About friendship in times of hardship

“An honest friend is he who, with stillness and without disturbance, shares in his fellowman’s sorrows in times of temptation, and in the needs and calamities brought on by life’s circumstances (3:79). He is a perfectly honest helper and a defender that completely partakes in others’ hardships (4:99)”.
