May you kindly explain me the following:

The friend who holds your hand and says the wrong thing is made of dearer stuff than the one who stays away.

Thanks

A friend in need is a friend indeed.

I understand that as follows:

When times are tough, you recognize your true friends as those who are there for you, even if they don't always say the right things. Or: it's better to show up, show support and try than to stay away (for fear of saying the wrong thing).

I concur with Lotje - and with the idea expressed!
