Poem by Thomas Urquhart

Epigrams. The First Booke. 6. That the fellowship of vertuous, or vicious people, contributes much to the bettering, or depraving of the mind

That he must needs be bad, there is some likenesse, 
	Who to lewd company is much affected; 
For it is the beginning of a sicknesse 
	Tassociat with him, that is infected: 
Would you be good then, haunt the conversation 
Of them, whose actions merit estimation.
