Definition of Friendship

A ship big enough to carry two in fair weather, but only one in foul.
  The sea was calm and the sky was blue;
  Merrily, merrily sailed we two.
      (High barometer maketh glad.)
  On the tipsy ship, with a dreadful shout,
  The tempest descended and we fell out.
      (O the walking is nasty bad!)

Armit Huff Bettle
