Tolerate quotes by Katie McGarry
#1. I'm wrong. My house isn't a volcano-I am, and the past two years have created a dormant giant who no longer will tolerate being ignored. I'm tired of this. Tired of how everyone's become so obsessed with themselves, obsessed with the moment, that we've ceased caring what's going to happen next. #Quote by Katie McGarry
Tolerate quotes by Leon Panetta
#2. In the zero-sum budget game, every dollar spent on this problem [illegal immigration] must be taken from somewhere else ... No, we should not tolerate people immigrating illegally. But we need to treat this issue honestly and fairly. #Quote by Leon Panetta
Tolerate quotes by Richard Thomas
#3. Tolerate things that are wrong? No, thank you. #Quote by Richard Thomas
Tolerate quotes by Bill Maher
#4. When you tolerate intolerance, you're not really being a liberal. #Quote by Bill Maher
Tolerate quotes by OMOSOHWOFA CASEY
#5. People love it when you criticise some things which they do not believe in, practices which are contrary to what they practice or contrary views. They call you objective and truthful

But immediately you start disagreeing with their views, criticising their beliefs, expressing contrary views against what they support, they call you foul names, say you are not a child of God, ask who you are to judge.

Listen and listen good, I love writing and I write based on inspiration and experience.

I don't just write, I write to capture the minds of my readers and to spark reaction. I welcome contrary views, I love you opposing my stance cos in the process I learn some things from you.

Don't get mad at me for expressing myself via writing. I love putting things down. Learn to tolerate my views and counter me when you don't agree.

Stop holding grudges and developing unnecessary hatred. Life is too short to be closed minded and inclined. Life is too short for me to idolize anybody.

I can't always be dancing to your tunes, you also have to dance to mine. #Quote by OMOSOHWOFA CASEY
Tolerate quotes by Karl Popper
#6. If we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. - In #Quote by Karl Popper
Tolerate quotes by Suzette Boon
#7. You as a whole person are thus unable to reconcile conflicts about anger and learn to tolerate and express anger in healthy ways. Inner turmoil and dissociation are maintained. #Quote by Suzette Boon
Tolerate quotes by Michael Bennett
#8. If you can tolerate the humiliation and helplessness and admit that you're an out-of-control fuckup, it frees you from expectations that you can't possibly meet, promises you can't keep, and appearances you can't maintain; it liberates you from the ensuring cycle of endless failure. #Quote by Michael Bennett
Tolerate quotes by Henry Cloud
#9. It is true that you get what you tolerate. #Quote by Henry Cloud
Tolerate quotes by Margaret Mead
#10. If the future is to remain open and free, we need people who can tolerate the unknown, who will not need the support of completely worked out systems or traditional blueprints from the past. #Quote by Margaret Mead
Tolerate quotes by Lorrie Moore
#11. If I had a staff of even one person, or could tolerate a small amphetamine habit, or entertain the possibility of weekly blood transfusions, or had been married to Vera Nabokov, or had a housespouse of even minimal abilities, a literary life would be easier to bring about. (In my mind I see all your male readers rolling their eyes. But your female ones - what is that? Are they nodding in agreement? Are their fists in the air?) #Quote by Lorrie Moore
Tolerate quotes by Sascha Radetsky
#12. At Moscow's Bolshoi Ballet Academy, I studied under a brilliant and fiery teacher. This tiny, stuttering old man flew into a rage if his students' white socks failed to reach mid-calf level. Nor could he tolerate floppy hair. We wore hairnets to class - an athletic brigade of short order cooks. #Quote by Sascha Radetsky
Tolerate quotes by Whittaker Chambers
#13. Throughout the most trying phase of the Case, Nixon and his family, and sometimes his parents, were at our farm, encouraging me and comforting my family. My children have caught him lovingly in a nickname. To them, he is always "Nixie," the kind and the good, about whom they will tolerate no nonsense. His somewhat martial Quakerism sometimes amused and always heartened me. I have a vivid picture of him, in the blackest hour of the Hiss Case, standingby the barn and saying in his quietly savage way (he is the kindest of men): "If the American people understood the real character of Alger Hiss, they would boil him in oil. #Quote by Whittaker Chambers
Tolerate quotes by Tom Bingham
#14. There are doubtless those who would wish to lock up all those who suspected of terrorist and other serious offences and, in the time-honored phrase, throw away the key. But a suspect is by definition a person whom no offence has been proved. Suspicions, even if reasonably entertained, may prove to be misplaced, as a series of tragic miscarriages of justice has demonstrated. Police officers and security officials can be wrong. It is a gross injustice to deprive of his liberty for significant periods a person who has committed no crime and does not intend to do so. No civilized country should willingly tolerate such injustices. #Quote by Tom Bingham
Tolerate quotes by Pam Godwin
#15. Life was jaded like that, throwing them together when he couldn't tolerate affection and she was desperate for it. #Quote by Pam Godwin
Tolerate quotes by Rousas John Rushdoony
#16. To control the future requires the control of education and of the child. Hence, for Christians to tolerate statist education, or to allow their children to be trained thereby, means to renounce power in society, to renounce their children, and to deny Christ's Lordship over all of life. #Quote by Rousas John Rushdoony
Tolerate quotes by Alain De Botton
#17. The Romantic vision of marriage stresses the importance of finding the "right" person, which is taken to mean someone in sympathy with the raft of our interests and values. There is no such person over the long term. We are too varied and peculiar. There cannot be lasting congruence. The partner truly best suited to us is not the one who miraculously happens to share every taste but the one who can negotiate differences in taste with intelligence and good grace.

