My enemies move heaven and earth to lower me in the estimation of others. My friends leave no stone unturned to set them at naught. Alas, both the parties are in fault. They are ignorant of the truth that union is the root and division is the bough. As both of them are of capital importance in maintaining the creation so our friendship and enmity are of true significance to the truth that the One is positive as well as negative.
