Friendship

From the February 12, 1916 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


In no other one things, perhaps, does mortal mind so betray its followers as in its perverted sense of what constitutes friendship. Any one can recall an instance where some one submitted to a slighting remark or offensive attitude on the part of one of his associates or "friends" without retaliation in kind, and perhaps without apparent notice of what was very palpable to the onlookers, and the judgment meted out by these same bystanders later may have been that he was guilty of something or he never would have submitted to such treatment without resentment.
