Bible: Proverbs 27:9-10

27:9 Ointment and incense make the heart rejoice, 1 

likewise the sweetness of one’s friend from sincere counsel. 2 

27:10 Do not forsake your friend and your father’s friend,

and do not enter your brother’s house in the day of your disaster;

a neighbor nearby is better than a brother far away. 3
