#EngQuote: Tolerance

The world has been in a quite tense situation for the past few months (or years, or maybe even centuries). The root of our world’s problems is difference; whether it’s difference in opinion, race and ethnicity, or religious belief. And that is why we will have a look at some quotes on tolerance. I hope they inspire you.

  1. “Tolerance is the ability to forgive those who tend to speak before thinking.” – Catherine Pulsifer
  2. “The test of courage comes when we are in the minority; the test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority.” – Ralph W. Sockman
  3. “The responsibility of tolerance lies with those who have the wider vision.” – George Eliot
  4. “Men build too many walls and not enough bridges.” – Joseph Fort Newton.
  5. “In a multi-racial society, trust, understanding and tolerance are the cornerstones of peace and order.” – Kamisese Mara
  6. “Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one’s own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.” – J.F Kennedy
  7. “What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other’s folly – that is the first law of nature.” – Voltaire
  8. “Christian, Jew, Muslim, shaman, Zoroastrian, stone, ground, mountain, river, each has a secret way of being with the mystery, unique and not to be judged” – Jalalludin Rumi
