Tolerance-Quotable Sunday

Today's Quotable Sunday Theme is Tolerance!

"There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, that it behooves all of us not to talk about the rest of us."
~ Robert Louis Stevenson

"Monsieur l'abbe, I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write."
~ Voltaire

"How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these."
~ George Washington Carver

"What is tolerance? -- it is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other's folly -- that is the first law of nature."
~ Voltaire

"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

"Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too."
~ Voltaire

Love this one:
"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

Have a great Sunday!

Love all your quote choices, Jennifer! This one's my favorite:

"How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these."
~ George Washington Carver

Hope you're enjoying your Sunday! :)
