It is better to be alone than in bad company.

George Washington

There are times when you realize that those around you cost you dearly, prompt the worse in you.  Bad company.

A culture at its worse and most distorted can bring bad company as a routine matter, a daily event – in all its communications and images.  Bad company.

Better to seek yourself.  For there is God.  Good company.  Better to be sequestered, in solitude.  Good company.

In being alone with self and God, one finds the best company, a bridge to eternal reality, good neighbors, good friends, the nature to discern and contemplate.
