I am putting together a recipe book as a gift for a group of ladies in my neighborhood that I meet with on a monthly basis. Prior to knowing these women, I didn't really have a sense of "neighborhood" and now I love our area so much more - learning the past and working together for a better future for our little part of town.
I'd like to include either a series of quotes/proverbs about good friends making a neighborhood better, but am having a hard time finding anything - beyond "good fences make good neighbors" which really isn't my point. Or a nice short poem about how knowing them has made where I live a better place to be. We span ages and ethnicities and politics, so I'm open to pretty much anything. (I've googled. I'm not a wild fan of poetry as a general rule, so I'm really struggling. Bartlett's has been only minimally helpful.)
