A Quote by Alta on neighbors, neighborhoods, aidos, cities, suburbs, and saints

loving your neighbor is all very fine when you have nice neighbors. this is why people choose the town they live in. we all want nice neighbors. It's the folks in the NEXT town who are the bad guys. You'd be amazed at how citified folks hate the people in the suburbs. not the suburbs, the people in them. but would they want us living next door? i ask you.

& joan of arc was noisy. she must have made a lousy neighbor. & jesus, giving everything away – & ghandi, a walking guilt trip. some people make nicer neighbors than others. but there you have it. city planning.

funny how essays on politics, on war & peace, seem to talk about love.

Frank knew he was guilty of arrogance and misanthropy, but he compensated by being kind to strangers and tipping really well at restaurants.
