The Loner

If you can find one friend — good, persevering and true,
You will overcome all sorrow; mindful and happy will you live.

If you can’t find a good friend — live alone, like a king
who has renounced his throne or a lone elephant in the wild.

If you can’t find good company, solitary life is best;
There’s no fellowship with the fools; Be like the serpent lonely in its den.
