Quotes of the Day for 2 December 2000 – Fraternity and Brotherhood
When you write and implore me to come up with a set of quotes on a given subject it is not an intrusion - it is a great relief. I've got the quotes, choosing a theme for the day often resembles the terror of writer's block - the fear of a blank page. The most recent request was for quotes on Fraternity and Brotherhood, which I am pleased to fill right now.

- Francois FéNelon
For he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother tomorrow.
- William Shakespeare
There is a destiny that makes us brothers,
None goes his way alone;
All that we send into the lives of others
Comes back into our own.
- Edwin Markham
We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers.
- Martin Luther King Jr
