One's character gets transformed into good or bad depending upon his/her company. Noble company bestows noble feelings and bad company gives rise to evil traits. Your speech and conduct are based on your feelings. Form alone does not constitute a human being. A true human being is one who embodies good habits. You deserve to be called a human being only when you develop good feelings in you. Let your thoughts, words and deeds be suffused with sacred feelings.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Divine Discourse, 9 Oct 2002
