" The essence of life is to honour all paths and all people. For to embrace diversity is to celebrate the beauty of truth and the mystic power of humanity."

A Quote by Staceyann Chin on slam poetry, diversity, and individuality

I am too many flavors for one f***ing spoon.

I want to erase the lines so I can be me.

If we do not speak, who will?

A Quote by Derrick on life, reality, understanding, diversity, tolerance, and change

 

Black people are the magical faces at the bottom of society's well.  Even the poorest whites, those who must live their lives only a few levels above, gain their self-esteem by gazing down on us.  Surely, they must know that their deliverance depends on letting down their ropes.  Only by working together is escape possible.  Over time, many reach out, but most simply watch, mesmerized into maintaining their unspoken commitment to keeping us where we are, at whatever cost to them or to us (Bell).

A Quote by Chinua Achebe on diversity, variety, and multiplicity

Diversity is not an abnormality but the very reality of our planet. The human world manifests the same reality and will not seek our permission to celebrate itself in the magnificence of its endless varieties. Civility is a sensible attribute in this kind of world we have; narrowness of heart and mind is not.
~ Chinua Achebe, 1930- ~

A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on individuality and diversity

The light that the sun casts on the planets is the same for all, but each planet reflects it according to its own color, and the radiation that it returns is determined by its constitution.  In this inevitable diversity of color there is no treachery or false transmission, but it does explain why no teacher, however great, can all himself the sole possessor of the Truth.  He can only teach according to the type and “color” of his own soul, and to his capacity for faithful representation.  Beyond this limit he would be exceeding or misdirecting his mission, and adding a heavy responsibility to his burden of karma.

A Quote by Magus Peter H. Gilmore on government, democracy, pursuit of happiness, freedom, diversity, and individuality

"...when a nation encourages the individual pursuit of happiness,  there is no guarantee that everyone is going to like what everyone else  is doing. That is part of freedom—tolerance of diversity."

A Quote by unknown on spirit and diversity

 ‘The great sin against the human spirit is closure against the diversity and variety of human experience -- a narrow dogmatism that insists on the absolute and exclusive validity of some particular language and the particular version of reality that this language articulates. And the central virtue, therefore, is openness to experience, caritas for the difference and diversities to be found within experience'
