The Three Sorts Of Friends (Fragment) - Poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Though friendships differ endless in degree ,
The sorts , methinks, may be reduced to three.
Ac quaintance many, and Con quaintance few;
But for In quaintance I know only two--
The friend I've mourned with, and the maid I woo!
