Today is Quotable Sunday thanks to Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni. Each Sunday, we share a few of our favorite quotes. After watching a movie last night starring Samuel Jackson, Lakeview Terrance, I decided to post quotes on neighbors. What a movie, it surely made me appreciate my neighbors. I hope that you enjoy my quotes this week.
“The capacity for getting along with our neighbor depends to a large extent on the capacity for getting along with ourselves. The self-respecting individual will try to be as tolerant of his neighbor's shortcomings as he is of his own.” - Eric Hoffer
“Nothing makes you more tolerant of a neighbor's noisy party than being there." - Franklin P. Jones
“The impersonal hand of government can never replace the helping hand of a neighbor.” - Hurbert Humphery
“A neighbor is a person who can get to your house in less than a minute and takes two hours to go back home.” - O. A. Battista
“The doctor says to the patient, "Take your clothes off and stick your tongue out the window". "What will that do" asks the patient. The doctor says "I'm mad at my neighbor!" - Henny Youngman
"It is folly to punish your neighbor by fire when you live next door." - Pubilius Syrus
"Love your neighbor as yourself; but don't take down the fence." - Carl Sanburg
"You can be a good neighbor only if you have good neighbors." - Howard Koch
