offense lodges in the bosom of fools.”

Stay calm when problems arise

but he that is wise keeps it calm to the last.”

Before the quarrel breaks out, take your leave.”

so that you will know how you should answer each person. ”
“But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate, freely forgiving one another just as God also by Christ freely forgave you.”
Be a true unselfish friend – all the time!
” A True friend shows love at all times and is a brother
who is born for times of distress.”