Rather than some notional idea of perfect complementarity, it is the capacity to tolerate dissimilarity that is the true marker of the "right" person. Compatibility is an achievement of love; it shouldn't be its precondition. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Tolerate quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#18. I didn't expect it was going to be easy. But hard work is a lot easier to tolerate when it's something you want to do instead of something you have no choice about. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Tolerate quotes by Isabel Wilkerson
#19. In our era, it is not enough to be tolerant. You tolerate mosquitoes in the summer, a rattle in an engine, the gray slush that collects at the crosswalk in winter. You tolerate what you would rather not have to deal with and wish would go away. It is no honor to be tolerated. Every spiritual tradition says love your neighbor as yourself, not tolerate them. #Quote by Isabel Wilkerson
Tolerate quotes by Thomas Sowell
#20. Someone once said that many bad policies are just good policies that have been carried too far. For example, we have taken tolerance to such an extreme that we tolerate the immigration into our country of millions of intolerant people who hate millions of Americans who are already here. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Tolerate quotes by Miranda July
#21. I mean obviously we're all dealing with a lot more strangers due to the web. I'd say it has more to do with the quality of interactions. When you're physically interacting with someone, it forces you to be more present and probably a little more uncomfortable. You have to tolerate being outside the comfort of your own home. #Quote by Miranda July
Tolerate quotes by Michael Crapo
#22. Our priority must be to build a path towards balancing the budget, and we cannot tolerate growing deficits. #Quote by Michael Crapo
Tolerate quotes by Esther Perel
#23. We see what we want to see, what we can tolerate seeing, and our partner does the same. Neutralizing each other's complexity affords us a kind of manageable otherness. We narrow down our partner, ignoring or rejecting essential parts when they threaten the established order of our coupledom. We also reduce ourselves, jettisoning large chunks of our personalities in the name of love. #Quote by Esther Perel
Tolerate quotes by Hannah Arendt
#24. Persecution of powerless or power-losing groups may not be a very pleasant spectacle, but it does not spring from human meanness alone. What makes men obey or tolerate real power and, on the other hand, hate people who have wealth without power, is the rational instinct that power has a certain function and is of some general use. Even #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Tolerate quotes by Stephen Lovegrove
#25. Tolerance is the essential starting point for compassion. That's why it is so emphasized in our society right now. In a world full of discrimination, prejudice, and marginalization, people need to be taught to tolerate people who are different. Tolerance, at the political, social, and cultural level, will prevent us from choosing speech or actions that harms other people groups, which is a definite win. #Quote by Stephen Lovegrove
Tolerate quotes by Arthur Phillips
#26. If music can ever restore a lost past, then this was the moment. Redemption! We do crave it. But music is different: we tolerate songs without redemption. #Quote by Arthur Phillips
Tolerate quotes by Nicholas Day
#27. Over and over again, cross-cultural research on infancy teaches the exact same lesson: infants can tolerate - and thrive under - care that most any Western parent would assume would end very badly. #Quote by Nicholas Day
Tolerate quotes by A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
#28. O son of Kunti, the nonpermanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of winter and summer seasons. They arise from sense perception, O scion of Bharata, and one must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed. #Quote by A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Tolerate quotes by Gelindo Bordin
#29. [Scientific testing] can't determine how the mind will tolerate pain in a race. Sometimes, I say, 'Today I can die.' #Quote by Gelindo Bordin
Tolerate quotes by Amy Poehler
#30. Your ability to navigate & tolerate change & its painful uncomfortableness directly correlates to your happiness & general well-being #Quote by Amy Poehler
Tolerate quotes by Nicole Williams

Tolerate quotes by Zig Ziglar
#32. The one thing coaches cannot tolerate ... is the individual who grows arrogant because he excelled at a lower level and believes he has nothing else to learn. #Quote by Zig Ziglar
Tolerate quotes by M. Scott Peck
#33. Specifically, one whose life is ruled and dictated by dependency needs suffers from a psychiatric disorder to which we ascribe the diagnostic name "passive dependent personality disorder." It is perhaps the most common of all psychiatric disorders.
People with this disorder, passive dependent people, are so busy seeking to be loved that they have no energy left to love. They are like starving people, scrounging wherever they can for food, and with no food of their own to give to others. It is as if within them they have an inner emptiness, a bottomless pit crying out to be filled but which can never be completely filled. They never feel "full-filled" or have a sense of completeness. They always feel "a part of me is missing." They tolerate loneliness very poorly. Because of their lack of wholeness they have no real sense of identity, and they define themselves solely by their relationships. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Tolerate quotes by Gary L. Thomas
#34. I wouldn't be surprised if many marriages end in divorce largely because one or both partners are running from their own revealed weaknesses as much as they are running from something they can't tolerate in their spouse. #Quote by Gary L. Thomas
Tolerate quotes by Alberto Manguel
#35. Like Petrach's, my books know infinitely more than I do, and I'm grateful that they even tolerate my presence. At times I feel that I abuse the privilege. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Tolerate quotes by Gabor Mate
#36. Like stress, emotion is a concept we often invoke without a precise sense of its meaning. And, like stress, emotions have several components. The psychologist Ross Buck distinguishes between three levels of emotional responses, which he calls Emotion I, Emotion II and Emotion III, classified according to the degree we are conscious of them. Emotion III is the subjective experience, from within oneself. It is how we feel. In the experience of Emotion III there is conscious awareness of an emotional state, such as anger or joy or fear, and its accompanying bodily sensations. Emotion II comprises our emotional displays as seen by others, with or without our awareness. It is signalled through body language - "non-verbal signals, mannerisms, tones of voices, gestures, facial expressions, brief touches, and even the timing of events and pauses between words. [They] may have physiologic consequences - often outside the awareness of the participants."

It is quite common for a person to be oblivious to the emotions he is communicating, even though they are clearly read by those around him. Our expressions of Emotion II are what most affect other people, regardless of our intentions. A child's displays of Emotion II are also what parents are least able to tolerate if the feelings being manifested trigger too much anxiety in them. As Dr. Buck points out, a child whose parents punish or inhibit this acting-out of emotion will be conditioned to respond to similar emotions #Quote by Gabor Mate
Tolerate quotes by E. Lockhart
#37. Noel: A lot of people see friends as something you have on Twitter or Facebook or wherever. If someone wants to read your updates and you want to read their updates, then you're friends. You don't ever have to see each other. But that seems like a stupid definition to me.

Roo: Yeah.

Noel: Although on the other hand, rethink. Maybe a friend is someone who wants your updates. Even if they're boring. Or sad. Or annoyingly cutesy. A friend says, "Sign me up for your boring crap, yes indeed" – because he likes you anyway. He'll tolerate your junk.

Roo: You have lots of friends.

Noel: No, I don't.

Roo: You do. You know everyone at school. You get invited to parties.

Noel: I get invited to parties, yeah. And I know people. But I don't want their updates.

Roo: Oh.

Noel: And I sincerely doubt they want mine.

Roo: I want your updates.

Noel: I want your updates. (He looks down, bashfully.) I do. I want all your updates, Ruby. #Quote by E. Lockhart
Tolerate quotes by Adel Al-Jubeir
#38. We don't tolerate terrorism. We go after the terrorists and those who support them and those who justify their actions. #Quote by Adel Al-Jubeir
Tolerate quotes by Greg Bear
#39. Ray Bradbury is, for many reasons, the most influential writer in my life. Throughout our long friendship, Ray supplied not only his terrific stories but a grand model of what a writer could be, should be, and yet rarely is: brilliant and charming and accessible, willing to tolerate and to teach, happy to inspire but also to be inspired. #Quote by Greg Bear
Tolerate quotes by Kaui Hart Hemmings
#40. We don't treat each other very well, I suppose. Even from the start. It was as though we had the seven-year itch the day we met. The day she went into a coma, I heard her telling her friend Shelley that I was useless, that I leave my socks hanging on every doorknob in the house. At weddings we roll our eyes at the burgeoning love around us, the vows that we know will morph into new kinds of promises: I vow not to kiss you when you're trying to read. I will tolerate you in sickness and ignore you in health. I promise to let you watch that stupid news show about celebrities, since you're so disenchanted with your own life.

