A True Friend

March 28

Cultivate a friend whose ways are seven. What seven?

He who gives what is hard to give,
does what is hard to do,
bears what is hard to hear,
he confesses his own secrets and
keeps your secrets,
in times of trouble he does not forsake you
nor does he forsake you when you are down.

Excert from "Daily Readings from the Buddha's Words of Wisdom"
