I was wondering how any of the following or similar quotes affect the life of your community.|
If you're a Confucianist:
"All within the four seas are brothers." (Confucius, Analects, 12:5)
The world is one family.
If you're a Buddhist:
Happy is the birth of the Buddha,
Happy is the preaching of the Sublime Dhamma,
Happy is the unity of the Sangha,
Happy is the striving of the united ones.
(Buddhist, Dhammapada - Sayings of the Buddha 3 (tr. J. Richards))
If you're a Jew:
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
(Kesuvim (Writings), Tehillim (Psalms))
If a Christian:
5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
If a Muslim:
O men! verily, we have created you of a male and a female; and we have divided you into peoples and tribes that ye might have knowledge one of
(The Qur'an (Rodwell tr), Sura 49 - The Apartments)
The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens.
