Acquire a friend

(Ethics of the fathers 1:6): Yehoshua ben Perachia says: ‘Acquire yourself a friend.’

Acquire a friend not by spending money on him but by spending time with him: listen to him, care for him, put youself out for him. This advice can be applied to any relationship that you want to flourish whether it is with your spouse, parents children or colleagues.
