" Tolerance implies
 no lack of commitment
 to one's own beliefs. 
Rather it condemns
 the oppression
 or persecution 
of others. "

John F. Kennedy

" What is tolerance? 
It is the consequence of 
We are all formed 
of frailty and error;
 let us pardon 
each others' folly - 
that is the first law
 of nature. "



" Tolerance is giving 
to every other
 human being 
every right 
that you claim 
for yourself. "

Robert Green Ingersoll

" I think more tolerance,
 more people having more access
 to a chance to be literate,
 and a chance to stay healthy
 makes for a more 
peaceful planet."

Henry Rollins
 " The responsibility
 of tolerance
 lies with those 
who have the 
wider vision. "

George Eliot 
 ~  ><333>  ~
Tolerating the Other,
 the Different,
means you are still 
Other, Difference.

This is a but
a way-station
from intolerance.

When you forget
about Race, Class,
They forget
about You.

there is no
in the 
that arises.

" Tolerance is giving

Robert Green Ingersoll

That is the best quote for me and sums up my belief. On a darker side its scary how many people, including those who think themselves rational and civilized people, can rationalize mistreatment and dehumanization of others different from them.

There's a lot of people down here (south carolina) that could use some more tolerance. Acceptance would be preferred.

It is indeed the difference, which unites.

Please have a good Sunday you all.

It's a "big picture" thought to realize that maybe, just maybe, my way, our way, is not necessarily the best way, i.e. other religions, acupuncture, non-western medicine. Hmmmm, open the mind, learn about "those different people," appreciate, tolerate, accept.
Love the beautiful yellow trumpety flower! DrumMajor

Your images and words are wonderful. You remind me to be tolerant of the blue-eyed Speaker of the House oddball who thinks he's in charge around here.