Joanie and I were urged by her brother, Barry, to subject ourselves to counseling as a decent couple would. Barry is a man of the couch, a believer in weekly therapy, affirmations, and pulse points. Once he tried to show us exercises he'd been doing in session with his girlfriend. We were instructed to trade reasons, abstract or specific, why we stayed with each other. I started off by saying that Joanie would get drunk and pretend I was someone else and do this neat thing with her tongue. Joanie said tax breaks. Barry cried. Openly. His second wife had recently left him for someone who understood that a man didn't do volunteer work. #Quote by Kaui Hart Hemmings
Tolerate quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#41. Much of the colony's musical experimenting was, quite consciously, concerned with what might be called "time span." What was the briefest note that the mind could grasp - or the longest that it could tolerate without boredom? Could the result be varied by conditioning or by the use of appropriate orchestration? Such problems were discussed endlessly, and the arguments were not purely academic. They had resulted in some extremely interesting compositions. But it was in the art of the cartoon film, with its limitless possibilities, that New Athens had made its most successful experiments. The hundred years since the time of Disney had still left much undone in this most flexible of all mediums. On the purely realistic side, results could be produced indistinguishable from actual photography - much to the contempt of those who were developing the cartoon along abstract lines. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
Tolerate quotes by Garry Kasparov
#42. Ukraine had quite serious impact on the many Russians. They could see that ordinary people in Ukraine which is a bordering state, very close to Russia, the people of this state are, they didn't want to tolerate anymore the power abuse by Ukrainian officials. #Quote by Garry Kasparov
Tolerate quotes by A.W. Tozer
#43. Within each of us an enemy which we tolerate at our peril. Jesus called it "life" and "self," or as we would say, the self-life. Its chief characteristic is its possessiveness: the words "gain" and "profit" suggest this. To allow this enemy to live is in the end to lose everything. To repudiate it and give up all for Christ's sake is to lose nothing at last, but to preserve everything unto life eternal. And possibly also a hint is given here as to the only effective way to destroy this foe: it is by the Cross. "Let him take up his cross and follow me." The #Quote by A.W. Tozer
Tolerate quotes by Mark Manson
#44. Democracy can exist only when you are willing to tolerate views that oppose your own, when you're willing to give up some things you might want for the sake of a safe and healthy community, when you're willing to compromise and accept that sometimes things don't go your way. #Quote by Mark Manson
Tolerate quotes by Andrzej Stasiuk
#45. Freedom has become a commodity whose availability, paradoxically, keeps society in check. The threat of its loss seems to enable us to tolerate its imposition. #Quote by Andrzej Stasiuk
Tolerate quotes by Melanie Shankle
#46. When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not-knowing, not-curing, not-healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is the friend who cares. HENRI J. M. NOUWEN #Quote by Melanie Shankle
Tolerate quotes by John Stuart Mill
#47. All persons are deemed to have a right to equality of treatment, except when some recognized social expediency requires the reverse. And hence all social inequalities which have ceased to be considered expedient assume the character, not of simple inexpediency, but of injustice, and appear so tyrannical that people are apt to wonder how they ever could have been tolerated - forgetful that they themselves, perhaps, tolerate other inequalities under an equally mistaken notion of expediency, the correction of which would make that which they approve seem quite as monstrous as what they have at last learned to condemn. The entire history of social improvement has been a series of transitions by which one custom or institution after another, from being a supposed primary necessity of social existence, has passed into the rank of a universally stigmatized injustice and tyranny. So it has been with the distinctions of slaves and freemen, nobles and serfs, patricians and plebians; and so it will be, and in part already is, with the aristocracies of color, race, and sex. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Tolerate quotes by Foreman Of Earth First
#48. The only people I can't tolerate are the fans of Wayne Newton and Neil Sedaka. #Quote by Foreman Of Earth First
Tolerate quotes by John Bunyan
#49. The conversation between Faithful and Talkative ends when Faithful challenges Talkative to show in his life the fruits of the truths he so easily talks about. This conversation exposes the matter, and the false pilgrim is soon separated from the true pilgrim.
To cry out against sin but to tolerate it comfortably in the heart is an equation that sums up the false pretense of Talkative. The work of grace in the heart offers proofs that cannot be denied. The eloquent Talkative simply lacks the experiential work of grace in his heart.
Again, Christians should be warned not to judge too quickly, since many Christians struggle with sin and surrender in the battlefield of life and often fail. The important thing to understand is that God will always produce a fruitful life in those He has conquered and occupies. The same Lord will disqualify those whose religion is only talk by ordaining that their life lacks the abundance of genuine good fruit while bad fruit abounds.

Tolerate quotes by Kenneth Clark
#50. Heroes do not easily tolerate the company of other heroes. #Quote by Kenneth Clark
Tolerate quotes by Sam Harris
#51. Your frequent claim that we must understand religious belief as a "social construct," produced by "societal causes," dependent upon "social and cultural institutions," admitting of "sociological questions," and the like, while it will warm the hearts of most anthropologists, is either trivially true or obscurantist. It is part and parcel of the double standard that so worries me - the demolition of which is the explicit aim of The Reason Project.

Epidemiology is also a "social construct" with "societal causes," etc. - but this doesn't mean that the germ theory of disease isn't true or that any rival "construct" - like one suggesting that child rape will cure AIDS - isn't a dangerous, deplorable, and unnecessary eruption of primeval stupidity. We either have good reasons or bad reasons for what we believe; we can be open to evidence and argument, or we can be closed; we can tolerate (and even seek) criticism of our most cherished views, or we can hide behind authority, sanctity, and dogma. The main reason why children are still raised to think that the universe is 6,000 years old is not because religion as a "social institution" hasn't been appropriately coddled and cajoled, but because polite people (and scientists terrified of losing their funding) haven't laughed this belief off the face of the earth.

We did not lose a decade of progress on stem-cell research in the United States because of religion as a "social construct"; we lost it because of the be #Quote by Sam Harris
Tolerate quotes by Richard Hamming
#52. Most people like to believe something is or is not true. Great scientists tolerate ambiguity very well. They believe the theory enough to go ahead; they doubt it enough to notice the errors and faults so they can step forward and create the new replacement theory. If you believe too much you'll never notice the flaws; if you doubt too much you won't get started. It requires a lovely balance. #Quote by Richard Hamming
Tolerate quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#53. I call on men and boys everywhere to join us. Violence against women and girls will not be eradicated until all of us - men and boys - refuse to tolerate it. #Quote by Ban Ki-moon
Tolerate quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#54. 10 things to know about Syn 1. I hate people, even myself. 2. I only tolerate my friends and I can count those on one hand. 3. So what if I drink? I like my comfortably numb state and it keeps me from killing you. 4. Money can't buy happiness, but it's better than being poor and miserable. 5. We're all victims. 6. I like to choose my own poison. 7. I'm through reinventing myself. I'm on the third incarnation now and it sucks as much as the other two. 8. I have all the friends money can buy. 9. I only trust one man who doesn't return the gesture. 10. I can steal anything, anywhere, any time. Sober or drunk, I'm the best at what I do. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Tolerate quotes by Brooks Atkinson
#55. We tolerate differences of opinion in people who are familiar to us. But differences of opinion in people we do not know sound like heresy or plots. #Quote by Brooks Atkinson
Tolerate quotes by Andrew Vachss
#56. We don't protect our young, and we tolerate predators of our own species. #Quote by Andrew Vachss
Tolerate quotes by Matt Blaze
#57. What encryption lets us do is say, "Yes, the Internet is insecure." Bad guys are able to compromise computers everywhere, but we're able to tolerate that because if they do intercept our messages, they can't do any harm with it. #Quote by Matt Blaze
Tolerate quotes by A.J. Downey
#58. When you find people who not only tolerate your quirks but celebrate them with glad cries of "Me too!" be sure to cherish them. Because those weirdos are your tribe. #Quote by A.J. Downey
Tolerate quotes by Eric Hoffer
#59. Intolerance is the 'Do Not Touch' sign on something that cannot bear touching. We do not mind having our hair ruffled, but we will not tolerate any familiarity with the toupee which covers our baldness. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Tolerate quotes by Brian Keephimattracted
#60. They didn't become great guys by choosing the easy road. So meeting a woman who has high standards only makes them more attracted to her. They love women who have strong personal boundaries and are confident enough to know what they want and demand it. High-quality men always respect women who do not tolerate manipulative games and have solid standards. Those standards need to be realistic, of course. Some women have impossible standards.

