One more thing when quality prevails over quantity... The same is with love, sir.

I totally agree. One can sense vibes from one's true friends - and such friends can't be many. And the really true ones are those who you remember after their demise and the converse too - but then you won't be there to feel the love and happiness they had given you.

I am not sure that weighing them is any less detached than counting them.

But which balance and what weights, to weigh them?

The "weighted" in the quote means "valued".

If ever weighed, friends should not be weighted unfairly or else the additional weight will burden the friendship.
