Man is known by his deeds he keeps is a very old and well-known proverb. It means that any person's reputation depends upon his/hers association or friends he has. Though its also said that a man is known by his deeds, yet at times the good deeds are marred by bad company. Moreover, if a person is good but his company is bad, then a time comes when the bad company starts influencing the good deeds.
Good company is also important for the image of a person in a society. If a person has a bad company of bad friends, the people around him will avoid him because of the image which is created by the bad company. On the other hand people always like themselves and their children to intract with good people. If someone is good and has good company, others will always welcome him and will like to be friends.
There are numerous examples around us and in the history which proves this point. The Prophet Muhammad(S.A.W) is the biggest example.

He was a beacon for the humanity and the people would admire him for his deeds and anyone in his company was recognised in good words. Similarly, our poet, The Poet Of The East, his associates and friends are even known and remembered today.In the present times also our parents want us to have a good company, we should spend time with good friends and interact with good people. It just clears the point that man is really known by the Company He Keeps. You have asked a beautiful question. Not that the quotation is not known to anyone but the fact that you want it to be elaborated in depth.

General interpretation is that birds of a feather flock together. But I feel that the human mind is the most unstable entity created by God. It gets moulded by situations and environment. Our company, be it parents, friends, colleagues etc all influence us and our mind gets moulded like that. We must have heard our parents instructing us during our childhood to become friends with the most studious child in the class so that we take those traits and our mind gets moulded to become studious.

I have personal experience in life, when I was with "regular" people, I used to do "regular" stuff like loose talk, politics, some studies, bickering etc etc. But when I came in contact with friends who had a "saintly" outlook in life, I felt that I changed and started retrospectively introspecting my life and my actions in the past and how they negatively affected me and my loved ones. I was suggested to read a beautiful book by a saint. I am reading this book slowly tendering to each word and feeling of this saint.
