"You shall love your neighbor as yourself." - Matthew 22:39
We need to be tolerant and always willing to accept other people like they are. There are so many wars just because of misunderstanding. If only everyone learn to communicate effectively by letting each other know how they feel, then it would be much easier to relate to one another. Then tolerating them isn't a task.

"There is great diversity among human beings. Physically we differ from each other in things such as size, body structure, skin color, and facial features. We also differ from one another mentally, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. One of the greatest challenges of a healthy spirituality is learning to tolerate the differences we find in one another and not to view these differences as threats to ourselves. Moreover, a healthy spirituality should lead us to celebrate our differences and to see them as a reflection of God's beneficence and creativity." - Traits of a Healthy Spirituality
“In the practice of tolerance, one's enemy is the best teacher.” - Dalai Lama
