4. Give the gist of the following remarks (by Bacon), arranging your précis in paragraphs to make the argument more easily perceived:

It is a miserable solitude to want true friends, without whom the world is but a wilderness. A principal fruit of friendship is the ease and discharge of the fullness and swellings of the heart. We know diseases of stoppings and suffocations are the most dangerous in the body; and it is not much otherwise with the mind. No receipt openeth the heart but a true friend, to whom you may impart griefs, joys, fears, hopes, and whatsoever lieth upon the heart to oppress it. It is a strange thing to observe how high a rate great monarchs do set upon this fruit of friendship whereof we speak so great as they purchase it many times at the hazard of their own safety. For princes cannot gather this fruit, except they raise some persons to be, as it were, companions, and almost equals to themselves; which many times sorteth to inconvenience. The parable of Pythagoras is dark but true-Eat not the heart. Certainly, those that want friends to open themselves unto are cannibals of their own hearts. This communicating of a man's self to his friend redoubleth joys, and cutteth grief in halves; for there is no man that imparteth his joys to his friend but he joyeth the more, and no man that imparteth his griefs but he grieveth the less. The second fruit of friendship is healthful for the understanding, as the first is for the affections. Friendship maketh daylight in the understanding out of darkness and confusion of thoughts. Whosoever hath his mind fraught with many thoughts, his wits do clarify in discoursing with another; he marshalleth his thoughts more orderly; he seeth how they look when they are turned into words; he waxeth wiser than himself, and that more by an hour's discourse than by a day's meditation. Add now, to make this second fruit of friendship complete, that other point which lieth more open, and falleth within vulgar observation-faithful counsel from a friend. There is as much difference between the counsel that a friend giveth and that a man giveth himself as there is between the counsel of a friend and of a flatterer. For there is no such flatterer as a man's self; and there is no such remedy against flattery of a man's self as the liberty of a friend.
