Be Slow To Give up Your Friendship

Make no man your friend before enquiring how much he has used his former friends for you must expect him to treat you as he treated them.

Be slow to give your friendship. When you have given it, strive to make it lasting for it as reprehensible to make many changes in one’s associates as to have no friends at all.
– Isocrates.
