Timothy Keller
“We instinctively tend to limit for whom we exert ourselves. We do it for people like us, and for people whom we like. Jesus will have none of that. By depicting a Samaritan helping a Jew, Jesus could not have found a more forceful way to say that anyone at all in need - regardless of race, politics, class, and religion - is your neighbour. Not everyone is your brother or sister in faith, but everyone is your neighbour, and you must love your neighbour.”
Timothy Keller, Generous Justice: How God's Grace Makes Us Just

Victor Hugo
“If they had had a different neighbour, one less sel-absorbed and more concerned for others, a man of normal, charitable instincts, their desperate state would not have gone unnoticed, their distress-signals would have been heard, and perhaps they would have been rescued by now. Certainly they appeared utterly depraved, corrupt, vile and odious; but it is rare for those who have sunk so low not to be degraded in the process, and there comes a point, moreover, where the unfortunate and the infamous are grouped together, merged in a single, fateful world. They are les misérables - the outcasts, the underdogs. And who is to blame? Is it not the most fallen who have most need for charity?”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

“The Umbrella

Ion Bulbuk has bought an umbrella.
“Knock-knock” – it is a neighbour at the door.
“It is going to rain, Ion. Give me your umbrella, please.”
“It is not in the house,” lied Bulbuk.
It rains…
Bulbuk is walking wet in the yard, for the neighbour to see that the umbrella is not at home. But the neighbour is not watching.
He went in the village for his business.”
Spiridon Vangheli

“The world would be a lot better if people paid as much attention to their conscience as they do to their neighbour’s opinions.”
Vikrant Parsai

“Judge a man by the comments of his neighbour rather than by the words of his mother.”
Vikrant Parsai

“Don’t praise your wife or neighbour’s wife in front of your neighbour.”
Vikrant Parsai

Israelmore Ayivor
“Love your neighbor... and in doing so, do it as you love yourself! Take up the loads that will cause your neighbor a neck pain; don't put a heavy cross over his/her neck!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Shane Claiborne
