Fellowship

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) American black leader.

Nothing is more repugnant to me than brotherly feelings grounded in the common baseness people see in one another.

Milan Kundera (1929-?) Czech writer.

I feel that the Godhead is broken up like the bread at the Supper, and that we are the pieces. Hence this infinite fraternity of feeling.

Herman Melville (1819-1891) American writer.

One can be a brother only in something. Where there is no tie that binds men, men are not united but merely lined up.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944) French aviator and writer.

We must love one another, yes, yes, that's all true enough, but nothing says we have to like each other. It may be the very recognition of all men as our brothers that accounts for the sibling rivalry, and even enmity, we have toward so many of them.

Peter de Vries (1910-1993) American editor and novelist.
