Audre Lorde
“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”
Audre Lorde, Our Dead Behind Us: Poems

Leonardo da Vinci
“As every divided kingdom falls, so every mind divided between many studies confounds and saps itself.”
Leonardo da Vinci

“The most dangerous people in the world are not the tiny minority instigating evil acts, but those who do the acts for them. For example, when the British invaded India, many Indians accepted to work for the British to kill off Indians who resisted their occupation. So in other words, many Indians were hired to kill other Indians on behalf of the enemy for a paycheck. Today, we have mercenaries in Africa, corporate armies from the western world, and unemployed men throughout the Middle East killing their own people - and people of other nations - for a paycheck. To act without a conscience, but for a paycheck, makes anyone a dangerous animal. The devil would be powerless if he couldn't entice people to do his work. So as long as money continues to seduce the hungry, the hopeless, the broken, the greedy, and the needy, there will always be war between brothers.”
Suzy Kassem

Nelson Algren
“... Chicago divided your heart. Leaving you loving the joint for keeps. Yet knowing it never can love you.”
Nelson Algren, Chicago: City on the Make

“When two brothers are busy fighting, an evil man can easily attack and rob their poor mother. Mankind should always stay united, standing shoulder to shoulder so evil can never cheat and divide them.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“The human body resonates at the same frequency as Mother Earth. So instead of only focusing on trying to save the earth, which operates in congruence to our vibrations, I think it is more important to be one with each other. If you really want to remedy the earth, we have to mend mankind. And to unite mankind, we heal the Earth. That is the only way. Mother Earth will exist with or without us. Yet if she is sick, it is because mankind is sick and separated. And if our vibrations are bad, she reacts to it, as do all living creatures.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Guy Gavriel Kay
“She was owner and captive, both, of a bitterly divided heart.”
Guy Gavriel Kay, Tigana

Neal Shusterman
“The accountant lingers at his children's doorway a moment more, listening to the easy rhythm of their breathing, and something cold moves through him, like the passage of a ghost - but he know that's not it. It's more like the portent of a future. A future that must never come to pass...
...and for the first time, he gives rise to a thought that is silently echoed in millions of homes that night.
My God... what have we done?”
Neal Shusterman, UnDivided

“Humility is a virtue of the heavenly, not arrogance. Are we the most superior beast on earth? No, not in strength and not in intelligence. It is very arrogant to assume that we are the most intelligent species when we keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again. Both rats and monkeys have been shown to learn from error, yet we have not. More people have died in the name of religion than any other cause on earth. Is massacring God’s creations really serving God – or the devil? And what father would want to see his children constantly divided and fighting? What God would allow a single human life to be sacrificed for monetary gain? Again, the Creator or the devil?”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Paulo Coelho
“A divided kingdom cannot defend itself from its adversaries. A divided person cannot face life in a dignified way.”
Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

“People nowadays talk about the world's problems like they're reading lines off a teleprompter. They recite what they're told and echo it without thinking. It has become easier to divide people than to unify them, and to blind them than to give them vision. We are no longer unified like a bowl of Cheerios. Instead, we have become as segregated as a box of Lucky Charms. Every day we see the same leprechauns on TV acting like they're the experts of everything.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Shame on the misguided, the blinded, the distracted and the divided. Shame. You have allowed deceptive men to corrupt and desensitize your hearts and minds to unethically fuel their greed.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“The devil would be powerless if he couldn't entice people to do his work. So as long as money continues to seduce the hungry, the hopeless, the broken, the greedy, and the needy, there will always be war between brothers.”

Eloise Dyson
“I’ve learnt that eyes don't change. No matter how old or beat up you get, your eyes stay the same.”
Eloise Dyson, Divided

“God would prefer us all to be united than divided. The devil would prefer us all to be divided than united. God prefers the man who loves than the one who hates. The devil prefers the man who hates than the one who loves.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Eloise Dyson
“It’s funny. From up here, the destruction seems to fade. Almost as if like people, in time, even the world can heal itself.”
Eloise Dyson, Divided

Anthony Liccione
“We are equal by fault, but never equal in acceptance.”
Anthony Liccione

“UNDIVIDED

I am for
One world undivided.
One world without fear and corruption.
One world ruled by Truth and Justice.

I am for
One peaceful world for all,
Where hate has been overcome by love,
And everyone is guided only
By their conscience.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Boris Pasternak
“It's only in mediocre books that people are divided into two camps and have nothing to do with each other. In real life everything gets mixed up! Don't you think you'd have to be a hopeless nonentity to play only one role all your life, to have only one place in society, always to stand for the same thing?”
Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

Eloise Dyson
“That’s what Old World love really is. To be so close to someone that our hearts are connected by a force stronger than the distance between us.”
Eloise Dyson, Divided

“Onze aarde hangt niet voor niets scheef. Het is een ironische onderstreping van al het zijn op haar bodem.”
Anna Jae

Felix Wantang
“All unbelievers in Jesus Christ is a House Divided Against Itself; it cannot stand against Jesus Christ.”
Felix Wantang, Spiritual Wisdom from Jesus Christ: Volume One

Munia Khan
“Wind and breeze are separated today
Crimson twilight denies to fade away
Grass blades turn brown to match the soil
We pretend to smile at every turmoil”
Munia Khan

James C. Dobson
“Abraham Lincoln quoted the Scriptures in an 1858 speech to the Illinois Republican Convention. He said, “ A house divided against itself cannot stand.” That, I fear, is where diversity leads. If by that term we refer to love and tolerance for peoples who are different from one another, it has great validity for us. But if by diversity we mean that all of us have been given reason to resent one another. Having no common values, heritage, commitment, or hope, then we are a nation in serious trouble.”
James C. Dobson, Life on the Edge: The Next Generation's Guide to a Meaningful Future

Yash Gupta
“Women divided by ego and united by gossip ,
Men divided by women and united by beer”
Yash Gupta

Ana Claudia Antunes
“Inequality and poverty, health and wealth are hand in hand.
And if we are all born equal that should be true in all lands.
We cannot divide the world between poor and rich countries.
It's like saying the ones are good, the others are junkies.
That can only increase more prejudice, miseries and sorrow.
Turning the wheel today it will lead to a better tomorrow.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, The Mysterious Murder of Marilyn Monroe

Kat Lahr
“Equality has a hard time in humanity. Race, sexuality, or creed has always divided societies.”
Kat Lahr, A Time Of Renewal

“Peace that follows battle is a futile peace. It is time to count dead and to assess which side stands closer to the win.”
J.E. DiPalo

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“As we all know, as if forever exploiting or attempting to exploit each other were not enough, a group of sane human beings who have just reached the end of a war against a common enemy of theirs will sooner or later start or continue killing and/or fighting against each other.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana, The Use and Misuse of Children

“To do things right, we need to UNITE black and white, red and blue, blue and white - all stars and stripes. We need to either apply all the lessons from the past - or get rid of all the stories and START AGAIN. We are moving towards a rainbow world. Our children are intermixing and so are our colors. You can keep your religions and traditions, but always stand with what is good for the greater good of ALL as a united neighborhood instead of a segregated team. This is what America needs. This is what the world needs. Our unity. In our schools, neighborhoods, communities, state offices and economic equations. Choosing to stand with the right wing or left wing, or this group or that group, is only going to keep this country divided and grounded. In the end, all human needs are the same and they will never change. So what is there to fight about? Let's hit restart and unite. Flip the script and start again. To make America truly great again, it must be united. Every bird needs two wings to fly. Any nation torn at the wings will never soar the skies. So we can all start here. The only political party anyone should be an active part of is the one called concerned.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
