"United we stand, divided we fall" is a phrase that has been used in mottos, from nations and states to songs. The basic concept is that unless the people are united, it is easy to destroy them.


The phrase has been attributed to Aesop, both directly in his fable The Four Oxen and the Lion and indirectly in The Bundle of Sticks.
