A Quote by Phyllis McGinley on bravery, courage, god, motherhood, nature, needs, parenthood, patience, praise, soul, and tolerance

God knows that a mother needs fortitude and courage and tolerance and flexibility and patience and firmness and nearly every other brave aspect of the human soul. But because I happen to be a parent of almost fiercely maternal nature, I praise casualness. It seems to me the rarest of virtues.

If we could look into each other's hearts and understand the unique challenges each of us face, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

A Quote by Malcolm S. Forbes on business, democracy, politics, tolerance, and understanding

Few businessmen are capable of being in politics - they don't understand the democratic process-they have neither the tolerance nor the depth it takes - democracy isn't a business.

A Quote by Joseph R. Garber on achievement, bitterness, equality, good, happiness, harmony, libraries, police, politics, power, respect, self-respect, speech, superiority, thought, tolerance, truth, and women

I cannot feel good about being a woman unless you feel bad about being a man. I cannot be proud of being black unless you are ashamed of being white. I cannot respect myself for being gay unless you are embarrassed that you are straight. Tolerance has been put by the boards; it is a stale and bitter thing and we will have none of it. Equality, likewise; is condescending at best and in truth intended to demean. If I am to achieve the inner harmony and self-respect that is my due, it will not suffice for you and I to be equals. No! Nothing less than superiority will make me happy. And to ensure that I make my point, I shall commend your libraries to the flames, rewrite your histories, purge your dictionaries, and arm the thought police with power to enforce political correctness in all speech and apprehension.

Joseph R. Garber
