A light has dawned for me: I need companions, living ones, not dead companions and corpses which I carry with me wherever I wish. But I need living companions who follow me because they want to follow themselves- and who want to go where I want to go.
If thou wishest to get rid of thy evil propensities, thou must keep far from evil companions.
Seneca the Younger

Marvin J. Ashton
Beyond ensuring that people everywhere have access to mental health, virtual digital assistants can act as learning companions, using their insight into what motivates and inspires you, to help you study and learn. In this way, AI could be used to level the playing field in education and help narrow socio-economic gaps around the world.

Faith without works is like a bird without wings; though she may hop with her companions on earth, yet she will never fly with them to heaven.
It has been ordained that there be summer and winter, abundance and dearth, virtue and vice, and all such opposites for the harmony of the whole, and (Zeus) has given each of us a body, property, and companions.
How tranquil is a coral tomb, and may the heavens grant that my companions and I be buried in no other!
Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
The hard and stiff are death's companions. The soft and weak are life's companions.
Of the twelve companions of Thorin, ten remained. Fili and Kili had fallen defending him with shield and body, for he was their mother’s elder brother.
