"Who is more indefatigable in toil, when there is occasion for toil, than a friend? Who is readier to rejoice in one's good fortune? Whose praise is sweeter? From whose lips does one learn the truth with less pain? What fortress, what bulwarks, what arms are more steadfast than loyal hearts?"

It is very difficult to find a friend who meets these stringent specifications. You can only dream of them. Do they really exist in the first place?

Yes Joseph, I agree it is a very difficult thing to develop. I think it may even be harder as we age. When we are children it seems new friends come easier. It may be we expect more as we get older and we aren't as quick to overlook shortcomings. But when we have a good friend it surly is a treasure.
