A man of too many friends comes to ruin

    But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother

Faithful are the wounds of a friend
    But deceitful are the kisses of an enemy

A friend who is gracious in correction
    is graciously shown the door
But he who is harsh with discernment
    will be welcomed back again

A friend loves at all times
    And a brother is born for adversity

Empty promises of a good friend
    Are like fine vessels of clay

Many will seek the favor of a generous man
    And every man is a friend to him who gives gifts
