True happiness consists not in the multitude of friends, but in their worth and choice. (Inspiration Line)

Young adults today seem to be looking for something in the big, noisy crowds—parties, music festivals, entertainment centers—wherever there are lots of people and contemporary music. Often, they find themselves with people they really don’t know. How much better to seek friends you can know well and who have common values.

The righteous choose their friends carefully. . . . One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 12:26; 18:24).
