development of languages

I was just reading this book "word power made easy" by 'Norman Lewis'.He has a nice way to explain the meaning of a word by the words are made from there Latin and Greek roots.for example "paediatrician" is a word made from the word paidos(Greek=>child) and iatria.
while reading all this a thought came in mind ...
How wonderfull is the fact that culturas have developed in different part of the world unknown to each other yet they have a lot similarities.Language is one of the thought came in people's mind to actually come up with development of language.far apart from each other how these languages have similarities.
