This was posted on my Facebook feed today.

"Tolerance is giving every other human being every right that you claim for yourself."

Robert Green Ingersoll

Agree, disagree? I'm off to work and will be back later with my thoughts.

agreed.

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

Agree. So if I wouldn't tolerate for myself,I won't tolerate it in others.

I thought that was equality....

Tolerance would be not complaining when those rights are given to others.

Nice statement but it is too often in real life and on here that tolerance means you do things I agree with
