We hope that the world will not narrow into a neighborhood before it has broadened into a brotherhood.
Lyndon Baines Johnson
The brotherhood of man is evoked by particular men according to their circumstances…In the name of our freedom and our brotherhood we are prepared to blow up the other half of mankind and to be blown up in turn.
12.8 R. D. Laing 1927-89
The principle of the brotherhood of man is narcissistic… for the grounds for that love have always been the assumption that we ought to realize that we are the same the whole world over.
The uniform makes for brotherhood, since when universally adopted it covers up all differences of class and country.
We live in a world that has narrowed into a neighborhood before it has broadened into a brotherhood.
Lyndon B. Johnson
What is a wife and what is a harlot? What is a church and what is a theatre? are they two and not one? Can they exist separate? Are not religion and politics the same thing? Brotherhood is religion. O demonstrations of reason dividing families in cruelty and pride!

You cannot contribute anything to the ideal condition of mind and heart known as Brotherhood, however much you preach, posture, or agree, unless you live it.

Brotherhood is not just a Bible word. Out of comradeship can come and will come the happy life for all.
Brotherhood is the very price and condition of man’s survival.
Carlos P. Romulo
From a viable economy to the full funding of Headstart, from a clean environment to true equality for women, from a strong military to a commitment to racial brotherhood, from schools that are honored to streets free of excessive violence.
I believe in the brotherhood of all men, but I don’t believe in wasting brotherhood on anyone who doesn’t want to practice it with me. Brotherhood is a two-way street.
I believe that if we really want human brotherhood to spread and increase until it makes life safe and sane, we must also be certain that there is no one true faith or path by which it may spread.
Adlai E. Stevenson
I cannot lead you into battle. I do not give you laws or administer justice but I can do something else – I can give my heart and my devotion to these old islands and to all the peoples of our brotherhood of nations.
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