Tolerate quotes by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
#61. The number one reason knitters knit is because they are so smart that they need knitting to make boring things interesting. Knitters are so compellingly clever that they simply can't tolerate boredom. It takes more to engage and entertain this kind of human, and they need an outlet or they get into trouble.
... knitters just can't watch TV without doing something else. Knitters just can't wait in line, knitters just can't sit waiting at the doctor's office. Knitters need knitting to add a layer of interest in other, less constructive ways. #Quote by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Tolerate quotes by George W. Bush
#62. Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th; malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists, themselves, away from the guilty. #Quote by George W. Bush
Tolerate quotes by Ann Northrop
#63. Don't tolerate me as different. Accept me as part of the spectrum of normalcy. #Quote by Ann Northrop
Tolerate quotes by Stanley Kubrick
#64. Don't do anything. Just tolerate me and let me suffer, knowing how you feel. #Quote by Stanley Kubrick
Tolerate quotes by David McDermott
#65. The flip side of this is that they will not tolerate criticism and can be scathing of anyone who criticizes them. They will often attack and belittle the person who is being critical, instead of dealing with the points the person is making. They do this usually because they have no defence against the criticism, they have been found out. So it's easier to destroy the reputation of the critical person instead. #Quote by David McDermott
Tolerate quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#66. Those sentimental radio hits, with their artificial naivete and empty crudities, are the pitiful remains and the maximum that people will tolerate by way of mental effort; it's a ghastly desolation and impoverishmment. By contrast, we can be very glad when something affects us deeply, and regard the accompanying pains as an enrichment. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Tolerate quotes by Robin Black
#67. Make your skin as thick as you are able to, for your career. Keep it as thin as you can tolerate, for your art. #Quote by Robin Black
Tolerate quotes by Daniel Dennett
#68. In short, we need to recover the courage we celebrate in our heroes, and in particular, the courage to tolerate, for the sake of a free society, a level of risk we hardly ever imagined in the past. #Quote by Daniel Dennett
Tolerate quotes by Jacques Maritain
#69. The love of Americans for their country is not an indulgent, it is an exacting and chastising love; they cannot tolerate its defects. #Quote by Jacques Maritain
Tolerate quotes by Romeo Dallaire
#70. Many signs point to the fact that the youth of the Third World will no longer tolerate living in circumstances that give them no hope for the future. From the young boys I met in the demobilization camps in Sierra Leone to the suicide bombers of Palestine and Chechnya, to the young terrorists who fly planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, we can no longer afford to ignore them. We have to take concrete steps to remove the causes of their rage, or we have to be prepared to suffer the consequences. #Quote by Romeo Dallaire
Tolerate quotes by Mark Graban
#71. You get what you expect and you deserve what you tolerate. #Quote by Mark Graban
Tolerate quotes by Peter Drucker
#72. The arts alone give direct access to experience. To eliminate them from education - or worse, to tolerate them as cultural ornaments - is antieducational obscurantism. It is foisted on us by the pedants and snobs of Hellenistic Greece who considered artistic performance fit only for slaves ... #Quote by Peter Drucker
Tolerate quotes by Timothy Dolan
#73. Neither I nor anyone in the Church would ever tolerate hatred of or prejudice towards any of the Lord's children. #Quote by Timothy Dolan
Tolerate quotes by Fleur Adcock
#74. Somehow we manage it: to like our friends, to tolerate not only their little ways but their huge neuroses, their monumental oddness: "Oh well," we smile, "it's one of his funny days." #Quote by Fleur Adcock
Tolerate quotes by Mary Gordon
#75. For the Irish, life is a matter of perpetual grievance. We remember the Famine, but forget the Draft Riots. We seal off our neighborhoods to strangers, but allow our own priests to victimize our own children. We worship violence and we enslave ourselves to alcohol, we lie and steal and kill without conscience for generations at a time. But it's all right in the end, and do you know why? Because we don't tolerate lust. #Quote by Mary Gordon
Tolerate quotes by J.K. Rowling
#76. I WILL NOT TOLERATE MENTION OF YOUR ABNORMALITY UNDER THIS ROOF! #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Tolerate quotes by William James
#77. Regarding mutual tolerance: It is negative in one sense, but positive in another. It absolutely forbids us to be forward in pronouncing on the meaninglessness of forms of existence other than our own; and it commands us to tolerate, respect, and indulge those whom we see harmlessly interested and happy in their own ways, however unintelligible these may be to us. Hands off. #Quote by William James
Tolerate quotes by Georgette Heyer
#78. I said, Quiet!"
Tiffany was so much startled by this peremptory reminder that she gasped, and stood staring up at the Nonesuch as though she could not believe that he was speaking not to his cousin, but actually to her. She drew in her breath audibly, and clenched her hands. Miss Trent cast a look of entreaty at sir Waldo, but he ignored it. He strolled up to the infuriated beauty, and pushed up her chin.
"Now, you may listen to me, my child!" he said sternly. "You are becoming a dead bore, and I don't tolerate bores. Neither do I tolerate noisy tantrums. Unless you want to be soundly smacked, enact me no ill-bred scenes!"
There was a moment's astonished silence. Laurence broke it, seizing his cousin's hand, and fervently shaking it.
"I knew you was a right one!" he declared. "A great gun, Waldo! Damme, a Trojan! #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Tolerate quotes by David Benioff
#79. Your mother's cunt has a peculiar tubular shape!' he yelled. 'Nonetheless, I tolerate its effluvium and enthusiastically lick its inner folds whenever she demands! #Quote by David Benioff
Tolerate quotes by Erich Fromm
#80. In erotic love, two people who were separate become one. In motherly love, two people who were one become separate. The mother must not only tolerate, she must wish and support the child's separation. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Tolerate quotes by Charles Dickens
#81. That, for these reasons, the jury, being a loyal jury (as he knew they were), and being a responsible jury (as they knew they were), must positively find the prisoner Guilty, and make an end of him, whether they liked it or not. That, they never could lay their heads upon their pillows; that, they never could tolerate the idea of their wives laying their heads upon their pillows; that, they never could endure the notion of their children laying their heads upon their pillows; in short, that there never more could be, for them or theirs, any laying of heads upon pillows at all, unless the prisoner's head was taken off. #Quote by Charles Dickens

