: what does it meaning in turkish?"a person is known by the company keeps"

I dont know Turkish but the phrase means that the styles and behaviors of the people you choose to associate yourself with can influence you and the perception that people around you have of you.

Sort of an offshoot of "Birds of a feather flock together".
