On Neighbors

  • “It's a recession when your neighbor loses his job; it's a depression when you lose yours”, Harry Truman
  • “Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough” Abraham Lincoln
  • “A bad neighbor is a misfortune, as much as a good one is a great blessing.” Hesiod
  • “The good neighbor looks beyond the external accidents and discerns those inner qualities that make all men human and, therefore, brothers.” Martin Luther King
  • “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Matthew 22:37-40
