If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.
John F. Kennedy
It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.
Sports are such a great teacher. I think of everything they've taught me: camaraderie, humility, how to resolve differences.
Human spirit is the ability to face the uncertainty of the future with curiosity and optimism. It is the belief that problems can be solved, differences resolved. It is a type of confidence. And it is fragile. It can be blackened by fear and superstition.
Patriotism is love of country. But you can't love your country without loving your countrymen and countrywomen. We don't always have to agree, but we must empower each other, we must find the common ground, we must build bridges across our differences to pursue the common good.
The uniform makes for brotherhood, since when universally adopted it covers up all differences of class and country.
I do believe that the original sources of all religions should be taught, because with that we will find our similarities, not just our differences.

Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible - the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.

America isn't Congress. America isn't Washington. America is the striving immigrant who starts a business, or the mom who works two low-wage jobs to give her kid a better life. America is the union leader and the CEO who put aside their differences to make the economy stronger.
We will not agree on every issue. But let us respect those differences and respect one another. Let us recognize that we do not serve an ideology or a political party; we serve the people.
Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.

Here in America, we don't let our differences tear us apart. Not here. Because we know that our greatness comes from when we appreciate each other's strengths, when we learn from each other, when we lean on each other, because in this country, it's never been each person for themselves. No, we're all in this together. We always have been.
Share our similarities, celebrate our differences.
M. Scott Peck
