But as importantly, it lies in the fact that we’ve got citizens from all walks of life, all political parties, that are willing to say, I want to love my neighbor. I want to make somebody’s life just a little bit better.

So much blood has been shed by the Church because of an omission from the Gospel: вЂњYe shall be indifferent as to what your neighbor’s religion is.вЂќ Not merely tolerant of it, but indifferent to it.

When it comes to the environment and global warming from emissions, it has to be dealt with in one of two ways – preemptive regulations, which I don’t agree with, or with private property principles. Nobody has the right to pollute their neighbors’ air or water or land.
I hate organized religion. I think you have to love thy neighbor as thyself. I think you have to pick your own God and be true to him. I always say ‘him’ rather than ‘her.’ Maybe it’s because of my generation, but I don’t like the idea of a female God. I see God as a benevolent male.

You’d think I’d asked her to drown the neighbor’s cat.” Admittedly, drowning the neighbor’s cat didn’t really clue me in as much as I would’ve liked. “So, she was angry?” He blinked back to me and stared. Like a long time.

Pablito, the Bible was meant to be a bridge, not a wedge. It’s the greatest love story ever told, about God’s enduring and unconditional love for his creation–love beyond all reason.

There is a tremendous acceleration and many of us will be moving dimensionally – through that sixth, seventh, dimensional element that will be here for those of us who are ready to engage with our galactic and universal neighbors.

I want Israel to live in peace with its neighbors and in peace with itself.
I always disliked that anytime you had gays represented in – and there were some exceptions, certainly – but represented in popular fiction, they were usually the goofy neighbor next door, you know?

I play drums, and I’d recommend it to anyone, except maybe your neighbors. It’s great exercise – physical, mental, emotional, and social. It takes deep concentration but also activates concentration. If you’re doing it right, it’s always just a little harder than what you can actually pull off.

When I save, I lay something aside for future need. If I sense God’s leading, I will give it away to meet greater needs.

You can be a good neighbor only if you have good neighbors.

Our skin is provided as adequately as theirs with endurance against the assaults of the weather: witness so many nations who have not yet tried the use of any clothes. Our ancient Gauls wore hardly any clothes; nor do the Irish, our neighbors, under so cold a sky.
And what, incidentally, do you think integrity is? The ability not to pick a watch out of your neighbor’s pocket? No, it’s not as easy as that.

There’s a power that movies and music has, that can move you and motivate you to look at your neighbor in a slightly more respectful way, and look at cultures in a more inclusive way.
It is worth the while to live respectably unto ourselves.

There is no tyranny in the world more hateful than that of ideas. Ideas bring ideophobia, and the consequence is that people begin to persecute their neighbors in the name of ideas.

The most effectual way to be deceived is to believe oneself more cunning than one’s neighbors.
The underlying message of the Neighborhood is that if somebody cares about you, it’s possible that you’ll care about others. ‘You are special, and so is your neighbor’ – that part is essential: that you’re not the only special person in the world. The person you happen to be with at the moment is loved, too.
Nothing aids which may not also injure us.
Fire serves us well, but he who plots to burn

His neighbor’s roof arms his hands with fire.

When it comes down to it, @Taskrabbit is about neighbors connecting with neighbors
Whether [people] run their own business, work for a business, go out there, pay their taxes and see the money wasted, fed up with the money going to the next door neighbor sitting permanently on out of work benefits. There needs to be a coalition of change.

If a strong man has not in him the lift toward lofty things, his strength makes him only a curse to himself and his neighbor.
King Drowden has given his men instructions to infiltrate the town, bribe townspeople for the secrets of their neighbors, steal the neighborsвЂ™ hidden treasures. Much more subtle than DrowdenвЂ™s usual smash and burn technique. We do hope Drowden isnвЂ™t growing a brain.
You know what truth is? […] It’s some crazy thing my neighbor believes. If I want to make friends with him, I ask him what he believes. He tells me, and I say, “Yeah, yeah – ain’t it the truth?
It is no accident that I mention our American friends, as they are always influencing our relations with our neighbors either directly or behind the scenes. Sometimes you don’t even know who to talk to – the governments of certain countries or directly to their American patrons.
Paramore will be the neighbor that comes over for tea and never leaves.
Have you forgotten when those towers fell, we had neighbors still inside. And you say we shouldn’t worry about Bin Laden, have you forgotten?

Everybody’s got to do something… I’d been on my own since an early age and I thought I better find something to do to buy biscuits and stuff. From high school onwards I was earning my way with photography, one way or another, working in darkrooms and taking pictures of weddings, neighbors’ children and so on.
I will govern my life and thoughts as if the whole world were to see the one and read the other, for what does it signify to make anything a secret to my neighbor, when to God, who is the searcher of our hearts, all our privacies are open?
I believe my friends and neighbors there are misguided. I think they are not going to get what they hoped for. But they feel betrayed by the Democratic and Republican establishment.

I don’t want to wake up at 60 and have to call the neighbor who’s 12 to help me with my computer.
Our earnest prayer is that God will graciously vouchsafe prosperity, happiness, and peace to all our neighbors, and like blessings to all the peoples and powers of the earth

We are made for one another, and each is to be a supply to his neighbor.
Find a partner, commit to taking action, and hold each other accountable. Helping our planet is not a one-person or one-country job; we need to be good partners and good neighbors to one another. Routine, measurable, and collective actions both small and large will make an impact.

In the first place, our faith ought to lay hold on Christ as God and man in that nature by which He has been made our neighbor, kinsman, and brother.
Die, very good, but do not make others die. Suicides like the one which is about to take place here are sublime, but suicide is restricted, and does not allow of extension; and so soon as it affects your neighbors, suicide becomes murder.
When a man begins to perceive the love of God in all its richness, he begins also to love his neighbor with spiritual perception. This is the love of which all the scriptures speak.

