To be merged to Company? Nemo 14:32, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Better perhaps to merge that one into this, except it is a slightly distinct meaning, and Company is entirely unsourced. ~ Ningauble (talk) 17:30, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

UnsourcedEdit

I have turned Company into a disambiguation page, since it may refer to this meaning or to the business form. The unsourced quotes originally on that page are below. BD2412 T 21:59, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

  • A companion is but another self; wherefore it is an argument that a man is wicked if he keep company with the wicked.
    • Clement of Rome
    • The original text may be in Greek, unless it is misattributed.
  • It is certain that either wise bearing or ignorant carriage is caught as men take diseases one of another; therefore, let men take heed of their company.
  • Let them have ever so learned lectures of breeding, that which will most influence their carriage will be the company they converse with, and the fashion of those about them.
  • Nature has left every man a capacity of being agreeable, though not of shining in company; and there are a hundred men sufficiently qualified for both who, by a very few faults, that they might correct in half an hour, are not so much as tolerable.
  • The most agreeable of all companions is a simple, frank man, without any high pretensions to an oppressive greatness; one who loves life, and understands the use of it; obliging alike at all hours; above all, of a golden temper and steadfast as an anchor. For such an one we gladly exchange the greatest genius, the most brilliant wit, the profoundest thinker.
