SEE DORSON: BUYING THE WIND No. 1809

If you travel with wolves, you've got to howl with them. When in Rome do as the Romans do; If you travel in fast company, you've got to keep step or drop out; Do as the rest do.  p.142

 

I have heard this provrb from my mother and other people since childhood.
