He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.
      - Bible, Luke (ch. XI, v. 23)

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
      - Bible, Psalms (ch. CXXXIII, v. 1)

God plans all perfect combinations.
      - David Brainard

When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.
      - Edmund Burke,
        Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontent

I never use the word "nation" in speaking of the United States. I always use the word "Union" or "Confederacy." We are not a nation but a union, a confederacy of equal and sovereign States.
      - John Caldwell Calhoun, To Oliver Dyer

Men's hearts ought not to be set against one another, but set with one another, and all against evil only.
      - Thomas Carlyle

The Constitution in all its provisions looks to an indestructible union disposed of indestructible States.
      - Salmon Portland Chase,

        see Werden's "Private Life and Public Services of Salmon P. Chase", p. 664

There is no more sure tie between friends than when they are united in their objects and wishes.
  [Lat., Neque est ullum certius amicitiae vinculum, quam consensus et societas consiliorum et voluntatum.,]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Oratio Pro Cnoeo Plancio (II)

Like two single gentlemen rolled into one.
      - George Colman ("The Younger"),
        Broad Grins--Lodgings for Single Gentlemen

By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.
      - John Dickinson

Then join in hand, brave Americans all!
  By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.
      - John Dickinson, The Liberty Song of 1768

When our two lives grew like two buds that kiss
  At lightest thrill from the bee's swinging chime,
    Because the one so near the other is.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
        Brother and Sister (pt. I, st. 1)

Nothing is fair or good alone.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

We must all hang together or assuredly we shall all hang separately.
      - Benjamin Franklin,
        to John Hancock at the signing of the Declaration of Independence

Divide and command, a wise maxim;
  Unite and guide, a better.
    [Ger., Entzwei' und gebiete! Tuchtig Wort,
      Verein' und leite! Bess'rer Hort.]
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,
        Spruche in Reimen (l. 516)

The universal subjugator, the commonplace.
  [Ger., Was uns alle bandigt, das Gemeine.]
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,
        Taschenbuch fur Damen auf das Jahr

Our Union is river, lake, ocean, and sky:
  Man breaks not the medal, when God cuts the die!
    Though darkened with sulphur, though cloven with steel,
      The blue arch will brighten, the waters will heal!
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.,
        Brother Jonathan's Lament for Sister Caroline

There with commutual zeal we both had strove
  In acts of dear benevolence and love;
    Brothers in peace, not rivals in command.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Odyssey
         (bk. IV, l. 241), (Pope's translation)

I know that there is one God in heaven, the Father of all humanity, and heaven is therefore one. I know that there is one sun in the sky, which gives light to all the world. As there is unity in God, and unity in the light, so is there unity in the principles of freedom. Wherever it is broken, wherever a shadow is cast upon the sunny rays of the sun of liberty, there is always danger of free principles everywhere in the world.
      - Louis Kossuth

Unite; for combination is stronger than witchcraft.
      - Toussaint Louverture

Two souls with but a single thought,
  Two hearts that beat as one.
      - Marie Anne Lacy Lovell,
        Ingomar the Barbarian,
        popular translation of lines from Bellinghausen's play, "Der Sohn der Wildniss"

Then none was for a party;
  Than all were for the state;
    Then the great man helped the poor,
      And the poor man loved the great:
        Then lands were fairly portioned;
          Then spoils were fairly sold:
            The Romans were like brothers
              In the brave days of old.
      - Thomas Babington Macaulay,
        Lays of Ancient Rome--Horatius (st. 32)

Oh, shame to men! devil with devil damn'd
  Firm concord holds, men only disagree
    Of creatures rational.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. II, l. 496)

The union of lakes--the union of lands--
  The union of States none can sever--
    The union of hearts--the union of hands--
      And the flag of our Union for ever!
      - George Pope Morris, The Flag of Our Union

The multitude which does not reduce itself to unity is confusion exemplified.
      - Blaise Pascal
