Friendship; The True & the False.

Qualities of a Friend – Thoughts by William Penn.
 
A true Friend unbosoms freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a Friend unchangeably. These being the Qualities of a Friend, we are to find them before we chuse one.
 
The covetous, the Angry, the Proud, the Jealous, the Talkative, cannot but make ill Friends, as well as the False.
 
….. Let Virtue bound thy Friendship; Else it is not Friendship, but an Evil Confederacy. (350)
 
Union of Friends
 
They that love beyond the World, cannot be separated by it.
 
Death cannot kill, what never dies.
 
Nor can Spirits ever be divided that love and live in the same Divine Principle; the Root and Record of their friendship. (402)

One thought on “Friendship; The True & the False.

  1. William Penn’s spirit is roaming the Southampton Friends Meeting House where Abraxas meets. He visited the meeting house several times in “real” life. Can’t get him to converse with me though.
