Quote of the Day
Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first they have to understand that their neighbour is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions.
Don't ever criticize yourself. Don't go around all day long thinking, 'I'm unattractive, I'm slow, I'm not as smart as my brother.' God wasn't having a bad day when he made you... If you don't love yourself in the right way, you can't love your neighbour. You can't be as good as you are supposed to be.

Being a good neighbour is about compassion, which is as warm-blooded as justice is cool-headed.
A lie does not consist in the indirect position of words, but in the desire and intention, by false speaking, to deceive and injure your neighbour.

I saw six men kicking and punching the mother-in-law. My neighbour said 'Are you going to help?' I said 'No, six should be enough.'
That I have the right to express myself freely at all times in all circumstances entails the idea that free speech is a 'basic human right' possessed by each individual, and, as such, trumps the interests of the society or group, including my neighbour.
Salary stories are intrusive. Do you ask your neighbour what they earn for their job?
Whenever our neighbour's house is on fire, it cannot be amiss for the engines to play a little on our own.
We make our friends; we make our enemies; but God makes our next door neighbour.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
My neighbour asked if he could use my lawnmower and I told him of course he could, so long as he didn't take it out of my garden.
Love of our neighbour, then, has just the same respect to, is no more distant from, self-love, than hatred of our neighbour, or than love or hatred of anything else.
You should not quarrel with your neighbour, for he will remain where he is, but your high handedness will become the talk of the people.
In laughter we always find an unavowed intention to humiliate and consequently to correct our neighbour.
I think that, to a lot of people, they don't like my brand of whatever I do. And I think that people - the ones that like me, at least - see me as their brother or their older uncle or their friend or their next door neighbour. I am the quintessential boy next door; I feel that way.

When your neighbour's house is on fire, you should help with a bucket of water.
If you injure your neighbour, better not do it by halves.
