Tolerance

Quote 2845

Why can't we just get along - Rodney King, the victim of a brutal police beating in Los Angeles in 1991

Quote 2844

What is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? I suppose this depends somewhat upon the size of the soul. I think there are cases where the trade would do -- Josh Billings (1818-85), American humorist, essayist

Quote 2843

We have to tell these guys they have to share our value system, and central to that is tolerance - Bernard-Henri L

Quote 2842

Twenty years from now you will be disappointed by things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover - Mark Twain

Quote 2841

Toleration is the greatest gift of the mind - Helen Keller

Quote 2840

Tolerance means among other things "broad-mindedness". But in the rows over such issues as the Islamic veil, we are offered two decidedly narrow-minded definitions. One says that we must tolerate any expression of cultural identity without criticism, in case we give offence. The other insists we must crack down on views that are not themselves tolerant. In either case, we are living in an age of intolerant tolerance.

Quote 2839

Tolerance is the virtue of the man without convictions - G.K. Chesterton
