On friends and the conquering of sin

A man feels ashamed at having committed sin not because he owes a responsibility to his downcast morals, but because he is afraid of the thought of others discovering that he, usually such a man of form and dignity, is in fact capable of those lowly, pitiable, even frightening acts. Thus, friends are always important. And more especially, that they hold similar moral beliefs close to their hearts; so that whenever one loses his foothold on the slope of morality, he will always have a rope on to which he can cling and pull himself up.
