#EngQAs – Question #1: Can you help @dabydeby and explain the meaning of “A friend in need is a friend indeed”?
(22 August 2012)

Thank you for your participation Nur Alifah Annisa, Littleelephant Childdevelopmentcenter, Nass Razak, Wiwi Zizi Cassie Aktf, and Satyani Cendikia Kurniawani. :)

Thank you Wiwi Zizi Cassie Aktf for sharing this link  http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/a-friend-in-need.html. It provided various interpretations of the Proverb :)

I guess it all comes down to your own perception and interpretation of things.
In cynical situation, one would and could consider whether both parties are sincere.

However, in favorable circumstances, I would say the phrase is often interpreted as: A friend who is always there when you need help or when you are in trouble, is indeed a good and reliable friend. :)
