Perché tu debba cercarlo
Per ammazzare il tempo?
Cercalo sempre per vivere il tempo.
Deve colmare infatti le tue necessità,
non il tuo vuoto.
E nella dolcezza dell'amicizia
Ci siano risate,
E condivisione di momenti gioiosi.
Poiché nella rugiada
delle piccole cose
Il cuore trova il suo mattino
E si rinfresca.

    Friendship

    And a youth said, "Speak to us of Friendship".
    And he answered, saying:
    Your friend is your needs answered.
    He is your field which you sow with love and reap with
    thanksgiving.
    And he is your board and your fireside.
    For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek
    him for peace.
    When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the
    "nay" in your own mind, nor do you withhold the "ay".
    And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to
    his heart;
    For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all
    desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy
    that is unacclaimed.
    When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
    For that which you love most in him may be clearer in
    his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer
    from the plain.
    And let there be no purpose in friendship save the
    deepening of the spirit.
    For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own
    mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the
    unprofitable is caught.
    And let your best be for your friend.
    If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its
    flood also.
    For what is your friend that you should seek him with
    hours to kill?
    Seek him always with hours to live.
    For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
    And in the sweetness of friendship let there be
    laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
    For in the dew of little things the heart finds its.
    Kahlil Gibran (Gibran Khalil Gibran)
