Friendship of the World: Vanity


The vanity of all friendship which is not founded in true principle, was never more plainly expressed than in an honest, but heartless, sentence of one of Horace Walpole's letters. 'If one of my friends happens to die, I drive down to St. James's Coffee-house, and bring home a new one.' The name of 'friend' is desecrated in a worldling's mouth: but there is a friend.
