["Friends"—The Christian Science Monitor, Boston, U.S.A., Feb. 15, 1921]

If there is any one thing that has been a greater conundrum than all others in the general worldly experience of men it is this: "What is a friend?" Philosophers, sages, poets, and theologians have all busied themselves trying to solve this now–you–have–it–and–now–you–don't idea of the friendship of men, but they have made human friendship no more substantial nor true friendship more visible. Any individual who wonders at the vastness of this subject which has monopolized much time since time began, needs only to turn the light within and see if he is really immune from dependence upon earthly friends or if he has simply failed to recognize his subtle leaning and weakness in this direction. It is a point well worth uncovering and handling for all time.
