What is Tolerance?

27 04 2009

“Tolerance is an attitude, a way of thinking, and a lifestyle, all in one.

Tolerance means that you are free to adhere to your own convictions, and accept that others adhere to theirs. Tolerance involves rejection of dogmatism and absolutism.

Tolerance is taking responsibility for your contribution to society and the impact of your actions on others.

Tolerance is not to ‘simply endure the presence of others’, nor does it mean you have to embrace the other’s beliefs.

Tolerance is harmony in difference.”
