friendship is a priceless gift..

The place where one lives, however, can contributelittle towards tranquillity; it is the mind which must make everythingagreeablc to itself. I have seen men despondent in a gay and lovelyvilla, and I have seen them to all appearance full of business in the midstof a solitude. For this reason you should not refuse to believe thatyour life is well-placed merely because you are not now in Campania. But why are you not there? Just let your thoughts travel, even tothis place. You may hold converse with your friends when they areabsent, and indeed as often as you wish and for as long as you wish. For we enjoy this, the greatest of pleasures, all the more when we areabsent from one another. For the presence of friends makes us fastidious;and because we can at any time talk or sit together, when once we haveparted we give not a thought to those whom we have just beheld. Andwe ought to bear the absence of friends cheerfully, just because everyoneis bound to be often absent from his friends even when they are present. Include among such cases, in the first place, the nights spent apart, thenthe different engagements which each of two friends has, then the privatestudies of each and their excursions into the country, and you will seethat foreign travel does not rob us of much. A friend should be retainedin the spirit; such a friend can never be absent. He can see everyday whomsoever he desires to see.

~II+ ON DISCURSIVENESS IN READING Judging by what you write me, and by what Ihear, I am forming a good opinion regarding your future. You do notrun hither and thither and distract yourself by changing your abode; forsuchrestlessness+ is the sign of adisordered spirit. The primary indication, to my thinking, of a well-orderedmaid is a man's ability to remain in one place and linger in his own company. Be careful, however, lest this reading of many authors and books of everysort may tend to make you discursive and unsteady. You must lingeramong a limited number of masterthinkers, and digest their works, if youwould derive ideas which shall win firm hold in your mind. Everywheremeans nowhere. When a person spends all his time in foreign travel,he ends by having many acquaintances, but no friends.

And this is particularly true when one thing is advantageous to you andanother to me. Am I speaking again in the guise of an Epicurean/a? But the fact is, the same thing is advantageous to me which is advantageousto you; for I am not your friend unless whatever is at issue concerningyou is my concern also. Friendship+ producesbetween us a partnership in all our interests. There is no such thingas good or bad fortune for the individual; we live incommon+. And no one can live happily who has regard to himselfalone and transforms everything into a question of his own utility; youmust live for your neighbour, if you would live for yourself. Thisfellowship, maintained with scrupulous care, which makes us mingle as menwith our fellow-men and holds that the human race have certain rights incommon, is also of great help in cherishing the more intimate fellowshipwhich is based on friendship, concerning which I began to speak above.

Friendship is a complicated thing. It can save your life -- like when a good buddy gets you through a bad breakup -- or it can drive you absolutely nuts.

"But what," you say, "will becomeof my crowded household without a household income?" If you stop supportingthat crowd, it will support itself; or perhaps you will learn by the bountyof poverty what you cannot learn by your own bounty.Poverty+ will keep for you your true and tried friends; you will berid of the men who were not seeking you for yourself, but for somethingwhich you have. {Timon+} Is it not true,however, that you should love poverty, if only for this single reason,- that it will show you those by whom you are loved?

Therefore, to omit the ancient definitionsof wisdom and to include the whole manner of human life, I can be satisfiedwith the following: "What is wisdom? Always desiring the same things,and always refusing the same things."/a You may be excused from addingthe little proviso, - that what you wish, should be right; since no mancan always be satisfied with the same thing, unless it is right.
