It is said that one should keep one's allies within view, and one's enemies within reach. A valid statement. One must be able to read an ally's strengths, so as to determine how to best use them. One must similarly be able to read his enemy's weaknesses, so as to determine how to best defeat him. But what of friends? There is no accepted answer, perhaps true friendship is so exceedingly rare.

For if one is remembered by a friend, one is never truly gone.Grand Admiral Thrawn in Star Wars Books, Thrawn

Qilori: "If they suspect you're hunting pirates-"
Thrawn: "You think they only suspect? Yes; point taken. Let's remove any lingering doubts."
