One Who Sympathizes

“In four ways, young householder, should one who sympathises be understood as a warm-hearted friend:
(i) he does not rejoice in one’s misfortune, (ii) he rejoices in one’s prosperity, (iii) he restrains others speaking ill of oneself, (iv) he praises those who speak well of oneself.”
