    Here are a few words I am trying to memorize

    Here are a few words I am trying to memorize.
    Can somebody check for errors?
    Thanks in advance.

    Imagine = вообразить

    Can you imagine a world without war?
    Вы можете вообразить мир без войны?

    Dreamer = мечтатель

    Maybe I am just a dreamer.
    Возможно я - только мечтатель.

    To join (to accept somebody's idea, theory, opinion) = присоединяться

    Will you join us on our crusade?
    Вы присоединитесь к нам на нашем крестовом походе?

    To share = разделять

    Let's all share this world in peace.
    Давайте все разделяет этот мир в миру.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    mostly fine, just a couple things:

    "В нашем походе", а лучше "к нашему крестовому походу".
    To share = разделять

    Let's all share this world in peace.
    Давайте все разделяет этот мир в миру.
    well this one is harder, i am not sure what would be a good way to say this...
    first, if you mean "let's share it peacefully", then "давайте разделим этот мир мирно" would be ok, or if this is "let's share this peaceful world", then it would be "давайте разделим этот мирный мир".
    In any case "разделим" has a connotation of "let's split it among ourselves", ok in a strategy game but probably not so good in a speech about world peace

    Let all the world live together in peace.
    Пусть все мир живёт вместе мирно.

    Миру -- мир!

    The above may contain Siberian words, idioms, usages, and ideas. Take care.
