You cannot contribute anything to the ideal condition of mind and heart known as Brotherhood, however much you preach, posture, or agree, unless you live it.  ~Faith Baldwin

The moment we break faith with one another, the sea engulfs us and the light goes out.  ~James Baldwin

In this hour of his regeneration-day, his genius gave his heart the fiery baptism of a love, which clasped all men and all creatures into its flames. There are certain precious minutes of rapture—ah, why not years?—when an inexpressible love towards all human creatures flows through thy whole life, and opens thy arms softly to every brother. ~Jean Paul Friedrich Richter, Hesperus, or Forty-Five Dog-Post-Days: A Biography, translated from German by Charles T. Brooks, 1865

In union there is strength.  ~Aesop

And one heart seems to beat for all mankind!

Brooks, 1865

We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers.  ~Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength to Love, 1963

Where beats a heart within a human breast,
There be Thou present, and Thy power adored!
And oh! since all are doom'd one common race
To run, and one eternal goal to reach,
May Thy prime attribute each bosom warm
With tender sympathy and truth; may man
Be link'd to man in fellowship of soul,
Till one vast chain of Love embrace the world!
~Robert Montgomery, "A Universal Prayer," A Universal Prayer; Death; A Vision of Heaven; and A Vision of Hell; &c. &c., 1829

Cooperation is the thorough conviction that nobody can get there unless everybody gets there.  ~Virginia Burden, The Process of Intuition

We have now finished our exposition of the Laws of Nationalities. It only remains for us to consider as briefly as possible how to exploit them in the interests of Reason and Love.... If Nationalism is bad, Individualism is worse.... "To feel living within me," [Amiel] cries, "all the categories in which humanity scatters itself is a joy." In truth he felt none of them. You cannot be anything if you want to be everything. But if you are content to be something, you may by analogy be many things. To feel like the French patriot you must love not France but England. The brotherhood of the peoples is not barred by the plurality of patriotisms. It takes two men to make one brother. Internationalism, so far, then, from being the antithesis of Nationalism, actually requires nations to interrelate. ~Israel Zangwill, The Principle of Nationalities, 1917

Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable.  ~Kenyan Proverb

I have often noticed that when chickens quit quarreling over their food they often find that there is enough for all of them.  I wonder if it might not be the same with the human race.  ~Don Marquis
