“Lysis” by Plato

Socrates questioned two young friends about the nature of friendship, but didn’t reach any conclusion at the end. The arguments he made were: the good can not be friends, because they are self-sufficient and have no need of others, and the evil can not be friends of the evil, because the evil are never at unity with one another or with themselves, likes can not be friends because they would have no need of each other.
