Tolerance is the acceptance of the fact that we do not control the people around us. We have a right to be who we are -- but so does everyone else. Tolerance is a willingness to accept others as they are and to seek mutual benefit in our encounters with them.
Tolerance will become more and more important among us as there become more and more of us. The tighter the quarters, the more tolerant we'll become.
Tolerance makes love easier, but love makes tolerance possible.
