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.

- “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
- “The responsibility of tolerance lies with those who have the wider vision.” – George Eliot
- “Men build too many walls and not enough bridges.” – Joseph Fort Newton.
- “In a multi-racial society, trust, understanding and tolerance are the cornerstones of peace and order.” – Kamisese Mara
- “Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one’s own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.” – J.F Kennedy
