It Is Better To Be Alone, Than In The Wrong Company
Tell me who your best friends are, and I will tell you who you are.
If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl.
But, if you associate with eagles,
you will learn how to soar to great heights.
"A mirror reflects a man's face,
but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses."
The simple but true fact of life
is that you become like those with whom you closely associate - for the good
and the bad.
The less you associate with some people,
the more your life will improve.
Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others,
it increases your mediocrity.
An important attribute in successful people is their impatience
with negative thinking and negative acting people.
As you grow, your associates will change.
Some of your friends will not want you to go on.
They will want you to stay where they are.
Friends that don't help you climb will want you to crawl.
Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream.
Those that don't increase you, will eventually decrease you.
Consider this:
* Never receive counsel from unproductive people.
* Never discuss your problems with someone
incapable of contributing to the solution,
because those who never succeed
themselves are always first to tell you how.
Not everyone has a right to speak into your life.
You are certain to get the worst of the bargain
when you exchange ideas with the wrong person.
* Don't follow anyone who are not going anywhere.
With some people you spend an evening:
with others you invest it.
* Be careful where you stop to inquire for directions
along the road of life.
* Wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friendships.

Awesome, I love it! Thanks so much for adding these wonderful words of wisdom Courtier!

I have only a few friends but they are the truest of friends and that is enough for me. I don't waste my time with negative people anymore and try to stay clear from them at all costs. It's all about self preservation. Like the old saying goes.....misery loves company and that is exactly what you'll invite into your life if you allow negative people in. I know from personal experience!
