Thoughts that Rekate to Tolerance

I just sent the address for this blog to someone who is writing about virtues, and teaching such virtues to children. At the present time, that writer is focusing on the virtue of tolerance.

I have selected a statement by Abdu'l-Baha that reflects his own views on tolerance. Here is that statement:

"Let us put aside all thoughts of self. Let us close our eyes to all on earth. Let us neither make known our sufferings nor complain of our wrongs. Rather let us become oblivious of our own selves, and drinking down the wine of heavenly grace, let us cry out our joy, and lose ourselves in the beauty of the All-Glorious."

The above passage was taken from the book Selections from the Writings of Abdu'l-Baha