When men succeed, even their neighbors think them wise.
Laws which can be broken without any wrong to one’s neighbor are a laughing-stock; and such laws, instead of restraining the appetites and lusts of mankind, serve rather to heighten them. Nitimur in vetitum semper, cupimusque negata [we always resist prohibitions, and yearn for what is denied us].
Love your neighbor as yourself. That’s what we need to adopt to be a better country.

There is no place in the world like Australia. Not even its beautiful neighbor New Zealand.
Sometimes a neighbor whom we have disliked a lifetime for his arrogance and conceit lets fall a single commonplace remark that shows us another side, another man, really; a man uncertain, and puzzled, and in the dark like ourselves.

I may repeat ‘Do as you would be done by’ till I am black in the face, but I cannot really carry it out till I love my neighbor as myself: and I cannot learn to love my neighbor as myself till I learn to love God;and I cannot learn to love God except by learning to obey him.
I grew up in the Valley, and I didn’t know any of our neighbors. I think when you grow up like that, there’s always sort of a fantasy of a place where everybody knew each other, and you had that safe sort of feeling.
What we call vice in our neighbor may be nothing less than a crude virtue. To him who knows nothing more of precious stones than he can learn from a daily contemplation of his breastpin, a diamond in the mine must be a very uncompromising sort of stone.
We could advance the human race enormously if we but learned to communicate honestly with our neighbors.
How can you satisfy your hunger while your neighbor is spending the night hungry?

If you find a neighbor in need, you’re responsible for serving that neighbor in need, you’re responsible for loving a neighbor just like you’d like to love yourself.
My neighbor complains every time my girlfriend and I have sex. We’re not even that loud. But he used to date my girlfriend.
Conscience and wealth are not always neighbors.
But the Good Book said a lot of things. Like ‘love thy neighbor’ and ‘ do unto others as you would have them do unto you’. If nothing else, wasn’t the message of the Good Book to live and let live? So how could the Crosses call themselves ‘God’s chosen’ and still treat us the way they did?
Religion can make it worse. Are you supposing that if people were encouraged to believe in a transcendent reality, and to be encouraged by grand rituals and music and preaching, to love their neighbors, then they would put jealousy and frustration aside?

I am puzzled by people today who, after moralizing about the need for cooperation and goodwill and love-thy-neighbor-as-thyself, suddenly invoke the most primitive, barbarous motivations for any kind of progress.
Interpreting anyone’s marriage – a neighbor’s, let alone the president’s – is extremely difficult. And yet, examining the first couple’s relationship – their negotiations of public and private life, of conflicts and compromises – offers hints about Barack Obama the president, not just Barack Obama the husband.
It is folly to punish your neighbor by fire when you live next door.
If we wish to serve God and love our neighbor well, we must manifest our joy in the service we render to Him and them. Let us open wide our hearts. It is joy which invites us. Press forward and fear nothing.
We still have community, but we don’t seem to have local community. Even in a small town where you know your neighbors and your mother’s down the street, they’re not in arm’s length.
For what do we live, but to make sport by subjecting our neighbors to endless discretionary review for minor additions?
Love thy neighbor as thyself.В Because each of us is his own neighbor.
When your house is on fire, you cant be bothered with the neighbors. Or, as we say in Chess, if your King is under attack you don’t worry about losing a Pawn on the Queen’s side

For me, the terror of the zombie is that at any moment, your friend, your family, you neighbor, your teacher, the guy at the bodega down the street, can be revealed as the monster they’ve always been.
I want to stop. I want to stay on FГҐrГ¶, and read the books I havenвЂ™t read, find out things I havenвЂ™t yet found out. I want to write things I havenвЂ™t written. To listen to music, and talk to my neighbors. To live together with my wife a very calm, very secure, very lazy existence, for the rest of my life.
It would be really great if I discovered a cure for cancer, but it would only be a little bit less great if my neighbor did. So I am pretty happy when my neighbor becomes wealthier, better educated and more innovative. I feel the same about China and India.

Do not despise or hate your neighbor because he has been a success; take care of your own case.
I’m very glad Christ tells us to love our neighbor and not to like our neighbor because it’s hard to like someone threatening your children and throwing fire bombs through your window, but He asks us to love them and that I can do
One thing that has gone away from civil discussion in America is this idea that our neighbors are not out to ruin the world. We need to come at it from a civil place.
I do not want to heap coals of fire on anyone’s head, but I would like to advise those who keep the living thought of the dead hidden away in cardboard boxes, to pass on as quickly as possibly such explosive material, whose only legitimate heir is the whole world, that is to say, my neighbor.
The good of our soul is more important than that of our body; and we have to prefer the spiritual welfare of our neighbor to our bodily comforts. . .

My responsibility to myself, my neighbors, my family and the human family is to try to tell the truth.
Each man is afraid of his neighbor’s disapproval – a thing which, to the general run of the human race, is more dreaded than wolves and death.

If we wish to keep peace with our neighbours, we should never remind any one of his natural defects.
The only faults considered grave are the following: not respecting the rights of one’s neighbor, letting oneself be paralyzed by fear, feeling guilty, thinking one does not deserve the good and bad which occurs in life, and being a coward.

And if we are not free, must we not hear the answer?

I am convinced that the moment is coming when, with its message of eternal, universal values, it will come to the aid of our society.

Someone who loves a neighbor allows him to be as he is, as he was, and as he will be.
No one can write their real religious life with pen or pencil. It is written only in actions, and its seal is our character, not our orthodoxy.
