Similarities and Differences - Quotes


“Human beings are more alike than unlike, and what is true anywhere is true everywhere. Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but demonstrating that all people laugh, cry, eat, worry and die – it can introduce an idea that if we try to understand each other, we may even become friends.”

   – Maya Angelou (American Poet, b. 1928)
