tolerance

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on consequences, country, danger, government, history, influence, judaism, lies, majorities, peace, people, strength, survival, tolerance, virtue, and war

Instead of agitating for war, the Jewish groups in this country should be opposing it in every possible way, for they will be among the first to feel its consequences. Tolerance is a virtue that depends upon peace and strength. History shows that it cannot survive war and devastation. A few very far-sighted Jewish people realize this and stand opposed to intervention. But the majority still do not. Their greatest danger to this country lies in their ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our government.

Charles Lindbergh (1902 - 1974)

A Quote by Catherine Marshall on appreciation, conflict, education, evil, existence, freedom, friendship, good, government, greed, happiness, hatred, idealism, ignorance, individuality, lies, life, lust, niceness, optimism, pain, people, philosophy, pove

Without realizing what was happening, most of us gradually came to take for granted the premises underlying the philosophy of optimism. We proceeded to live these propositions, though we would not have stated them as blandly as I set them forth here: Man is inherently good. Individual man can carve out his own salvation with the help of education and society through progressively better government. Reality and values worth searching for lie in the material world that science is steadily teaching us to analyze, catalogue, and measure. While we do not deny the existence of inner values, we relegate them to second place. The purpose of life is happiness, [which] we define in terms of enjoyable activity, friends, and the accumulation of material objects. The pain and evil of life - such as ignorance, poverty, selfishness, hatred, greed, lust for power - are caused by factors in the external world; therefore, the cure lies in the reforming of human institutions and the bettering of environmental conditions. As science and technology remove poverty and lift from us the burden of physical existence, we shall automatically become finer persons, seeing for ourselves the value of living the Golden Rule. In time, the rest of the world will appreciate the demonstration that the American way of life is best. They will then seek for themselves the good life of freedom and prosperity. This will be the greatest impetus toward an end of global conflict. The way to get along with people is to beware of religious dictums and dogma. The ideal is to be a nice person and to live by the Creed of Tolerance. Thus we offend few people. We live and let live. This is the American Way.

A Quote by Caroline Eyring Miner on appreciation, friendship, jesus, justice, love, neighbors, tolerance, and virtue

We speak much of tolerance as if it were the great virtue, but it does not go far enough. Who wants to be tolerated, just to be put up with? Jesus did not say,"Tolerate your neighbor," but instead He said, "Love your neighbors." Each person wants to be loved and appreciated and enjoyed for what he is and for what he can do for his friends and his neighbors.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on education, good, hypocrisy, injustice, learning, love, men, neighbors, people, respect, tolerance, understanding, and violence

If people can be educated to see the lowly side of their own natures, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and to love their fellow men better. A little less hypocrisy and a little more tolerance towards oneself can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant with the weak and the wrong. Sometime in your life you will have been all of these.

A Quote by Arthur Hailey on death, hope, tolerance, and world

Let us then remember the dead-and all wars-gratefully. And let us hope that because of them we may become a touch better, a thimbleful wiser, and a handshake more tolerant of this changing world they did not live to see.

A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on dogs, idleness, tolerance, world, and worship

DOG, n. A subsidiary Deity designed to catch the overflow and surplus of the world's worship. . . . [H]is master works for the means wherewith to purchase the idle wag of the Solomonic tail, seasoned with a look of tolerant recognition.
