A Quote by George A. Sloan on achievement, action, admiration, america, conviction, courage, country, improvement, kindness, leadership, life, men, nations, people, strength, tolerance, world, and youth

The nations of the world look to the people of this country for leadership. They have seen our youth in action. They have seen their courage and their strength. Off the battlefield they have seen and admired the human kindness and the tolerance of the men who went overseas for us and for them. May we stand firm in our conviction that America has achieved a way of life that we can all cherish-and cherishing, strive ever to guard and improve.

A Quote by Frank Moore Colby on apathy, composers, love, and tolerance

A Quote by Frank Knox on belief, civilization, education, experience, facts, heart, justice, learning, liberals, men, mercy, progress, quality, thought, tolerance, women, and work

I believe with all my heart that civilization has produced nothing finer than a man or woman who thinks and practices true tolerance. Some one has said that most of us don't think, we just occasionally rearrange our prejudices. And I suspect that even today, with all the progress we have made in liberal thought, the quality of true tolerance is as rare as the quality of mercy. That men of all creeds have fundamental common objectives is a fact one must learn by the process of education. How to work jointly toward these objectives must be learned by experience.

A Quote by Francis Maitland Balfour on charity, children, enemies, fatherhood, forgiveness, friendship, good, heart, men, motherhood, respect, and tolerance

The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.

A Quote by Edward Morgan "E. M." Forster on love, people, tolerance, and virtue

Tolerance is a very dull virtue. It is boring. Unlike love, it has always had a bad press. It is negative. It merely means putting up with people, being able to stand things.

E.M. Forster (1879 - 1970)

A Quote by Dr. Arthur Earnest Morgan on commitment, economics, facts, intuition, life, planning, tolerance, truth, variety, and wisdom

There is deep intuitive wisdom in this American tolerance of economic variety and in our refusal to commit ourselves to any one social and economic system. It is recognition of the fact that life and truth are too varied and complex to be confined within the pattern of any single deliberately planned economic system.

Dr. Earnest Morgan (1878 -)

A Quote by Dorothy Law Neite on acceptance, appreciation, approval, children, confidence, criticism, encouragement, faith, friendship, guilt, jealousy, justice, learning, life, love, patience, praise, ridicule, security, shame, shyness, tolerance, and wo

Children Learn What They Live If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn. If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight. If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy. If a child lives with jealousy, he learns to feel guilty. If a child lives with impropriety, he learns to feel shame. If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient. If a child lives with encouragement he learns confidence If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate. He a child lives with fairness, he learns justice. If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith. If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself. If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to find love in the world. With what is your child living?

A Quote by Derek Bok on curiosity, decisions, doubt, education, entertainment, exploring, tolerance, and uncertainty

An educated man must have a "curiosity in exploring the unfamiliar and unexpected, an open-mindedness in entertaining opposing points of view, tolerance for the ambiguity that surrounds so many important issues, and a willingness to make the best decisions he can in the face of uncertainty and doubt."

A Quote by Dee W. Hock on ability, foolishness, humility, judgment, perspective, reward, strength, tolerance, trust, weakness, and wisdom

Never hire or promote in your own image. It is foolish to replicate your strength and idiotic to replicate your weakness. It is essential to employ, trust, and reward those whose perspective, ability, and judgment are radically different from yours. It is also rare, for it requires uncommon humility, tolerance, and wisdom.

A Quote by Clifford Geertz on achievement, difficulty, life, mind, nature, sharing, tolerance, and world

To see ourselves as others see us can be eye-opening. To see others as sharing a nature with ourselves is the merest decency. But it is from the far more difficult achievement of seeing ourselves amongst others, as a local example of the forms human life has locally taken, a case among cases, a world among worlds, that the largeness of mind, without which objectivity is self-congratulation and tolerance a sham, comes.
