Neighbors

In great cities men are brought together by the desire of gain. They are not in a state of co-operation, but of isolation, as to the making of fortunes; and for all the rest they are careless of neighbors. Christianity teaches us to love our neighbor as ourselves; modern society acknowledges no neighbor.

Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) British politician and author.

Don't throw stones at your neighbors , if your own windows are glass.

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) American statesman, scientist and philosopher.

Love thy neighbor -- but don't pull down your hedge.

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) American statesman, scientist and philosopher.

Good fences make good neighbors.

It is easier to love humanity as a whole than to love one's neighbor.

Eric Hoffer (1902-1983) American philosopher and author.

It is your business when the wall next door catches fire.

Horace (BC 65-8) Latin lyric poet.

Your own safety is at stake when your neighbor's house is in flames.

To love our neighbor as ourselves is such a truth for regulating human society, that by that alone one might determine all the cases in social morality.
