Take care in choosing your associates


"One who has eyes in his head will be more careful and will examine the deeds of the person he wishes to befriend or to take as a counselor or to hire in his home, to a greater extent than he will examine his food and drink. Food and drink can only harm his body, but friends and the people he hires can destroy his soul and his wealth and his reputation."

(R' Moshe Chaim Luzzatto, Mesilat Yesharim, Chapter 23)

Have a great day,
