There are three faithful friends: an old wife, an old dog, and ready money.
Then come the wild weather, come sleet or come snow, We will stand by each other, however it blow.
Friendship requires deeds.
Never contract friendship with a man that is not better than thyself.
Be not the fourth friend of him who had three before and lost them.
Do not use a hatchet to remove a fly from your friend’s forehead.
Do not have evil-doers for friends, do not have low people for friends: have virtuous people for friends, have for friends the best of men.
Two friends, two bodies with one soul inspired.
Foresake not an old friend, for the new is not comparable unto him. A new friend is as new wine: when it is old thou shalt drink it with pleasure.
The amity that wisdom knits not, folly may easily untie.
