Better Alone than in a Bad Company
Just as the dirt spoils your clothes, likewise a bad company spoils your character. If a person falls into a bad company, he is deprived of the best things of life. In a bad company, the whole outlook of person changes. The bad company may lead a person to vices like gambling, smoking, stealing, etc. If a student falls into bad company, he loses interest in studies, starts cutting his classes and begins to tell lies to shield himself. It is a well-known saying that a person is known from the company he keeps. It is better to be alone than to move in a bad company. One can thus be away from bad things. It is, therefore, desirable that if one cannot find a good company, he should remain alone and fulfil his aim in life.
