At the bottom of enmity between strangers lies indifference.
People say New Yorkers can't get along. Not true. I saw two New Yorkers, complete strangers, sharing a cab. One guy took the tires and the radio; the other guy took the engine.
I don't know if I'll ever get used to the idea that strangers know who I am. I don't know if I want to.
I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.
One of the things that I miss about Canada is that even the strangers, you have an immediate rapport, there's just an understanding that we're all good people, let's be nice to each other. And Kiwis have that. I find the Kiwis have that.
Our very lives depend on the ethics of strangers, and most of us are always strangers to other people.

Sisters, when about their work, should not put on clothing which would make them look like images to frighten the crows from the corn. It is more gratifying to their husbands and children to see them in a becoming, well-fitting, attire, than it can be to merely visitors or strangers.
Ellen G. White

Admiration and familiarity are strangers.
I've lost count of the number of times that I've been approached by strangers wanting to tell me that they think I'm brave or inspirational, and this was long before my work had any kind of public profile.
Sometimes you have to get to know someone really well to realize you're really strangers.
Mary Tyler Moore
