BOOKS AND FRIENDS SHOULD BE FEW, BUT GOOD

Friends are said to influence the character of a person. Similarly books too can affect the personality of an individual to a great extent. One is free to choose whatever he wants. There are good people and bad people. So one must take care to associate with good people if his character is to be refined. In a way, books also act as friends. If a per­son read a lot of books he will not be able to grasp anything worth­while. In the case of friends also, if he tries to entertain a large number of friends he will not be able to form true and firm friendship with any of them. Too many books also might not help him to learn anything from them. Friends should also be chosen on the basis of character.
