"Accept" rather than "tolerate", Quotations

I don't like the word "tolerate".  It sounds like you're saying that there's something wrong with someone, but you're okay with them in spite of their faults.

I much prefer the word "acceptance".  You accept that there are differences between people, but you don't think of them as faults.

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." ~ Albus Dumbledore

"We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals." ~ Immanuel Kant

"Be open to the possibilities!"

"Real men aren't bullies."

"People may forget what you said, forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel."

"Not all the law, Inspector, is written in books."

"How you treat me is your karma, how I react is mine."

"If you spend too much time thinking about the future, you aren't living your life."

"Be the change you want to see in the world."

"The path to fearless living goes straight through the roadblocks, not around them."

"An ending doesn't have to be said.  It's the only way to begin something new."

“Tears are words the heart can't express” ~ Unknown

"For Creativity to thrive, it needs a place to call home."

"A true outlaw finds the balance between the passion in his heart and the reason in his mind. The outcome is the balance of might and right." ~ John Teller

"The message is that there are known "knowns."  There are things we know that we know.  There are known unknowns.  That is to say there are things that we now know we don't know.  But there are also unknown unknowns.  There are things we do not know we don't know."
~ Donald Rumsfeld.
