“The logic behind patriotism is a mystery. At least a man who believes that his own family or clan is superior to all others is familiar with more than 0.000003% of the people involved.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Erin Hunter
“Fire will save the Clan," she murmured, and Fireheart remembered the mysterious prophecy that he had heard from his earliest days in ThunderClan. "You never understood, did you?" Bluestar went on.

Erin Hunter, A Dangerous Path

Fonda Lee
“I have been chosen and trained to carry the gift of the gods for the good and protection of the people, and against all enemies of the clan, no matter their strength or numbers. I join myself to the fellowship of jade warriors, freely and with my whole being, and I will call them my brothers-in-arms. Should I ever be disloyal to my brother, may I die by the blade. Should I ever fail to come to the aid of my brother, may I die by the blade. Should I ever seek personal gain at the expense of my brother, may I die by the blade. Under the eyes of all the gods in Heaven, I pledge this. On my honor, my life, and my jade.”
Fonda Lee, Jade City

“Dunia – Mfumo wa Jua wa Sol – Solar Interstellar Neighborhood – Njiamaziwa – Local Galactic Group – Virgo Supecluster – Local Supercluster – Ulimwengu unaoonekana – Ulimwengu. Huu ndiyo ukoo wa dunia yetu. Chochote alichokifanya Yoshua kilitokea katika ukoo huu.”

“Uwezekano wa watoto wa ukoo mmoja kuoana ni mkubwa kwa sababu damu ina nguvu ya uvutano. Kuhakikisha kwamba familia zinafahamiana na kushirikiana katika mambo mbalimbali ni jukumu la wazazi.”
Enock Maregesi

“Your father doesn't like me," Charley said to Wesley later when Wesley had gotten them away from the crowd.
"Father doesn't seem to like anyone," Wesley said. "Don't let it worry you."
"But you brought me to his house. I don't like to be in the home of someone who doesn't like me."
"But my brother Skylar claims it is his home, and I believe that Skylar does like you," Wesley said. "He's Indian like you."
"Yes. We are both Cherokees. What is Skylar's clan?"
"I believe I've heard him say that it's Wolf."
"Then we are related. I'm Wolf clan."
"That's amazing, Charley. So you and my brother are related. Does that make us related too?"
"I don't think so, Wesley, because the relationship is through our mothers."
"Well, that's too bad. I would like to be your brother.”
Robert J. Conley

“Instead of insisting that no quarrel shall be suffered to arise between one brother and another, they would simply acknowledge that no such quarrel ever could by any possibility arise. In other words, instead of a prohibition, we should have the recognition of an impossibility. The characters in the Icelandic sagas are in this position still —though we may feel that the cohesion of the clan is on the point of weakening. They have still, more or less unimpaired, the involuntary respect for all such interests as may affect the clan as a whole; an extreme of caution and foresight in regard to all such enterprise as cannot with certainty be regarded as unaffecting the interest of all its members.”
Vilhelm Grønbech, The Culture of the Teutons: Volumes 1 and 2
