Better alone than in bad company

The man, they say, is known by the company he keeps. Such is the influence of company on man. In fact, the persons who are men’s friends and whose company he enjoys are the indicators of disposition, character and nature. However virtuous a man may be he can not remain virtuous if he sits in the company of vicious persons. Bad company is catchy because evil has always been more tempting than good. A rotten apple spoils the whole lot. This is equally true of a man of evil character. He spreads his evil influence whither he goes. It is therefore wisely said, “Better alone than in a bad company.”
