Understand, not just tolerate

I am not asking you to merely tolerate each other. Tolerance is for cowards. Being tolerant requires nothing of you, but to be quiet and not make waves, holding tightly to your views and judgments without being challenged. Do not merely tolerate each other. Work hard! Move into uncomfortable territory and seek to understand each other.
