A Quote by Stephanie Sarantos on tolerance

"I can easily feel very right - even righteous - about my opinion.  But I always learn something, especially when I remember that my perception about what happened is only one version of reality.  I care less and less about the truth of any situation.  I find it much more important and effective to focus on the relationships between people and the possibility of coming to agreements and solutions that work to address the issues raised."

A Quote by Eric Hoffer on love, community, tolerance, forgiveness, and sacrifice

The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbor as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves.

Eric Hoffer (1902 - 1983)

A Quote by Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall on islam, religion, and tolerance

In the eyes of history, religious toleration is the highest evidence of culture in a people. It was not until the Western nations broke away from their religious law that they became more tolerant, and it was only when the Muslims fell away from their religious law that they declined in tolerance and other evidences of the highest culture.
