We may be divided by vast oceans and lands but we live in one world. Your eyes may be blue while mine are brown, but we see the same sky, the same stars. We hear the same sounds, we laugh the same laugh. We speak different languages but we have a connection that’s beyond speech – the love for family, for friends, and for country. Despite the distance and obvious disparities, we’re bonded by God and nature; and therefore, we’re the same.
Unfortunately, some of us still ignore the universal truth that we are one. Fear, selfishness, cruelty, they take over and breed chaos. The unity shared in essence is challenged, destroyed even by those who chose hate over sympathy. But we musn’t lose hope. There’s nothing as loud and powerful as our shared desire for love to prevail. This yearning for peace and love, that’s our humanity talking. The one that bonds us all.
In the end, words don’t translate. They don’t build bridges. It’s your humanity and mine, theirs and ours. It’s human connection at its very core. Here are 30 unity quotes to remind us that we’re one and the same.
