Death unites as well as separates; it silences all paltry feeling.
Honore de Balzac
No exile at the South Pole or on the summit of Mont Blanc separates us more effectively from others than the practice of a hidden vice.
We are separated from God on two sides; the Fall separates us from Him, the Tree of Life separates Him from us.
A desire arises in the mind. It is satisfied immediately another comes. In the interval which separates two desires a perfect calm reigns in the mind. It is at this moment freed from all thought, love or hate. Complete peace equally reigns between two mental waves.
Interest does not tie nations together; it sometimes separates them. But sympathy and understanding does unite them.

The true definition of a snob is one who craves for what separates men rather than for what unites them.
Records were vitally important to the development of music and of all music cultures. With that being pushed by the wayside, I can't see an iPod uniting us. In fact it separates us, the streets are full of people bumping into lamp posts, listening to their own little universe, and there's no sharing in that.
