A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed-Paragraph It is necessary for man to distinguish between the friends who are true and who are not. Man needs friends to exchange his views and thoughts, hopes and desires sorrows and joys.
Firstly, is it 'a friend in need is a friend indeed' or 'a friend in need is a friend in deed'? Secondly, is it 'a friend (when you are) in need' or 'a friend (who is) in need'? If the former, then the phrase means: 'someone who helps you when you are in need is a true friend'.
