No possession is gratifying without a companion.
[Lat., Nullius boni sine sociis jucunda possessio est.]
No blast of air or fire of sun
Puts out the light whereby we run
With girdled loins our lamplit race,
And each from each takes heart of grace
And spirit till his turn be done.
Tell me thy company and I will tell thee what thou art.
Better your room than your company.
Two i's company, three i's trumpery.
If it be honor in your wars to seem
The same you are not,--which, for your best ends,
You adopt your policy--how is it less or worse,
That it shall hold companionship in peace
With honour, as in war: since that to both
It stands in like request?
Like, according to the old proverb, naturally goes with like.
[Lat., Pares autem vetere proverbio, cum paribus facillime
It is a comfort to the unfortunate to have companions in woe.
[Lat., Solamen miseris socios habuisse doloris.]
A pleasure companion on a journey is as good as a carriage.
[Lat., Comes jucundus in via pro vehiculo est.]
An agreeable companion on a journey is as good as a carriage.
It is a comfort to the miserable to have comrades in misfortune,
but it is a poor comfort after all.
It is a consolation to the wretched to have companions in misery.
We are in the same boat.
Joy is a partnership,
Grief weeps alone,
Many guests had Cana;
Gethsemane but one.
Ah, savage company; but in the church
With saints, and in the taverns with the gluttons.
