जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

षड्विधं मित्रलक्षणम्

इष्टं ददाति गृह्णाति कार्यमाख्याति पृच्छति।
भुङ्क्ते भोजयते चैव षड्विधं मित्रलक्षणम्॥
iṣṭaṁ dadāti gṛhṇāti kāryamākhyāti pṛcchati|
bhuṅkte bhojayate caiva ṣaḍvidhaṁ mitralakṣaṇam||
[He] Gives what is liked by us, and takes [similarly in return], he tells us his personal matters and enquires about ours.
Eats with us and also invites us to eat with him — these are six characteristics of a [good] friend.
