I have a dream that one day the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.
What can I tell you, son of mine? I could tell you of heartbreak, hatred blind, I could tell of crimes that shame mankind, Of brutal wrong and deeds malign, Of rape and murder, son of mine; But I'll tell instead of brave and fine When lives of black and white entwine, And men in Brotherhood combine This would I tell you, son of mine.Kathleen Jean Mary Ruska
Enough of good there is in the lowest estate to sweeten life; enough of evil in the highest to check presumption; enough there is of both in all estates, to bind us in compassionate Brotherhood, to teach us impressively that we are of one dying and one immortal family.henry giles
The fact is that the truth of harmony and human Brotherhood derives not from an absorbed trance but from an awakened prajñâ or wisdom; and its validity depends not on any dramatic ecstatic visions but it belongs to man’s (…) natural reason unspoilt by theologies of exclusiveness.ram swarup
The Muslim Brotherhood is a global movement whose members cooperate with each other throughout the world, based on the same religious worldview - the spread of Islam, until it rules the world.mahdi akef
What is patriotism but love of the good things we ate in our childhood? I have said elsewhere that the loyalty to Uncle Sam is the loyalty to doughnuts and ham and sweet potatoes and the loyalty to the German Vaterland is the loyalty to Pfannkuchen and Christmas Stollen. As for international understanding, I feel that macaroni has done more for our appreciation of Italy than Mussolini... in food, as in death, we feel the essential Brotherhood of mankind.lin yutang
Both the cow-woman and the scum-woman are well within range of the comprehension of the Bawling Brotherhood, but the new woman is a little above him, and he never thought of looking up to where she has been sitting apart in silent contemplation all these years.

Sin duda la cercan|a de la muerte y la fraternidad de las armas producen, en todos los tiempos y en todos los pa|ses, una atmo sfera propicia a lo extraordinario, a todo aquello que sobrepasa la condicio n humana y rompe el c|rculo de soledad que rodea a cada hombre. No doubt the nearness of death and the Brotherhood of men-at-wars, at whatever time and in whatever country, always produce an atmosphere favorable to the extraordinary, to all that rises above the human condition and breaks the circle of solitude that surrounds each one of us.Octavio Paz
"What is the Unpardonable Sin?" asked the lime-burner; and then he shrank farther from his companion, trembling lest his question should be answered. "It is a sin that grew within my own breast," replied Ethan Brand, standing erect with a pride that distinguishes all enthusiasts of his stamp. "A sin that grew nowhere else! The sin of an intellect that triumphed over the sense of Brotherhood with man and reverence for God, and sacrificed everything to its own mighty claims!Nathaniel Hawthorne
For thousands of years humankind's finest minds have been struggling with the theoretical problem of finding the forms that would give peoples the possibility, without the greatest of torment, without internecine strife, of living side by side in friendship and Brotherhood. Practically speaking, the first step in this direction is only being taken now, today.mikhail kalinin
My religion is truth, love and service to God and humanity. Every religion that has come into the world has brought the message of love and Brotherhood. Those who are indifferent to the welfare of their fellowmen, whose hearts are empty of love, they do not know the meaning of religion.abdul ghaffar khan
It is for man to establish the reign of liberty in the midst of the world of the given. To gain the supreme victory, it is necessary, for one thing, that by and through their natural differentiation men and women unequivocally affirm their Brotherhood.
I stand by my kind; and I thank God for the temptations that have brought me into sympathy with them, as I do for the "love that urges me to efforts for their good. I hail the great Brotherhood of trial and temptation in the name of humanity, and give them assurance that from the Divine Man, and some, at least, of His disciples, there goes out to them a flood of sympathy that would fain sweep them up to the firm footing of the rock of safety.
The foundation upon which our nation stands is much richer and firmer than the sympathies that may occasionally divide us. And we never know this more truly than in Christmas time. In good times or in bad, under clear skies or under the shadow of uncertainty, the Christmas message is the imperishable one of joy, hope and Brotherhood.Ferdinand Edralin Marcos
Almost his first words were, "Well, let us go and talk with the poets!" In vain I assured this untamed poet that the "Bards of San Francisco Bay," whom he had so naively saluted, had taken the vows of neither Brotherhood nor sisterhood; that they feasted at no common board; flocked not; discoursed with no beaded rills; neither did their skilled hands sweep any strings whatever, and he must, therefore, listen in vain for the seraphic song.joaquin miller
If you have nothing of the spirit of prayer, nothing of the love of the Brotherhood, nothing of mortifying the spirit of the world, nothing of growth in grace, of cordial, habitual, persevering obedience to the Divine commands, how can it be that you have been brought nigh by the blood of Christ?gardiner spring
Go gather by the humming sea Some twisted, echo-harboring shell, And to its lips thy story tell, And they thy comforters will be, rewarding in melodious guile fretful words a little while, Till they shall singing fade in ruth And dies a pearly Brotherhood; For words alone are certain good: Sin, then, for this is also sooth.
"I place my hope not on government, not on political parties, but on faith in the power of the religion of Jesus Christ to conquer all prejudices , to break down all walls of separation, and to weld together men of all races in one great Brotherhood ".
Peace for Israel means security, and we must stand with all our might to protect its right to exist, its territorial integrity. I see Israel as one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done, how desert land can be transformed into an oasis of Brotherhood and democracy. Peace for Israel means security and that security must be a reality.
God of our fathers, you chose Abraham and his descendants to bring your Name to the Nations: we are deeply saddened by the behaviour of those who in the course of history have caused these children of yours to suffer, and asking your forgiveness we wish to commit ourselves to genuine Brotherhood with the people of the Covenant.
The code of the Bourgeoisie ... is different from the Feudal code of the past, of the knightly classes, and of Chivalry; it is different from the Democratic code of the future of Brotherhood and of equality; it is the code of the Commercial age and its distinctive watchword is property. The Respectability of today is the respectability of property. There is nothing so respectable as being well-off.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of Brotherhood.
To set the cause above renown, to love the game beyond the prize. To honor while you strike him down, the foe that comes with fearless eyes. To count the life of battle good and dear the land that gave you birth, and dearer yet the Brotherhood that binds the brave of all the earth.