Tolerate quotes by Richard A. Posner
#84. One understands why law clerks follow the Bluebook. But why a judge would direct his law clerks to do so, or even tolerate their doing so, is a mystery to me. Are judges sheep? Why should they care what kids at the Harvard Law Review consider proper abbreviation? #Quote by Richard A. Posner
Tolerate quotes by Georges Bataille
#85. The fact is, that what de Sade was trying to bring to the surface of the conscious mind was precisely the thing that revolted that mind ... From the very first he set before the consciousness things which it could not tolerate. #Quote by Georges Bataille
Tolerate quotes by Rick Riordan
#86. [Percy] kept hoping things would get better for Annabeth and him, but their lives just got more dangerous, as if the Three Fates were up there spinning their futures with barbed wire instead of thread just to see how much two demigods could tolerate. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Tolerate quotes by Maggie Smith
#87. It's true I don't tolerate fools but then they don't tolerate me, so I am spiky. Maybe that's why I'm quite good at playing spiky elderly ladies. #Quote by Maggie Smith
Tolerate quotes by Howard Zinn
#88. No doubt that anarchist ideas are frightening to those in power. People in power can tolerate liberal ideas. They can tolerate ideas that call for reforms, but they cannot tolerate the idea that there will be no state, no central authority. So it is very important for them to ridicule the idea of anarchism to create this impression of anarchism as violent and chaotic. It is useful for them. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Tolerate quotes by John C. Maxwell

Tolerate quotes by Christina Engela
#90. Who is an elected government in a constitutional democracy to decide it will not tolerate dissent. #Quote by Christina Engela
Tolerate quotes by Cleary James
#91. The first time he had hit her, he had been so wracked with remorse, she had actually felt sorry for him. Consumed by guilt and self-loathing, he had sobbed in her arms like a child, swearing it would never happen again and begging for her forgiveness. Her stomach turned over now at the thought of how she had comforted him, assuring him that she trusted him and promising that she would never leave. She saw now with sickening clarity that she had been setting a precedent - giving him permission to do it again; reassuring him that she would tolerate anything.

If only she had walked out there and then. #Quote by Cleary James
Tolerate quotes by Dean Hale
#92. One can only tolerate the absolute idiocy of Man for so long before bringing out the bat. #Quote by Dean Hale
Tolerate quotes by Robert E. Ornstein
#93. Society would not tolerate legislation declaring that the theory that the sun circles the earth be given equal time with the theory of a heliocentric solar system; it should not pay attention to the equally preposterous notions of scientific creationism #Quote by Robert E. Ornstein
Tolerate quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#94. Men hate intelligence in women. It cannot flame; it cannot burn; it cannot burn out and end up in ashes, having been consumed in adventure. It cannot be cold, rational, ice; no warm womb would tolerate a cold, icy, splendid mind. It cannot be ebullient and it cannot be morbid; it cannot be anything that does not end in reproduction or whoring. It cannot be what intelligence is: a vitality of mind that acts directly in and on the world, without mediation. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
Tolerate quotes by Karen Michelle Miller
#95. When you learn to love yourself, you will no longer tolerate mistreatment of any kind. Not from him. Not from her. And not from YOU. #Quote by Karen Michelle Miller
Tolerate quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#96. You can't tolerate anybody attempting to threaten or intimidate your body. You must respond with force. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Tolerate quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#97. How many more nights and weird mornings can this terrible shit go on? How long can the body and the brain tolerate this doom-struck craziness? This grinding of teeth, this pouring of sweat, this pounding of blood in the temples ... small blue veins gone amok in front of the ears, sixty and seventy hours with no sleep. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Tolerate quotes by Edward De Bono
#98. Only the human brain can deliberately change perceptions, change patterns, invent concepts and tolerate ambiguity. #Quote by Edward De Bono
Tolerate quotes by Doris Lessing
#99. We, as a society, can't tolerate very much difference. #Quote by Doris Lessing
Tolerate quotes by Maya Dusenbery
#100. The default to studying men at times veered into absurdity: in the early sixties, observing that women tended to have lower rates of heart disease until their estrogen levels dropped after menopause, researchers conducted the first trial to look at whether supplementation with the hormone was an effective preventive treatment. The study enrolled 8,341 men and no women. (Although doctors began prescribing estrogens to postmenopausal women in droves - by the midseventies, a third would be taking them - it wasn't until 1991 that the first clinical study of hormone therapy was conducted in women.) An NIH-supported pilot study from Rockefeller University looked at how obesity affected breast and uterine cancer didn't enroll a single woman. While men can develop breast cancer - and a small number of them do each year - as Rep. Snowe noted drily at the congressional hearings, 'Somehow I find it hard to believe that the male-dominated medical community would tolerate a study of prostate cancer that used only women as research subjects. #Quote by Maya Dusenbery
Tolerate quotes by Robert J. Havighurst
#101. The modern world needs people with a complex identity who are intellectually autonomous and prepared to cope with uncertainty; who are able to tolerate ambiguity and not be driven by fear into a rigid, single-solution approach to problems, who are rational, foresightful and who look for facts; who can draw inferences and can control their behavior in the light of foreseen consequences, who are altruistic and enjoy doing for others, and who understand social forces and trends. #Quote by Robert J. Havighurst
Tolerate quotes by George R R Martin
#102. His stomach could not tolerate the snails and lampreys and other rich food Captain Khorane so relished, and after his first meal at the captain's table he spent the rest of the day with one end or the other dangling over the rail. #Quote by George R R Martin
Tolerate quotes by Maryann Brandon

Tolerate quotes by John Steinbeck
#105. Adults, in their dealing with children, are insane," he [Ed Ricketts] said. "And children know it too. Adults lay down rules they would not think of following, speak truths they do not believe. And yet they expect children to obey the rules, believe the truths, and admire and respect their parents for this nonsense. Children must be very wise and secret to tolerate adults at all. And the greatest nonsense of all that adults expect children to believe is that people learn by experience. No greater lie was ever revered. And its falseness is immediately discerned by children since their parents obviously have not learned anything by experience. Far from learning, adults simply become set in a maze of prejudices and dreams and sets of rules whose origins they do not know and would not dare inspect for fear the whole structure might topple over on them. I think children instinctively know this," Ed said. "Intelligent children learn to conceal their knowledge and keep free of this howling mania. #Quote by John Steinbeck

Tolerate quotes by Geraldine Brooks
#107. The book has survived the same human disaster over and over again. Think about it. You've got a society where people tolerate difference, like Spain in the Convivencia, and everything's humming along: creative, prosperous. Then somehow this fear, this hate, this need to demonize 'the other'
it just sort of rears up and smashes the whole society. Inquisition, Nazis, extremist Serb nationalists ... same old, same old. #Quote by Geraldine Brooks
Tolerate quotes by Matthew Lysiak
#108. We can't tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change. We will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. No single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world, or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. But that can't be an excuse for inaction. Surely, we can do better than this. If there is even one step we can take to save another child, or another parent, or another town, from the grief that has visited Tucson, and Aurora, and Oak Creek, and Newtown, and communities from Columbine to Blacksburg before that - then surely we have an obligation to try.

