Proverbs are nourishing.

I searched proverbs with word belonging after seeing a flicker fest 2011 documentary The Mystery of Flying Kicks (Matthew Bate, Australia) about the phenomena of tossing sneakers over power lines. 

One interviewee felt the act was like a mark in time, in a particular place in the world and hence gave them a sense of communal belonging.

 'the greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself' Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

'By building relations we create a source of love and personal pride and belonging that makes living in a chaotic world easier'. Susan Lieberman
