On Friends and Foes …

Posted on December 1, 2010. Filed under: The Good Book |

This is stuff from the Good Book –

A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter. He that has found one, has found a treasure.

Let those that are at peace with you, be many. But let your advisor be one in a thousand.

When a powerful man invites you, be reserved and he will invite you the more often.. He will test you through much talk and while he talks, he will be examining you.

Never trust your enemy, for like the rusting of copper, so is his wickedness. Even when he humbles himself and goes about cringing, watch yourself and be on your guard against him.

Do not put him next to you, lest he overthrow you and take your place.

If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat. And if he is thirsty, give him water to  drink, for you will then heap coals of fire on his head.
