Peace is not won by those who fiercely guard their differences, but by those who with open minds and hearts seek out connections.
~ Katherine Paterson
We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.
~ Herman Melville
We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep.
~ William James
