The Good & Beautiful Friend (Kalyanamitta):

The friend, who is a helpmate, the friend in both happiness and woe,
The friend, who gives good counsel, the friend, who sympathizes too -
These four as friends the wise behold and cherish devotedly as does
a mother her own child. Digha Nikāya 31

Who is hospitable, and friendly, tolerant, generous, and unselfish;
A guide, an instructor, a leader, such one may gain honour and fame.
Digha Nikāya 31

One is not intelligent just because one speaks much!
He who is peaceable, friendly, and fearless, is called wise.
Dhammapada 258

If you find a wise and clever friend, who leads a good and pure Noble life,
you should, overcoming all obstacles, keep his company joyously and aware!
Dhammapada 328
