Ancient Chinese Idiom of the Day

近墨者黑

“One that nears an ink stick turns black.”

There goes why it is important to pick one's friend cautiously.  It saddens me to see a good-natured acquaintance of mine assume bad traits gradually from his/her friends.  Not going into details (because this particular case is in the Korean hemisphere of my life and would require more background explanation than the case itself), but I really hope all of my friends who see this would get the message.  *sigh*
