Intolerance

Nothing dies so hard, or rallies so often as intolerance.

Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887) American politician.

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.

Eric Hoffer (1902-1983) American philosopher and author.

Intolerance is a form of egotism, and to condemn egotism intolerantly is to share it.

George Santayana (1863-1952) American philosopher and poet.

Intolerance respecting other people's religion is toleration itself in comparison with intolerance respecting other people's art.

Wallace Stevens (1879-1955) American Modernist poet.
