Plautus фото

„He’s a friend indeed who proves himself a friend in need.“

—  Plautus, Epidicus

Epidicus, Act I, sc. 2, line 9.
Epidicus
Добавить примечание: (la) Nihil agit, qui diffidentem verbis solatus suis. Is est amicus, qui in re dubia te juvat, ubi re est opus.
Контексте: The man that comforts a desponding friend with words alone, does nothing. He’s a friend indeed who proves himself a friend in need.

Stephen King фото

„No good friends, no bad friends; only people you want, need to be with. People who build their houses in your heart.“

—  Stephen King, книга Оно

Источник: It (1986), Ch. 16 : Eddie's Bad Break, §8
Контексте: Maybe, he thought, there aren't any such things as good friends or bad friends — maybe there are just friends, people who stand by you when you're hurt and who help you feel not so lonely. Maybe they're always worth being scared for, and hoping for, and living for. Maybe worth dying for, too, if that's what has to be. No good friends. No bad friends. Only people you want, need to be with; people who build their houses in your heart.

„A friend in need is a friend to be avoided.“

„A glance at the world confirms that their utopian capitalism just can’t compete with the state. With enemies like libertarians, the state doesn’t need friends.“

—  Bob Black American anarchist 1951

The Libertarian as Conservative (1984)
Контексте: Libertarians complain that the state is parasitic, an excrescence on society. They think it’s like a tumor you could cut out, leaving the patient just as he was, only healthier. They’ve been mystified by their own metaphors. Like the market, the state is an activity, not an entity. The only way to abolish the state is to change the way of life it forms a part of. That way of life, if you call that living, revolves around work and takes in bureaucracy, moralism, schooling, money, and more. Libertarians are conservatives because they avowedly want to maintain most of this mess and so unwittingly perpetuate the rest of the racket. But they’re bad conservatives because they’ve forgotten the reality of institutional and ideological interconnection which was the original insight of the historical conservatives. Entirely out of touch with the real currents of contemporary resistance, they denounce practical opposition to the system as “nihilism,” “Luddism,” and other big words they don’t understand. A glance at the world confirms that their utopian capitalism just can’t compete with the state. With enemies like libertarians, the state doesn’t need friends.

„Friend, I haven't a dollar in the world; but if thee knows a fugitive who needs a breakfast send him to me.“

Judge — thee hasn't left me a dollar, but I wish to say to thee, and to all in this court room, that if anyone knows of a fugitive who wants a shelter, and a friend, send him to Thomas Garrett, and he will befriend him!
As quoted in Harriet, the Moses of Her People (1886) by Sarah Hopkins Bradford, p. 54