They can get in faster, get out faster, and thereby improve everybody's chances, yours as well as theirs. But that still doesn't make it fun to be slammed against your spine at ten times your proper weight. But #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein

Tolerate quotes by J. Michael Straczynski
#112. When we say I won't take this anymore, that's when we know who we are and what we'll tolerate. Until we're tested, we don't know those things. That's when we wake up. That's when we know who we are. That's when people will show up and take your side. When you decide what it is you stand for, when standing is the hardest. #Quote by J. Michael Straczynski
Tolerate quotes by Nicholas Kristof
#113. Technology companies must constantly weigh ethical decisions: Where should Facebook set its privacy defaults, and should it tolerate glimpses of nudity? Should Twitter close accounts that seem sympathetic to terrorists? How should Google handle sex and violence, or defamatory articles? #Quote by Nicholas Kristof
Tolerate quotes by Willow Madison
#114. What? Don't you want a girl who can talk dirty to you?"
His look only hardens. "No, Lucy. I'm serious. I won't tolerate that from you." He doesn't look away and I feel that heat in the pit of my stomach, spreading down again.

Tolerate quotes by Jules Henry
#116. To think deeply in our culture is to grow angry and to anger others; and if you cannot tolerate this anger, you are wasting the time you spend thinking deeply. One of the rewards of deep thought is the hot glow of anger at discovering a wrong, but if anger is taboo, thought will starve to death. #Quote by Jules Henry
Tolerate quotes by William Allen White
#117. Since others have to tolerate my weaknesses, it is only fair that I should tolerate theirs. #Quote by William Allen White
Tolerate quotes by Stephane Hessel
#118. If you want to be a real human being - a real woman, a real man - you cannot tolerate things which put you to indignation, to outrage. You must stand up. I always say to people, 'Look around; look at what makes you unhappy, what makes you furious, and then engage yourself in some action.' #Quote by Stephane Hessel

Tolerate quotes by Amber Kell
#121. My darling goddaughter, Olivia, was the little girl of my friends, Max and Jeff. She was turning four, and it was time to transition her from her shortened toddler bed to a full-size big girl bed. It would be the bed where she'd have her childhood dreams and her teenage angst. I wanted it strong enough to tolerate her little girl bouncing and her teenage flouncing.
It had to be perfect. #Quote by Amber Kell
Tolerate quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#122. His hands moved lightly over her velvet-covered back. His voice was very soft. "Have you been a good girl in my absence?"
"Yes, of course," she said breathlessly.
St. Vincent gave her a disapproving glance and kissed her with a seductive gentleness that sent her pulse racing. "We'll have to remedy that immediately. I refuse to tolerate proper behavior from my wife."
She touched his face, smiling as he nipped at her exploring fingertips. "I've missed you, Sebastian."
"Have you, love?" He unfastened the buttons of her robe, the light eyes glittering with heat as her skin was revealed. "What part did you miss the most?"
"Your mind," she said, and smiled at his expression.
"I was hoping for a far more depraved answer than that."
"Your mind is depraved," she told him solemnly.
He gave a husky laugh. "True."
She gasped as his experienced hand slipped inside her robe. "What part of m-me did you miss the most?"
"I missed you from head to toe. I missed every freckle. I missed the taste of you... the feel of your hair in my hands... Evie, my love, you are shamefully overdressed. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Tolerate quotes by Ayelet Waldman
#123. Another parent's different approach raises the possibility that you've made a mistake with your child. We simply can't tolerate that because we fear that any mistake, no matter how minor, could have devastating consequences. So we proclaim the superiority of our own choices. We've lost sight of the fact that people have preferences. #Quote by Ayelet Waldman
Tolerate quotes by Henry David Thoreau

Tolerate quotes by Amy Poehler
#126. I often look to men to model behavior," she goes on after a pause. "Not because I want to squelch what's feminine about me, but because sometimes I want a little more action, a little less feeling in my interactions. I've been doing this thing lately where I try to talk slower at meetings. I take a lot of meetings with women and we all talk really fast. But every guy talks so much slower. Maybe there's a scientist who could tell me why, but I think men are just a little bit more comfortable taking up conversational real estate. So I've been seeing how slow I can tolerate talking. I'm doing it now. Let me tell you, it's really hard for me. #Quote by Amy Poehler
Tolerate quotes by Laura Busche
#127. I faced people from all walks of business who fully disregarded design (though they were completely influenced by it). I also met fine artists who drowned in their own work and the dense creative universe in their minds.

Then I met designers. And instantly fell in love. Let me tell you why.

Designers are familiar with critiques. They not only tolerate them but actively look out for them. They honestly believe in iterations and learn to edit down their work. They embrace simplicity and create beauty based on requirements other than their own. Design education teaches you to run away from assumptions and to have the stomach to scrap your work often.

I'm bringing this up because it's time to bridge the gap between design and business. #Quote by Laura Busche
Tolerate quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#128. Ms. Lane."Barrons' voice is deep, touched with that strange Old World accent and mildly pissed off. Jericho Barrons is often mildly pissed off. I think he crawled from the swamp that way, chafed either by some condition in it, out of it, or maybe just the general mass incompetence he encountered in both places. He's the most controlled, capable man I've ever known.
After all we've been through together, he still calls me Ms. Lane, with one exception: When I'm in his bed. Or on the floor, or some other place where I've temporarily lost my mind and become convinced I can't breathe without him inside me this very instant. Then the things he calls me are varied and nobody's business but mine.

I reply: "Barrons," without inflection. I've learned a few things in our time together. Distance is frequently the only intimacy he'll tolerate. Suits me. I've got my own demons. Besides I don't believe good relationships come from living inside each other's pockets. I believe divorce comes from that.

I admire the animal grace with which he enters the room and moves toward me. He prefers dark colors, the better to slide in and out of the night, or a room, unnoticed except for whatever he's left behind that you may or may not discover for some time, like, say a tattoo on the back of one's skull.

They treat it with a strange gizmo, A little silver tube. the membrane can't tolerate silver. The healer inserts the little silver tube in the patient's throat and he breaths through it until it gets over the illness. You're my little silver tube.

