COMMON GROUND QUOTATIONS

“If you don't know the guy on the other side of the world, love him anyway because he's just like you. He has the same dreams, the same hopes and fears. It's one world, pal. We're all neighbors. ”

Frank Sinatra

“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.”

Chief Seattle

“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.”

George Washington Carver

“We haven't all had the good fortune to be ladies; we haven't all been generals, or poets, or statesmen; but when the toast works down to the babies, we stand on common ground—for we have all been babies.”

Mark Twain

“It's easy to find reasons for division between people. Finding common ground is harder, but a step towards happiness.”

Unknown

Um verdadeiro amigo está perto nos bons e maus momentos, que eu seja e tenha amigos. A true friend is close in good and bad times, and I have to be friends.

I have a similar story: From small town, to college degrees, addiction, top level executive, to homeless, to ministry and now leading others to recovery.
