“The most important thing you can do is find someone good to spend your life with.…  And if you can’t find one person, then only spend time with people you can learn from.  A person who inspires you to be a better person.  I ask myself when I am with someone, ‘Does this person inspire me to be a better person’.  Some people might be good, but just not good for you.  So it’s a relative thing.” -James Altucher
