trust him as you trust yourself, you are making a grave mistake,
and have failed to grasp sufficiently the full force of true friendship.

else about us: every one of our friends, the more so the more intimate we are,
influences the direction our life takes, just as our life's direction influences
our choice of friends. Friendship is crucial to what most of us come to be in life.
