
clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save the
deepening of the spirit.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its
own mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and
only the unprofitable is caught.
And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know
its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek him
with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be
laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its
morning and is refreshed.
