Pope Agapet II, aka Pope Agapetus II NULL

Italian Pope

"When we live habitually with the wicked, we become necessarily either their victim or their disciple; when we associate, on the contrary, with virtuous men, we form ourselves in imitation of their virtues, or, at least, lose every day something of our faults."

"A frequent intercourse and intimate connection between two persons make them so like, that not only their dispositions are moulded like each other, but their very face and tone of voice contract a certain analogy."

"To abandon yourself to rage is often to bring upon yourself the fault of another."
