Sanskrit Subhashitas 79

79. सज्जना

अकुर्वन्तोऽपि पापानि शुचय: पापसंश्रयात्।
परपापैर्विनश्यन्ति मत्स्या नागह्रदे यथा॥

Innocent persons, though they may not commit any sinful acts, are punished as a consequence of their mere association with evil-doers. Even so the fishes in a serpent-pond are destroyed by the snake destroyers along with the snakes.
