Google defines the term ‘tolerance’ to be “the ability or willingness to tolerate the existence of opinions or behaviour that one dislikes or disagrees with” and “the capacity to endure continued subjection to something such as a drug or environmental conditions without adverse reaction.”
Simply put, tolerance is the act of forbearing. When life gives us lemons, only the ability to tolerate will get us through and the hope that one day life will become better. To tolerate in life is thus a virtue we must all develop in our life.
Helen Keller, in fact, has said, “The highest result of education is tolerance.”
