COMPANIONS
[ Also see Companionship Company Friends Visitors ]

We should ever have it fixed in our memories that, by the character of those whom we choose for our friends, our own is likely to be formed, and will certainly be judged by the world. We ought, therefore, to be slow and cautious in contracting intimacy; but when a virtuous friendship is once established, we must ever consider it a sacred engagement.
      - Hugh Blair

We have been born to associate with our fellow-men, and to join in community with the human race.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

A companion is but another self; wherefore it is an argument that a man is wicked if he keep company with the wicked.
      - Pope Clement I (Clemens Romanus) (Saint Clement of Alexandria)

Wicked companions invite us to hell.
      - Henry Fielding

Our companions please us less from the charms we find in their conversation than from those they find in ours.
      - Sir Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke, Lord Brooke

There are like to be short graces where the devil plays host.
      - Charles Lamb (used pseudonym Elia)

The freer you feel yourself in the presence of another, the more free is he.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

The most agreeable of all companions is a simple, frank man, without any high pretensions to an oppressive greatness; one who loves life, and understands the use of it; obliging alike at all hours; above all, of a golden temper and steadfast as an anchor. For such an one we gladly exchange the greatest genius, the most brilliant wit, the profoundest thinker.
      - Ephraim Gotthold Lessing

Let them have ever so learned lectures of breeding, that which will most influence their carriage will be the company they converse with, and the fashion of those about them.
      - John Locke (1)

Company, villainous company, hath been the spoil of me.
      - William Shakespeare

A pleasant companion is as good as a coach.
      - Jonathan Swift
