[Sunlight] "How will you know your real friends?"



How will you know your real friends?
Pain is as dear to them as life.
A friend is like gold. Trouble is like fire.
Pure gold delights in the fire.

Dustân bin ku neshân-e dustân
dustân-râ ranj bâshad hamcho jân
Dust hamcho zar balâ chon âtesh ast
zar-e khâles dar del-e âtash khvosh ast

-- Mathnawi II:1458; 1461
