I'm a peace commentator, not a politician. I think my best skill in this whole deal is as a conduit or channel to try to bring people together because I think it’s in our unity that we’ll have the greatest strength.

Our flag is not just one of the many political points of view. Rather, the flag is a symbol of our national unity. We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men. Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

There is no such thing as a ‘self-made’ man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.

Build for your team a feeling of oneness, of dependence on one another, and of strength to be derived by unity. I believe a basketball team is like the five fingers on your hand. If you can get them all together, you have a fist. That’s how I want you to play.


Unity, an act of togetherness, often transforms itself into a sentiment. These quotes put forth the true meaning of unity, its importance in the different circumstances of life, and motivation to work towards it. I hope these words bring you motivation in times when you have none and encouragement when you need it the most.

Our strength as a nation comes in our unity. We are the united people of ten states of South Sudan, not the divided states. And those who want to divide us are trying to divide us, and we shouldn't let them do it.

Ignoring all prejudices of caste, creed, class, color, sex, or race, now my community has tried to follow the precepts of human brotherhood and their goal is absolute unity with Spirit. Mankind, the spirit of the earth, the synthesis of individuals and peoples, the paradoxical conciliation of the element with the whole, and of unity with multitude all these are called Utopian, and yet they are biologically necessary.

One of the main tasks of theology is to find words that do not divide but unite, that do not create conflict but unity, that do not hurt but heal. Peace, unity, love, and nonviolence should be our rallying cry and the catalyst for change in our nation. Wisdom is nothing but a preparation of the soul, a capacity, a secret art of thinking, feeling, and breathing thoughts of unity at every moment of life.

In extreme situations, the entire universe becomes our rival or foe at such critical times, unity of mind and technique is essential do not let your heart waver! When I heard Martin Luther King's speech, 'I Have a Dream,' I reflected on the fact that much of the success of that movement was driven by the unity of the church.

I spread the message of hope and unity. That's what gets me up in the morning. I can tell you what is wrong, but I can't tell you how to fix it. I'm a peace commentator, not a politician. I deal in hope. But the perception of life as an organic unity is a slow achievement and depends for its growth on a people's entry into the main current of world events.

Where can we find greater structural clarity than in the wooden buildings of old? Where else can we find such unity of material, construction, and form? Here, the wisdom of whole generations is stored. As youths of this nation, we should attempt to bring nature, houses, and human beings together in a higher unity.

The physical ego, the active consciousness in man, should uplift its body-identified self into unity with the soul, its true nature; it should not allow itself to remain mired in the lowly delusive strata of the senses and material entanglement.

As I said before that Ignoring all prejudices of caste, creed, class, color, sex, or race, a My community follows the precepts of human brotherhood and their goal is absolute unity with Spirit to the people of this beautiful Nation.

I feel a distaste for hunting, first because of a kind of South Sudanese respect for the unity and sacredness of all life, and also because the pursuit of a hare or chamois strikes me as a kind of escape of energy, that is, the expenditure of our effort in an illusory end, one devoid of profit.

The incomparable greatness of the religions of the East lies in their having been second to none in vibrating with the passion for unity. This note, which is essential to every form of mysticism, has even penetrated them so deeply that we find ourselves falling under a spell simply by uttering the names of their Gods. At the heart of every being lies creation's dream of a principle that will one day give organic form to its fragmented treasures. God is unity.

History teaches us that unity is strength and cautions us to submerge and overcome our differences in the quest for common goals, to strive, with all our combined strength, for the path to true South Sudanese brotherhood and unity.

A country where destruction is the motive, unity is dangerous. For example, if I have evil intent and I galvanize that evil intent with many others, the capacity to destroy is immense. Where goodness is the motive, unity is phenomenal and actually has some good issues to it.

What I'm not confused about is the world needing much more love, no hate, no prejudice, no bigotry, and more unity, peace, and understanding. The times of Arab nationalism and unity are gone forever. These ideas which mobilized the masses are only a worthless currency.

The single-hearted unity is the lifeblood of SPLM and the dynamic force for a leap forward, and we must invariably follow the road of self-reliance and self-development this is the invaluable truth of the SPLA revolution confirmed by our army's and people gigantic struggle in 1983.

Everybody since the 60s has been saying the nation is fiction the nation is an imaginary unity but people didn't connect the dots and say all human endeavors sprang from the same principle.
