"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

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's 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
Wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friendships.
Happy moments? Praise God
Difficult moments? Seek God
Quiet moments? Worship God

Every moment? Thank God
If you see people without a smile today ... Give them one of yours.
