I have no idea, I can't find that one anywhere.

Frankly, it sounds like the sort of general thing where there isn't a definite answer to "who said it". It's more of a tag line/bumper sticker/cliche' than a quotation. I really doubt there is any one person it can be attributed to.

If your grade depends on knowing "who said it" you have my condolences.

Okay, it doesn't say exactly this, but it will impress your teacher: a section of Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" talks how about how "I am" (we all are) a part of the people we meet in our lives and the time we live in, etc. But I think since it is for school, you should find the exact passage for yourself -- it will build character and critical thinking skills, and this is a pretty big clue to get you started. (Also, because I moved recently, I'm having trouble finding my own copy. :D)

It is also part of Buddhist philosophy. We are all interconnected on this earth.

Ooh, I just remembered. Check Whitman's "There Was a Child Went Forth"--you can read the whole poem here:
