Sirach 22:13
Don’t talk a lot with fools, and don’t go to the unintelligent. Be on guard against them so that you don’t have trouble and don’t get dirty when they shake themselves off. Stay away from them and you will find rest, and their senselessness won’t make you weary.
The mourning for the dead is seven days: but for a fool and an ungodly man all the days of their life.
Don't visit stupid people or spend a lot of time talking with them. Avoid them; then they can't contaminate you, and you can live in peace without being troubled or worn down by their foolishness.
