Democritus on Friendship

Democritus, fragment 98 (tr. Kathleen Freeman):
The friendship of one intelligent man is better than that of all the unintelligent.

ἑνὸς φιλίη ξυνετοῦ κρέσσων ἀξυνέτων πάντων.
For parallels see M. Marcovich, Heraclitus: Greek Text with a Short Commentary. Editio Maior (Merida: The Los Andes University Press, 1967), pp. 515-518 (on Heraclitus, fragment 49).
