[ Also see Broad-mindedness Disinterestedness Forbearance Intolerance Magnanimity Neutrality Tolerance ]

No one, judging from his own feelings and powers, can be aware of the kind or degree of temptation or terror, or the seeming incapacity to resist them, which may induce others to deviate.
      - John Abernethy

What higher praise can we bestow on any one than to say of him that he harbors another's prejudices with a hospitality so cordial as to give him, for the time, the sympathy next best to, if indeed it be not edification in, charity itself. For what disturbs more and distracts mankind than the uncivil manners that cleave man from man?
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

Has not God borne with you these many years? Be ye tolerant to others.
      - Hosea Ballou

Generosity is nothing more seen than in a candid estimation of other men's virtues and good qualities.
      - Isaac Barrow

The religion that fosters intolerance needs another Christ to die for it.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The knowledge beyond all other knowledge is the knowledge how to excuse.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

It requires far more of constraining love of Christ to love our cousins and neighbors as members of the heavenly family than to feel the heart warm to our suffering brethren in Tuscany and Madeira.
      - Mrs. Elizabeth Runkle Charles

I would have all intoleration intolerated in its turn.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

There is nothing to do with men but to love them; to contemplate their virtues with admiration, their faults with pity and forbearance, and their injuries with forgiveness.
      - Orville Dewey

The responsibility of tolerance lies with those who have the wider vision.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

Choose out the wisest, brightest, noblest of mankind, and how many of them could bear to be pursued into the little corners of their lives?
      - Ralph Erskine

Let us often think of our own infirmities, and we shall become indulgent toward those of others.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

Every man must get to heaven his own way.
      - Frederick, the Great (Frederick II)

We are all of one dying, one immortal family.
      - Henry Giles

They who boast of their tolerance merely give others leave to be as careless about religion as they are themselves. A walrus might as well pride itself on its endurance of cold.
      - Augustus William Hare

Tolerance is the only real test of civilization.
      - Sir Arthur Helps

Toleration is the best religion.
      - Victor Hugo

He (Charles Lamb) had felt, thought, and suffered so much that he literally had intolerance for nothing.
      - Leigh Hunt (James Henry Leigh Hunt)

A fallible being will fail somewhere.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

If thou canst not make thyself such an one as thou wouldst, how canst thou expect to have another in all things to thy liking?
      - Thomas a Kempis

Have charity; have patience; have mercy. Never bring a human being, however silly, ignorant, or weak--above all, any little child--to shame and confusion of face. Never by petulance, by suspicion, by ridicule, even by selfish and silly haste--never, above all, by indulging in the devilish pleasure of a sneer--crush what is finest and rouse up what is coarsest in the heart of any fellow-creature.
      - Charles Kingsley

I would recommend a free commerce both of matter and mind. I would let men enter their own churches with the same freedom as their own houses; and I would do it without a homily or graciousness or favor, for tyranny itself is to me a word less odious than toleration.
      - Walter Savage Landor

It is intolerance to speak of toleration. Away with the word from the dictionary!
      - Marquis de Mirabeau, Victor de Riquetti

Men in excess of happiness or misery are equally inclined to severity. Witness conquerors and monks! It is mediocrity alone, and a mixture of prosperous and adverse fortune that inspire us with lenity and pity.
      - Charles de Montesquieu (Charles-Louis de Secondat)

Hardly a man will you find who could live with his door open.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)
