    Caution Regarding Associates

  1. "Whoever touches pitch will be defiled,and whoever associates with a proud man will become like him."
  2. "Do not lift a weight beyond your strength,nor associate with a man mightier and richer than you.How can the clay pot associate with the iron kettle?The pot will strike against it, and will itself be broken."
  3. "A rich man does wrong, and he even adds reproaches;a poor man suffers wrong, and he must add apologies."
