At a social function, the conversation drifted to the subject of friendship. An athlete said, "In my opinion, a friend is a balancing pole that enables us to walk the tightrope of life, without falling."
A physician said, "I believe a friend may be likened to a soothing ointment for the cuts and bruises of life."
A jeweler said, "A friend is a golden link in a chain of life."
Then a woman in mourning spoke up and said, "A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world goes out."
