Now that's really something to think about. It's nice to have many friends but perhaps 2 or 3 sincere ones are enough. Or maybe, just 5 to match the number of fingers on one hand?
Judas Agrees To To Betray Jesus:
He consented and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present...
From William Shakespeare: Julius Caesar.
"Et Tu Brute? Then fall Caesar." (Act 3 Scene 1 Line 77), as Caesar sees Brutus stabs him.
"Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more," (Act 3 Scene 2 Line 22). Brutus says this as he justifies to the Romans why they killed Caesar.
Theme from a 1971 Song:
The Temptations: Smiling Faces Sometimes Album.
Lyrics are about backstabbing, where a friend plays another friend out.
Pretend to be your friend
Smiling faces show no traces
Of the evil that lurks within (can you dig it?)
Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof.
The truth is in the eye 'cause the eyes don't lie, amen.
That hides the snake (can you dig it, can you dig it?
Your enemy won't do you no harm, 'cause you'll know where he's comin' from
Don't let the handshake and the smile fool ya.
Take my advice I'm only tryin' to school ya.
(Selective lines from lyrics)
Barrett Strong / Norman Whitfield
