tolerance

A Quote by Marlise Karlin on peace, love, humanity, tolerance, happiness, and consciousness

I envision a day when people see beyond differences - to the core of what we all have in common, where what we value most allows all humankind to live peacefully, respecting one another.

A Quote by L. Ron Hubbard on religion, belief, tolerance, understanding, and hubbard

Tolerance is a good cornerstone on which to build human relationships. When one
views the slaughter and suffering caused by religious intolerance throughout all
the history of man and into modern times, one can see that intolerance is a very
nonsurvival activity. Religious tolerance does not mean one cannot express his
own beliefs. It does mean that seeking to undermine or attack the religious
faith and beliefs of another has always been a short road to trouble .

A Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi on womens role, women in conflict, home and family, women in peace, women empowerment, women education, peace and justice, tolerance, aung san suu kyi, nobel peace lauriat, political prisoner, myanmar, and woman leader

For millenia women have dedicated themselves almost exclusively to the task of nurturing, protecting and caring for the young and the old, striving for the conditions of peace that favour life as a whole. To this can be added the fact that, to the best of my knowledge, no war was ever started by women. But it is women and children who have always suffered most in situations of conflict. Now that we are gaining control of the primary historical role imposed on us of sustaining life in the context of the home and family, it is time to apply in the arena of the world the wisdom and experience thus gained in activities of peace over so many thousands or years. The education and empowerment of women throughout the world cannot fail to result in a more caring, tolerant, just and peaceful life for all.

A Quote by Ian McEwan on differences, acceptance, tolerance, writing, fiction, and storytelling

She could write the scene three times over, from three points of view...none of these three was bad, nor were they particularly good.  She need not judge...She need only show seperate minds, as alive as her own, struggling with the idea that other minds were equally alive. It wasn't only wickedness and scheming that made people unhappy, it was confusion and misunderstanding; above all, it was the failure to grasp that other people are as real as you. And only in a story could you enter these different minds and show that they had equal value.  That was the only moral a story need have.

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 Anon on tolerance, religion, and indifference

Religious tolerance is not religious indifference. Tolerance means to value the right of another person to hold beliefs that you know are absolutely wrong.