Tolerate quotes by Holly Schindler
#135. Occasionally, family members may reach a point in which they cannot tolerate the odd behavior of the schizophrenic any longer. Often, this leads them to seek help. Other times, it causes said family member to walk away, like the complete raving jerk that she is. #Quote by Holly Schindler
Tolerate quotes by Mary Gaitskill
#136. But I think that this apparent desire to be a victim cloaks an opposing dread: that Americans are in truth profoundly, neurotically terrified of being victims, ever, in any way. This fear is conceivably one reason we initiated the particularly vicious and gratuitous Iraq war―because Americans can't tolerate feeling like victims, even briefly. I think it is the reason that every boob with a hangnail has been clogging the courts and haunting talk shows across the land for the last twenty years, telling his/her "story" and trying to get redress. Whatever the suffering is, it's not to be endured, for God's sake, not felt and never, ever accepted. It's to be triumphed over. And because some things cannot be triumphed over unless they are first accepted and endured, because, indeed, some things cannot be triumphed over at all, the "story" must be told again and again in endless pursuit of a happy ending. To be human is finally to be a loser, for we are all fated to lose our carefully constructed sense of self, our physical strength, our health, our precious dignity, and finally our lives. A refusal to tolerate this reality is a refusal to tolerate life, and art based on the empowering message and positive image is just such a refusal. #Quote by Mary Gaitskill
Tolerate quotes by Holly Sprink
#137. As Christians we must realize there are millions of people in the world (indeed, within the Christian faith) who do not live by our worldview, and we must learn how to interact with them, love them, and tolerate them. #Quote by Holly Sprink

Tolerate quotes by Jordan Petersen
#139. ...no clear-seeing, conscious woman is going to tolerate an unawakened man. So, Eve immediately shares the fruit with Adam. That makes him self-conscious. Little has changed. Women have been making men self-conscious since the beginning of time. They do this primarily by rejecting them - but they also do it by shaming them, if men do not take responsibility. #Quote by Jordan Petersen
Tolerate quotes by Gloria Steinem
#140. When you stand up for yourself and try to be autonomous and self-determining, you're called a lot of names that we all know and that are very common. You may lose your job. You may lose custody of your child. You may be blamed for the failure of your marriage even though it was the man who couldn't tolerate an equal relationship. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Tolerate quotes by Tim Ward
#141. A few days ago Tan Casipo said to me, 'Some people come here with so much dust in their eyes it's unbearable to talk to them.' What does that say about the monkhood? He can't tolerate people with 'dust in their eyes.' All that these monks have developed here is a safe little self-centred world which they call holy because villagers bow down to them. Living in a forest and wearing a robe doesn't make you better than anybody else. #Quote by Tim Ward

Tolerate quotes by Brian Reynolds Myers
#145. The idolatry of food cuts across class lines. This can be seen in the public's toleration of a level of cruelty in meat production that it would tolerate nowhere else. If someone inflicts pain on an animal for visual, aural, or sexual gratification, we consider him a monster, and the law makes at least a token effort at punishment. If someone's goal is to put the "product" in his mouth? ... #Quote by Brian Reynolds Myers
Tolerate quotes by John Wyndham

Tolerate quotes by Ronald Wright
#147. Like most problems with technology, pollution is a problem of scale. The biosphere might have been able to tolerate our dirty old friends coal and oil if we burned them gradually, but how long can it withstand a blaze of consumption so frenzied that the dark size of this planet glows like a fanned ember in the night of space. #Quote by Ronald Wright
Tolerate quotes by Steven Kotler

Tolerate quotes by Alain De Botton
#151. We seem normal only to those who don't know us very well. In a wiser, more self-aware society than our own, a standard question on an early dinner date would be; "And how are you crazy?"
The problem is that before marriage, we rarely delve into our complexities. Whenever casual relationships threaten to reveal our flaws, we blame our partners and call it a day. As for our friends, they don't care enough to do the hard work of enlightening us. One of the privileges of being on our own is therefore the sincere impression that we are really quite easy to live with.
We make mistakes, too, because are so lonely. No one can be in an optimal state of mind to choose a partner when remaining single feels unbearable. We have to be wholly at peace with the prospect of many years of solitude in order to be appropriately picky; otherwise, we risk loving no longer being single rather more than we love the partner who spared us that fate.
Choosing whom to commit ourselves to is merely a case of identifying which particular variety of suffering we would most like to sacrifice ourselves for.
The person who is best suited to us is not the person who shares our every taste (he or she doesn't exist), but the person who can negotiate differences in taste intelligently - the person who is good at disagreement. Rather than some notional idea of perfect complementarity, it is the capacity to tolerate differences with generosity that is the true marker of the "not overly wrong" #Quote by Alain De Botton
Tolerate quotes by Desiderius Erasmus
#152. In short, no association or alliance can be happy or stable without me. People can't long tolerate a ruler, nor can a master his servant, a maid her mistress, a teacher his pupil, a friend his friend nor a wife her husband, a landlord his tenant, a soldier his comrade nor a party-goer his companion, unless they sometimes have illusions about each other, make use of flattery, and have the sense to turn a blind eye and sweeten life for themselves with the honey of folly. #Quote by Desiderius Erasmus

Tolerate quotes by Karl Popper
#155. I have insisted that we must be tolerant. But I also believe that this tolerance has its limits. We must not trust those anti-humanitarian religions which not only preach destruction but act accordingly. For if we tolerate them, then we become ourselves responsible for for their deeds. #Quote by Karl Popper
Tolerate quotes by Cal Thomas
#156. We tolerate, even promote, many things we once regarded as evil, wrong, or immoral. And then we seek "explanations" for an act that seems beyond comprehension. Remove societal restraints on some evils and one can expect the demons to be freed to conduct other evil acts. #Quote by Cal Thomas

Tolerate quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#163. Fucked-up people will try to tell you otherwise, but boundaries have nothing to do with whether you love someone or not. They are not judgments, punishments, or betrayals. They are a purely peaceable thing: the basic principles you identify for yourself that define the behaviors that you will tolerate from others, as well as the responses you will have to those behaviors. Boundaries teach people how to treat you, and they teach you how to respect yourself. #Quote by Cheryl Strayed
Tolerate quotes by Sheila Ballantyne
#164. Everything is ambiguous. It's exciting, in a way, if you can tolerate ambiguity. I can't, but I'm taking a course where it's taught, in the hope of acquiring the skill. It's called Modern Living, and you get no credit. #Quote by Sheila Ballantyne
Tolerate quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#165. As for the tenets of the Brahmans, we are not so much concerned to know what doctrines they held, as that they were held by any. We can tolerate all philosophies ... It is the attitude of these men, more than any communication which they make, that attracts us. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau

Tolerate quotes by Phil Crosby
#167. People are conditioned to believe that error is inevitable ... However, we do not accept the same standard when it comes to our personal life. If we did, we would resign ourselves to being shortchanged now and then when we cash our paychecks. We would expect hospital nurses to drop a certain percentage of all newborn babies. We would expect to go home to the wrong house periodically. As individuals we do not tolerate these things. Thus we have a double standard, one for ourselves, one for the company. #Quote by Phil Crosby

