Quote
To tolerate is to take upon oneself; a tolerance that comes into being on the backs of others is no longer tolerance. To tolerate the suffering of others, to tolerate an injustice of which we are not a victim or an atrocity that we are spared is not tolerance but selfishness, indifference, or worse.”
