"A friend in need is a friend indeed." Apparently, there are two ways to interprete this phrase. How do you interprete it?

Nobody could interprete this actually. "Interprete" isn't a word yet. But I shall tell you how I interpret it anyway, though it might not be what you want. :D I think that once you realize that someone needs something....that's when you've lowered yourself and began thinking about someone else. That is a friendship to me....when you put one above yourself and love. (Did you know that love could be the right answer to everything?! Hehe!)

a friend that is needy is a real friend? I don't get it ... or it could be that a friend that is there in a time of need is a real friend...

Mer! lol. INTERPRET.
That's interesting Ivory. The first time I read it, I interpreted it that if someone can be honest enough with you to tell you when they are in need, then you know that they are indeed a friend. But I don't think that's what it's saying actually. I think Ivory's interpretation is more right. It's like this other quote: "You can't love someone until you know what they need."
