The importance of tolerance :) A gentle reminder from Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Voltaire, George Eliot and Martin Luther King. Compiled by John Farndon with piano by Lola Perrin and contributions from Julia Warr, Johanne Bertaux-Strenna and Lucie Farndon. Thanks
“If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.” Says Nelson Mandela
"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind." Mahatma Gandhi
"Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding." Ralph Waldo Emerson
"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 responsibility of tolerance lies with those who have the wider vision." George Eliot
"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word." Martin Luther King, Jr. "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
