• Friendship is a calm and sedate affection, conducted by reason and cemented by habit; springing from long acquaintance and mutual obligations, without jealousies or fears, and without those feverish fits of heat and cold, which cause such an agreeable torment in the amorous passion.

    David Hume (2016). “Essays Moral, Political, Literary: Revision of Great Book”, p.161, VM eBooks
