Quotes of the Day for 20 May 2001 – Community

     - Henrik Ibsen

Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.
     - Anthony J. D'Angelo

What people say behind your back is your standing in the community.
     - Edgar Watson Howe

Water, everywhere over the earth, flows to join together. A single natural law controls it. Each human is a member of a community and should work within it.
     - The I Ching

The community stagnates without the impulse of the individual. The impulse dies away without the sympathy of the community.
     - William James, 1842 - 1910
