This article is on Swami Vivekananda‘s quotes on evil company.
- Avoid evil company, because the scars of old wounds are in you, and evil company is just the thing that is necessary to call them out.[Source]
- Evil company is always to be shunned, because it leads to lust and anger, illusion, forgetfulness of the goal, destruction of the will (lack of perseverance), and destruction of everything. These disturbances may at first be like ripples, but evil company at last makes them like the sea.[Source]
- Give up all evil company.[Source]
- Those who want to go to the highest, must avoid all company, good or bad.[Source]
