4,243. Anyone watching keenly the stealthy convergence of human lots, sees a slow preparation of effects from one life on another, which tells like a calculated irony on the indifference or the frozen stare with which we look at our unintroduced neighbours. (Humanity & Neighbour) George Eliot, Middlemarch

82,816. It is easy enough to spoil the lives of our neighbours without taking so much trouble: we can do it by lazy acquiescence and lazy omission, by trivial falsities for which we hardly know a reason, by small frauds neutralized by small extravagances by maladroit flatteries, and clumsily improvised insinuations. George Eliot, The Mill on the Floss
95,184. I suppose one reason why we are seldom able to comfort our neighbours with our words is that our goodwill gets adulterated, in spite of ourselves, before it can pass our lips. We can send black puddings and petticoes without giving them a flavour of our own egoism; but language is a stream that is almost sure to smack of a mingled soil. There was a fair proportion of kindness in Raveloe; but it was often of a beery and bungling sort, and took the shape least allied to the complimentary and hypocritical. George Eliot, Silas Marner

82,821. Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee.

91,790. Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders.
And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.
Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the Lord. (Truth & Neighbour) Jeremiah 9:4-6
82,823. These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:
And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the Lord. Zechariah 8:16&17
82,824. The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people. (Neighbour & Enemy) G K Chesterton
82,825. Neighbours bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad. Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
82,826. He will not go behind his father's saying,
And he likes having thought of it so well
He says again, Good fences make good neighbours. Robert Frost
