@ShashiTharoor तन्मित्रम् यत्र विश्वासः
(Mahabharata, Shanti Parva 318-21-13)

A friend is a friend only when he is faithful and trustworthy.

@ShashiTharoor अति स्नेहः पाप शंकी
(Abhignana Shakuntalam)

Friendship beyond limits should be ominous of some guilt to take place ahead.

@ShashiTharoor न कश्चित् कस्याचीन् मित्रं न कश्चित् कस्याचिन् रिपुः
कारणेन हि जायन्ते मित्राणि रिपावस् तथा
(सुभाषित रत्न भंडागार)
