English term or phrase: It's hard to soar with the eagles when you work with turkeys
Je n,arrive absolument pas à trouver un équivalent en français, sauf à proposer une traduction "faite maison". Il me semble bien qu'un expression similaire existe en français, mais je ne trouve rien...
Merci d'avance à tous !
