Friendship is one of the grand

Fundamental principles of Mormonism;

It is designed to revolutionize

And civilize the world,

And cause wars and contentions to cease

And men to become friends and brothers.

If a man is my true friend,

I will be a friend to him,

And preach the gospel of salvation to him,

And give him good counsel,

Helping him out of his difficulties.

Friendship is like the blacksmith

In his shop welding iron to iron;

It unites the human family

With its happy influence.

Prophet Joseph Smith
