    This is a very popular verse. It's a bit similar to BG 6.9. SP discusses it in 770424me.bom. ayam bandhuH ayam neti jJAna laghu cetasAm udAra caritAnAm tu vasudhaiva kutumbakam "This is a friend but that one is not," says a simple-minded person. To a broad-minded person the whole world is a family. (MahA UpaniSad 6.72)
