George WashingtonGeorge Washington, our first President said, “Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.”

Do we strive to associate with quality people or do we settle for people who don’t have ethics, morals, principles and integrity? 

Maybe we should evaluate where we stand. What do you think?

  1. I too heard those words from my mom growing up. I also heard, “If you lie down with dogs you get up smelling like dogs”. So my girls heard these sayings all through their growing up years.
    Thanks for your comment.

  2. My mom used to say, “You are the company you keep.” So true. I now tell my daughter the same thing. 🙂
