Happiness ⧸ Verse 207

He who walks in the company of fools has to grieve for a long time. Association with fools is ever painful, as living with an enemy; association with the wise is a pleasure, as living with relatives.
English translation by Daw Mya Tin. Edited by Editorial Committee, Burma Tipitaka Association Rangoon, Burma, 1986. For free distribution only, as a gift of dhamma.
