    tolerance Quotes

    — Tony Blair
    Universities are renowned for their tolerance of unusual characters, especially if they show originality and dedication to their research.

    — Tony Attwood
    I already love the idea that Barry has a colleague. It seems like a love/hate thing between my character and his already. They work together, so they clearly have some tolerance for each other, but they're just ruffling each other up the wrong way, constantly. I don't know whether that will lead to him being suspicious of Barry's identity or whether he'll have some clash with The Flash.
    — Tom Felton
