This relates to 

יהושוע בן פרחיה אומר,
 עשה לך רב, וקנה לך חבר 
והוי דן את כל האדם לכף זכות

Glad it's meaningful for you Anonymous.

I meant to write something else, could have sworn I did...

There are 2 relevant approaches in commentaries-

1. Judge people favorably or you'll end up without friends and teachers. (Rav Chaim MiVelozin- Ruach HaChaim.)

2. Even tough you may have a small circle - maybe only one of each - of friends and teachers, remember there's a whole world out there and don't look arrogantly look down at others. (Rabbi SR Hirsch)
