Lending
 
If you lend a person any money, it becomes lost for any purpose as one’s own. When you ask for it back again, you may find a friend made an enemy by your kindness. If you begin to press still further—either you must part with that which you have intrusted, or else you must lose that friend.
        1 Riley’s Plautus.—The Trinummus, Act IV. Scene 4.

For loan oft loses both itself and friend.