#172. One of the things I say is from an evolutionary point of view: probably the ideal rich environment for a baby includes more mud, livestock, and relatives than most of us could tolerate nowadays. #Quote by Alison Gopnik
Tolerate quotes by Stephanee Killen
#173. Life is the best teacher, just as it is. It is the toughest teacher. It won't tolerate slothfulness for long. It's always throwing some difficult problem your way and then seeing what you will do with it. #Quote by Stephanee Killen
Tolerate quotes by Ben Bernanke
#174. Over the years, the U.S. economy has shown a remarkable ability to absorb shocks of all kinds, to recover, and to continue to grow. Flexible and efficient markets for labor and capital, an entrepreneurial tradition, and a general willingness to tolerate and even embrace technological and economic change all contribute to this resiliency. #Quote by Ben Bernanke
Tolerate quotes by Andrew Ashling

Tolerate quotes by Sylvia Day
#176. One day at a time. You rise, you eat, you bathe, and you talk to the few people you can tolerate while feeling so wretched. Over time, it hurts a little less. Then a little less. And so on ... Until one morning, you will awake and realize the pain is only a memory. It will always be with you, but it will eventually lack the power to cripple you. #Quote by Sylvia Day
Tolerate quotes by Lisa Kudrow
#177. Since I had the baby I can't tolerate anything violent or sad, I saw the Matrix and I had my eyes closed through a lot of it, though I didn't need to. I would peek, and then think, oh OK, I can see that. #Quote by Lisa Kudrow
Tolerate quotes by Rem Koolhaas
#178. Our society can no longer tolerate ugliness. You see that in cars, sofas and women. [But] ugliness also has a right to exist. #Quote by Rem Koolhaas
Tolerate quotes by Richard Hofstadter
#179. The fundamentalist mind...is essentially Manichean; it looks upon the world as an arena for conflict between absolute good and absolute evil, and accordingly it scorns compromises (who would compromise with Satan?) and can tolerate no ambiguities. #Quote by Richard Hofstadter
Tolerate quotes by Amanda Lance
#180. If she had loved him, he would have opened windows, allowed all of that precious light of hers in she wanted! If she could tolerate him, he would have donated to every stinking animal shelter in her name, quit his drinking habits completely, and played music for her anytime she wanted! He would have gone out, faced the cruel public, and embraced their scorn just to be close to her, continued to hide in the shadows of her life until she needed him ...
If she had loved him, he would have done anything. #Quote by Amanda Lance
Tolerate quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#181. In this world of human affairs there is no worse nuisance than a boy at the age of fourteen. He is neither ornamental nor useful. It is impossible to shower affection on him as on a little boy; and he is always getting in the way. If he talks with a childish lisp he is called a baby, and if he answers in a grown-up way he is called impertinent. In fact any talk at all from him is resented. Then he is at the unattractive, growing age. He grows out of his clothes with indecent haste; his voice grows hoarse and breaks and quavers; his face grows suddenly angular and unsightly. It is easy to excuse the shortcomings of early childhood, but it is hard to tolerate even unavoidable lapses in a boy of fourteen. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Tolerate quotes by Michael Ben Zehabe
#182. Voices of village idiots roiled in a jester's stew of odds-making tomfoolery. Occasionally, a monkey screamed in the heat of competition, and crude words were freely spoken. The more sophisticated were forced to tolerate such low-minded displays. #Quote by Michael Ben Zehabe
Tolerate quotes by Roald Dahl
#183. She decided that every time her father or her mother was beastly to her, she would get her own back in some way or another. A small victory or two would help her to tolerate their idiocies and would stop her from going crazy. #Quote by Roald Dahl
Tolerate quotes by Lawrence Eagleburger
#184. If we had made it clear from the very beginning that we were not going to tolerate another nuclear power on the face of the earth, and had done it in Korea, where we could have accomplished it militarily, if necessary, I would put a stop to it and would have put a stop to it there. #Quote by Lawrence Eagleburger
Tolerate quotes by Harold E. Varmus
#185. All basic scientists who look to the NCI for funding should know that I will tolerate no retreat on the study of model systems and the pursuit of fundamental biological principles. #Quote by Harold E. Varmus
Tolerate quotes by Mary McCarthy
#186. The strongest argument for the un-materialistic character of American life is that we tolerate conditions that are, from a materialistic point of view, intolerable. #Quote by Mary McCarthy
Tolerate quotes by Eric Hoffer
#187. The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbor as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Tolerate quotes by A.S. King
#188. Ready for the big Day of Tolerance?" she asks. "Are you kidding?" I ask. "I'd rather poke my eyes out with dull forks. But we have to do what we have to do, right?" Kristina nods. "I say we tolerate the shit out of it." - Ask the Passengers #Quote by A.S. King
Tolerate quotes by Raymond E. Feist

Tolerate quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#190. Never tolerate low thoughts of my Lord Jesus. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Tolerate quotes by Sai Baba
#191. Let anyone speak hundreds of things against you, do not resent by giving a bitter reply.
If you tolerate such things, you will certainly be happy.
If anybody wants any money from you, and you are not inclined to give, do not give. But do not bark at him like a Dog. #Quote by Sai Baba
Tolerate quotes by Julie Anne Long
#192. One could tolerate an acid tongue for a time when the owner of it was so very pretty. #Quote by Julie Anne Long
Tolerate quotes by Germaine Greer
#193. Human beings are better equipped to cope with disaster and hardship than they are with unvarying security, but as long as security is the highest value in a community they can have little opportunity to decide this for themselves. It is agreed that Englishmen coped magnificently with a war, and were more cheerful, enterprising and friendly under the daily threat of bombardment than they are now under benevolent peacetime, when we are so far from worrying about how many people starve in Africa that we can tolerate British policy in Nigeria. #Quote by Germaine Greer
Tolerate quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#194. The strength of a person's spirit would then be measured by how much 'truth' he could tolerate, or more precisely, to what extent he needs to have it diluted, disguised, sweetened, muted, falsified. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Tolerate quotes by Vance Havner
#195. God judges what we tolerate as well as what we practice. Too often we put up with things we ought to put out. #Quote by Vance Havner
Tolerate quotes by Tom Shales
#196. If the networks can get audiences to tolerate pop-up promos by the dozens, maybe they'll start selling pop-up commercials, too. #Quote by Tom Shales
Tolerate quotes by Tananarive Due
#197. I would say that in my black readership, more of my readers tolerate the horror aspect of my work, you know. 'I don't usually read this kind of stuff, but.' #Quote by Tananarive Due
Tolerate quotes by John Milton
#198. If there be any difference among professed believers as to the sense of Scripture, it is their duty to tolerate such difference in each other, until God shall have revealed the truth to all. #Quote by John Milton
Tolerate quotes by Karen Armstrong
#199. If we are to avoid catastrophe, the Muslim and Western worlds must learn not merely to tolerate but to appreciate one another. A good place to start is with the figure of Muhammad: a complex man, who resists facile, ideologically-driven categorization, who sometimes did things that were difficult or impossible for us to accept, but who had profound genius and founded a religion and cultural tradition that was not based on the sword but whose name - "Islam" - signified peace and reconciliation. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Tolerate quotes by Jerry Vlasak
#200. Get arrested. Destroy the property of those who torture animals. Liberate those animals interned in the hellholes our society tolerates. #Quote by Jerry Vlasak
