Dr. Robyn Silverman announces the December Powerful Word: Tolerance

December is Tolerance Month!

Tolerance Quotes:

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” (paraphrasing Voltaire) Evelyn Beatrice Hall

“The capacity for getting along with our neighbor depends to a large extent on the capacity for getting along with ourselves. The self-respecting individual will try to be as tolerant of his neighbor’s shortcomings as he is of his own.”   Eric Hoffer

“It is the duty of every cultured man or woman to read sympathetically the scriptures of the world. If we are to respect others’ religions as we would have them respect our own, a friendly study of the world’s religions is a sacred duty.–Mohandas K. Gandhi

“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

“Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too.” –Voltaire

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”–Friedrich Nietzsche

“Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one’s own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.”— John Fitzgerald Kennedy

“Tolerance is not indifference. It’s respect for difference.” –Dr. Robyn Silverman
