There is a common phrase Birds of a Feather Flock together.

If I hang out with a group of Nuns, does that make me a nun?
No. But they may have a positive influence of my behavior.

If I hang out with a bunch of Low life drug addicts, or Prostitutes, would I become one?
I mean, it is possible but if I don't their influence may make me lower my own Moral standard.

So what I am getting at is Do birds of a Feather Flock together?

It's about not letting anything hold you back!

    There is some truth to that. Most people hang with like minded people(even if they share some different views).

    It is just one of those succinct proverbial phrases that is not meant to be a cast-in-stone rule. It would sound odd and cumbersome if we changed the wording to "Generally speaking but notwithstanding any bias or prejudicial influence, birds of a feather flock together. ;)

    I don't know, but that Painting is Awesome!
    I think like hangs out with like - thus birds of a feather etc but it depends on the individual whether your moral standards change from those around you. I think I could surround myself with your paintings but I'd never paint that well :) Nice job btw
