Walk with the wise and become wise. (The Bible)

Someone wrote, “Do you want to be wise? Choose wise friends.” “Associate yourself with people of good quality, for it is better to be alone than in bad company” (Booker T. Washington). Another: “You become like the five people you spend the most time with.” Choose carefully. Wisdom is the ability to apply knowledge properly. Seek it and practice it always.

Be friends with those who are wise, and you will become wise. Choose fools to be your friends, and you will have trouble (Proverbs 13:20, Everyday Reading Bible).
