And can speak their language.
I have friends among rulers
And can understand their strategies.
So fear not, o stranger,
That you may be misunderstood,
Speak your heart of your trouble
And trust me to help solve it.”“

„On the whole, I don't have any friends. Friends come and go; I've lost my trust factor. I believe I have people who think they're my friend. And I believe that there are people probably in their heart who are friends toward me or are friends to me. But they're not my friends, because what I learned is that fear is stronger than love.“
