A book is a friend.
A friend in need is a friend indeed.
A friend you have to buy; enemies you get for nothing.
A hedge between keeps friendship green.
All are not friends that speak us fair.
Better an open enemy than a false friend.
Books and friends should be few but good.
Choose an author as you choose a friend.
False friends are worse than open enemies.
Friends are thieves of time.
He that has a full purse never wanted a friend.
If you find a leopard in your house make him your friend.
In hardship you know your friends.
It is easier to visit your friends than to live with them.
Keep your friends close, your enemies closer.
Lend your money and lose your friend.
Old friends and old wine are best.
Prosperity makes friends, and adversity tries them.
Short reckonings make long friends.
Short visits make long friendships.
The best mirror is an old friend.
The friend that can be bought is not worth having.
