More about Friendship

“A person with foresight should exercise more caution and scrutiny regarding the actions of anyone whom he seeks as a friend or an advisor or as the custodian of his household than he exercises in relation to his food and drink. For food and drink can only harm him physically, while friends or custodians can corrupt his soul, his means, and his honor.”

          -Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto, The Path of the Just, Ch. 23: “Acquiring Humility”
