I remember reading a story about two friends walking along in the forest, suddenly they  saw  a black bear, both were terrified, one of them quickly climbed  the nearest  tree. The other one not knowing how to save himself decided to lie down on the  ground and  pretend he was  dead. He had heard that bears do not eat dead people. The bear came and sniffed him, thinking the man was dead the bear went away.

While this was happening the man on the tree,  was watching, when the bear left he quickly came down and asked, “What did the bear whisper in your ears?”

The friend realized the man he thought was his friend, in reality wasn’t because a friend wouldn’t leave a friend in the lurch. In reply to his friend’s question he said the bear told him, “A friend in need is a friend indeed.”
